Review Take Hold of the Faith you Long For
Many Christians are just happy with their status quo comfort zones. Author Sharon Jaynes gives the reader a little push with such chapters as: `Take Hold of your True Identity`, `Take hold of Grace-Filled Acceptance`, and `Taking Hold of your Promised Land`. Sharon did an excellent job of laying out the chapters as the book seemed to flow flawlessly.
I believe the author's position, in this book, is at the bottom of page 12. "We think going from where we are to where we want to be is impossible, implausible, or unrealistic, so we pull up a lounge chair in the land of in-between and settle in.
This book captured and held my attention. I learned I am already a new creation, I don't have to wait to get to heaven to be a new creation. It's also something I don't have to strive for. I already am. I also learned that giving up control is not our natural bent as humans. However, when Christ makes us new He gives us the ability to give control to Him.
The author walks the reader with Moses. At first telling God `no` and explaining to Him why we can't do what He asks, before accepting the `yes` from God.
