UNHITCHING FROM THE CRAZY TRAIN
You have a picture of how your life should go. We all do. The dream job. Close friendships. Loving, grateful children. A perfect marriage. But more often than not, life doesn’t go according to plan. So we corral and control, determined to make our picture come true. Our emotional, spiritual, and even physical well being are taken for a crazy ride as our very sanity becomes dependent on how closely reality matches our expectations. No wonder we’re exhausted. We’re hitched to the crazy train, and we want to get off. But how?
“Come to Me,” Jesus says, “and I will give you rest.”
Join counselor and teacher Julie Sparkman as she explores Jesus’ gentle yet costly invitation to true rest—rest that is dependent on the finished work of a Savior who will never leave us alone.
Julie’s book is one most women can identify with, life gets so hectic we forget there is a way to unhitch from the crazy train this fallen world throws at us. If we trust in God and His plan for us we would see He really does give us peace and life, to stay focused on Him is the way.
There are many treasures in the book that her scripturally sound teaching helps us to see and understand, I can’t say enough good things about it.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
