TO LIVE IS CHRIST
To live is Christ has been written by someone that has allowed the Lordship of Jesus Christ to permeate her life.
This book has been written to show people how important it is to hear God in the most difficult circumstances of life. After my husband died in a motor bike accident, having two children to bring up, I decided to hear God, rather than listen to the advice of those around me. I quickly found that to hear God in all circumstances of life was by far the better option.
Some of the title's in the book include; Your purpose is greater than your pain, Average Joe,The original dreamer.
Each chapter is a unique expression of a period of my life in which God taught me many things.
The Original Dreamer
Our God is the original dreamer. One who dreamed of a kingdom where he ruled and reigned. Where he brought paradise into the lives of man or should I say man into a paradise that he created. Before he created it he dreamt it. Just think a God who dreams, who dreams the type of dreams that neither you nor I could ever imagine. A God who conceived and gave birth to his dream. Think about a world inhabited with his creation, his beautiful creation. He must have walked, enjoyed and been so blessed by what he had created marvelling at its wonder. At the mountains and the breathtaking scenery. But in all of this he must have felt there was something missing. That's how we perceive it. Because that is the way we think. But what about thinking differently about a God that thought it was so beautiful that he wanted to share and enjoy it with those that he would call his children. There was nothing missing from his life as there so often is in ours. We fill our lives with the material or activities because we don't feel whole without them. But God is complete. Therefore because of his wonderful love and nature he didn't want it all for himself. The most natural trait in a perfect human being is finding something good and being blessed by it and then after enjoying its beauty we want to share it with others, not for greed or gain but simply to bless. Think about a God who was so excited by the prospect of talking to those he created, exchanging thoughts and feelings on simple everyday things. What pleasure it must have brought to the father as he walked with us in the garden and marvelled at his children who he taught watching them enjoying the pleasures of each other as well as his creation. There is nothing more wonderful than watching your children enjoy what you have created, even as a human being. We work at our home and leisure time to bring everyday pleasures to our family. Just think how much more God wanted the same for us. The difference was that we didn't have to work for it he simply gave it to us for free with no worries for our future or any needs that he hadn't already met and everyday pleasures in abundance.
