Read It and Do It -- Walk It Out
Most any advice on Christian living includes instruction to be "in the Word," to spend time reading the Bible. How else can we know what God expects?
I am convinced Tricia Goyer would totally agree with that advice . . . but I am also convinced that she would say something like, "But you can't stop there."
In her new book, Walk It Out, Tricia shares her heart in hopes of helping her readers find their paths to authentic walks with God. She shows the way by sharing her own story -- a story that includes ups and downs but that definitely shows the results of hearing what God says and DOING it! She doesn't tell me what my story should be; she encourages me to find what God says to me and to DO that. And she reminds me that I don't have to know the whole plan at once; one step at a time is all that is required.
I've read this book once and been encouraged (maybe even convicted???) to do a better job of walking out God's plans for me. Somehow, I don't think I'm finished; I believe I will come back to these words again and again for help in staying on track to Walk It Out to the fullest! I highly recommend the book to anyone interested in living out God's plans.
I received a digital copy of Walk It Out as part of the author's launch team. I was delighted to share my own thoughts in this review.
About the Book:
What Happens When We Read God’s Word and Actually Do What it Says?
Bestselling Author Tricia Goyer demonstrates the powerful work God accomplishes if we are willing to step out in obedience to Biblical commands and His quiet urgings, no matter our fears or feelings of inadequacy.
Walk It Out illustrates the real-life results of listening to the Scriptural mandates such as care for the orphan, serve the poor, go into the world to spread the gospel, and love others of all races. The author’s journey, from accepting Christ’s forgiveness and telling her story of redemption to answering the call to adopt seven children when she least expected, is filled with the exhilarating, radical, unexpected life that we experience when we walk into God’s plans for us.
“I neither planned or expected any of this—from the ten kids to the stamped-up passport. I didn’t accomplish these things by making a list and checking it off. They happened as I took steps of faith to follow God’s directives.” ~Tricia Goyer
