One in a Million : Journey to Your Promised Land - Priscilla Shirer

_______________________

This review comes to us today from the unbelievably amazing Sabin Hogue.  If you know her, you love her and if you don't, you are missing out!  Sabin is one of the most giving, caring, spiritually-centered people that I know and I have learned so much from her selfless example and close personal relationship with our Father in Heaven.  Oh, and she also hates it when people pick their nose.  Like, honk-at-them-while-they-dig-for-gold-at-a-stoplight hates it.  So don't do it.  Because she might be watching.

Summary:  What if life on Monday was as powerful as church on Sunday? 

When you meet someone who lives, eats, and breathes Christian faith, you want what they've got more than anything--their seamless intimacy with God, their prayer power, their spiritual stamina, their passionate sense of expectation, the kind that doesn't shrink into despair at the first sign of setback.

But how badly do you want it? Enough to toss anything from your life that keeps you from being 100 percent His?  Enough to allow God's Spirit to bring radical spiritual change that might just scare you right out of your comfort zone?  Enough to wait on God long and hard and invite whatever He requires to get you ready for what's next?

That's how one-in-a-millions do it.

When approximately two million adult pilgrims of ancient Israel left behind their slavery in Egypt, wandering in the wilderness for an entire generation, only two made it safely to the Promised Land.  That's One in a Million who were brave enough to put abundant life to work no matter where they were, no matter how easy it became to just blend in and be average.

And the next one-in-a-million could be you--the minute you decide you've had your fill of halfway faith, the moment you realize that a week is a long time to put off what God has promised you can put on: the deep, daily experience of His ever-abiding presence. 

Get over being average.  Break out of the box.  Don't just want it.  Live it.  Today and everyday.  (Summary from amazon.com - Image from www.bhpublishinggroup.com )

My Review:  Have you ever wondered if there was more to your spiritual walk than what you have? Have you ever wondered if you were created for greater things? Have you ever wondered what God's original design for you was? Then I have an amazing book for you.

In One in a Million you will discover God's purpose for your life is Abundant Living. Just as the Israelites were His chosen people, so are you as a follower of Christ. One in a Million parallels our current day faith walks with the hardships of the Israelites on their Exodus. God never said it would be easy, He just promised it would be worth every step of the way!

My husband and I dreamt of having more children and then one day the heavenly whispering of a Father to His child began, "Do you trust Me?"and "Are you willing to submit to My will even if your dream isn't part of it?" Over and over again I heard these questions asked of me, and over and over again I responded with anger and fear, "If You love me so much WHERE IS MY BABY???" Hot tears streamed down my face most days. Indignation that He wasn't "fair" clouded my view. I was so close to the situation I couldn't see straight, I couldn't hear, or perhaps I wasn't willing to listen.

I knew this was a time to test my faith. My friend brought me her copy of One in a Million just at the right time. A time the Lord knew my heart would listen. A time when He knew I would need it most.

I choose Him. I choose His perfect Will, perfect knowledge, perfect guidance, perfect love, and perfect desire to create me into His perfect image. It will be a journey, with great highs and great lows, but He will be there with us the entire way. Be bold, step out on faith, and open the pages of One in a Million to a whole new life of ABUNDANCE!

My Rating: 5 Stars

Sum it up: In One in a Million you will discover God's purpose for your life is Abundant Living. Just as the Israelites were His chosen people, so are you as a follower of Christ. One in a Million parallels our current day faith walks with the hardships of the Israelites on their Exodus. God never said it would be easy, He just promised it would be worth every step of the way!
