In today’s post, I thought I would share some articles that I have read around the web. I also wanted to let you know that I have recently updated my book list for 2020. There have been a couple of books that I read recently that I would like to recommend to you.
The first is Dark Clouds, Deep Mercy: Discovering the Grace of Lament by Mark Vroegop. I have been reading some of the psalms of lament. This book along with the author’s personal testimony of lament was a great help to me.
The other book I would like to recommend is Walking from East to West: God in the Shadows by Ravi Zacharias. This man’s testimony of God’s amazing saving grace touched a chord deep in my soul. It reminded me that God is at work and that He can save anyone! We may not understand what God is doing in someone’s life, but we can be assured that He is not willing that any should perish!

One line in the letter struck me with both comfort and conviction: ‘I faithfully pray for you, for your children, and for your future generations.’
I am one of those grandchildren…”
How 2020 Is Taking a Toll on Your Soul
“Could it be that God didn’t wire us to carry every event, taking place in every part of the world, at every moment, as if it were ours? Could it be that technology has produced a faux omniscience and omnipresence that is hurting mankind and not helping it?”
Until the next time…

I loved Ravi Z’s autobiography. I gave my copy to one of my son’s best friends whose family is originally from India. His parents came here to work at the University. I don’t know if he ever read it but I keep praying he will and that Ravi’s testimony will touch his heart.
That’s wonderful. I pray he will read it.
