A Sudden Glory
I love reading a book by author Sharon Jaynes; she is a wonderful speaker, author and woman of God. It seems that she knows what I am going through every time I pick up one of her books. A Sudden Glory was no different, it is a must read for all woman.
Sharon uses her own personal stories and the word of God to teach us about “a glory ache.” What is a glory ache you ask? Sharon describes a glory ache as being a persistent longing to experience God’s presence on a daily basis. I know personally I feel this way a lot and this feeling leaves me thinking I’m not doing enough for God so I find more things to do but that’s not what we should be doing.
I love this quote that Sharon makes in this book, “the real question is not “What does God want from you?” but “What does God want for you?” Sharon describes a day when she is having her quiet time and God reveals this to her by revealing Acts 17:28 In Him we live, we move and have our being. Wow, is all I can say, if we truly listened for God’s voice sometimes we will see that all God wants for us is to be still and listen.
I encourage every one of you to pick a copy of A Sudden Glory up and read it, expect a change of heart and expect for her to step on your toes. I am so thankful that God has blessed Sharon Jaynes with the ability to write what He lays on her heart.
