Beautiful Soul

I am almost done reading "The Life God Blesses" by Gordon MacDonald, only few chapters left. There are three subjects from this book which I think every Christian must know. The first one is the questions guide to have a beautiful soul.

1. Who am I really trying to please?
2. What needs am I trying to meet? What insecurities am I pampering? And what feelings am I storing up?
3. With whom/what am I competing?
4. What rewards am I seeking?
5. What guilt or shame might I be covering?

These five questions must be answered every time we make choices or decisions or about to do something in our Christian life. It was austerely and yet meticulously answered in the book so I suggest you grab a copy. I'm not done yet reading like I have said but in my opinion this is one of the best books that everyone must read to have a life God will truly blesses! I will share the other two very important subjects on my next posts.

Wow, I am so glad I read your latest blog. Those 5 questions are ones that I see right now I have to answer. They correspond to a post I just finished.

Yes, I will have to get that book, thanks for suggesting it. Will look forward to your further thoughts.

Would ask for your prayers, been in a valley (deep) lately and seeking freedom.

Hello brother! I am glad you're blessed with my post! I have two or three more coming from that book for I do really want to have a "life that God really blesses".

I'll keep you in prayers. Stay in touch.
