It’s Okay To Start Small

Standard

003-january-3Has this ever happened to you? You wake up in the morning filled with hope. You have a lot of things to do in mind. You’re excited! You opt to do something outside of your plans thinking it will not take long. Then another thing comes up, and you give in to it again. Then you realize later that it’s already nighttime and you’re not even halfway through your plans for the day. You stop for a while and wonder how all those hours passed by so quickly. Then you sleep with regrets. The next day comes, and your hopes are high again, but what happened yesterday will only repeat itself. *Sigh*

I, for one, don’t want to be in that situation ever again. I won’t allow distractions to keep me from the finish line anymore. I will start small. Earlier today, I decided to read this book again. Only this time, I won’t put it off until I read it in its entirety.

Book Review: How’s Your Soul?

How’s Your Soul?: Why Everything that Matters Starts with the Inside You

You may have asked yourself: “Where do I go when life overwhelms me? Where do I go when all I want is an escape?” You’re not alone. Here, you will discover how to have a quiet soul despite all the noise and distractions around you. Do yourself a favor by getting a copy of this book. Feel free to share it with many others, too.

I didn’t expect that a book (with a cover like this one) about the condition of our souls would make me chuckle for countless times. This book may contain God-glorifying wisdom but smack dab in the same book is funny stuff that you can’t resist. Ps. Judah Smith is just hilarious!

Speaking of comical stuff, the part of the story that involves Pastor Jude is my favorite! Nyahaha… Future readers, watch out! I highly recommend you don’t read it in a library. You’ll surely be sent out.

I love the author’s transparency. He’s just so honest and generous to share even his mishaps, which most normal people won’t have the audacity to bring into the open.

I’m so delighted to have known some personal facts about Ps. Judah Smith. Know of an author who doesn’t read much? Ps. Judah Smith, it is! And this makes me wonder why he writes oh so well. God works in mysterious ways really.

The author has his admirable way of making things comprehensible.

This book doesn’t only have the power to touch hearts but is also founded on the Word of God, so you can never go wrong by picking up this one.

This amazing book also reveals a few misconceptions we have but sometimes are not aware of; it corrects them by pointing us to Jesus Himself.

This book also made me fall in love with Jesus all over again, which makes it perfect for those who have lost their “first love.” This will help you get it back. You’re welcome!

This book reminded me of the wonderful things God has done for me.

I have lost count of how many highlights I have made on the book. I would love to share everything if that were possible, but let me quote a few:

“Our souls are home when they return to God.”

“Your feelings come and go, but God remains the same, and you will praise him again. It’s only a matter of time.”

“There was a time not too long before when you thought you’d never make it, that the storms and waves were going to win. But you held on, and God got you through.”

“I want more of Jesus so that I can love the way he loves.”

“Quietness and rest are found not in control but in surrender.”

“A quiet soul is far more valuable than fame and fortune. A level soul, a balanced soul, a genuine soul— that is a gift from God.”

“Whatever you do, don’t give up. You have a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, and he will see you safely to the other side.”
