My Heart: Every Beat Surrendered to Our Unchanging God by Julie Manning

My Heart: Every Beat Surrendered to Our Unchanging God

I first heard Julie Manning speak at IF gathering and that is when I knew I had a story to tell. She was the one person in the room that my heart resonated with so deeply, I knew I could not keep my secret any longer. I knew my life wasn't my own and that God had a plan for every single moment of suffering that I was going through. It was from that moment on after hearing her speak; I chose to live. It was uncomfortable to share with others and uncomfortable to not only share, but to take risks, entirely rely on God in places that I never wanted to before and he met me exactly at the point of my need and still does today. 

When I was give the opportunity to My Heart: Every Beat Surrendered to Our Unchanging God I immediately jumped at the opportunity. Julie was the gal that made me share my story, so I was ready to hear more of hers. Julie is a brave soul who bares everything leaving nothing for one to guess. She is all in! You can't pick up this book and wonder what is left, because she writes it all down. She gives the simple mundane and the raw emotions. This book will make you want to cling closer to your husband, it will make you realize that flooded houses and materialistic things don't matter, but a heart that beats only for following God does. The soul thing we all should be looking towards is Heaven. This place is not our home. While we get to be here and live in this place we should be good stewarts, but this is not our final destination and Julie makes it really clear that earth is not her final home. Julie's heart could stop at anytime, so she fully and completely relys on God every second, of every single day. This book will change the way you view your maker, relationships, time, money and people. It will help you to evaluate your priorities and make your more Kingdom minded. I also loved the journal that came with this book. It made me more mindful about praising God for all the things He has done in my life. This book will change your heart and draw you closer to Jesus. I give this book 10/5 stars. I was given a copy by the author for being apart of her street team and was not required to give a positive review.
