When God Says "Go": Rising to Challenge and Change without Losing Your Confidence, Your Courage, or Your Cool by Elizabeth Laing Thompson

36459623When God Says "Go": Rising to Challenge and Change without Losing Your Confidence, Your Courage, or Your Cool

Go.One small word. . .so much power. 

When God says, “Go,” we face one of life's greatest decisions.
When God says, “Go,” we must face our fears. . .our excuses. . .and our selves.
When God says, “Go,” it's time to answer His call wherever it leads.

When God says, “Go," what will you do?

Author Elizabeth Laing Thompson invites you to walk alongside people of the Bible who were called by God to fulfill His purposes. . .people like Moses, Rebekah, Abigail, Jeremiah, Mary, and others. These Bible heroes responded much like we do--with a jumbled-up inner storm of excitement and fear, insecurity and hope. Their stories and struggles will provide a roadmap for your own story, helping you face your very own doubts, regrets, and worries.

When God calls, it’s time to go. Maybe somewhere new, someplace you've never been. Maybe it’s time to go forward after being stuck with one foot in the past. Maybe it’s time to go deeper—in Bible study or relationships. Time to go higher—in prayer or dreams. Time to go and give—to use talents and opportunities God has given you. Or maybe it’s time to go and grow, right where you are. . .to dig into the Word, dive into your heart, and become the woman God is calling you to be.  

Ready or not, God is calling us all to go somewhere new in our walk with Him. So what are we waiting for? Let’s answer His call. Let’s get started!
When God says "Go" is a great and challenging book. Having read another book by this author, I very much enjoyed this book as well! This book is one that will encourage readers to grow in their relationship with the Lord and in their faith. The author writes this book with humor and laughter in such conversational style all while telling the truth from the Bible. She uses many faithful Bible heros to tell how believers can answer His call. This book is a great book to read or to read as a devotional. I believe it is a great way to hear the voice of God in your quiet time, at the pick up line when you're waiting for your kids at school or to give to someone as a personal gift. I give this book 4/5 stars. 
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review.
