I Have Been Blessed

All about how God has blessed me. In my marriage, with my six children, through homeschooling, and our faith with recipes, large family living, and updates on our life.

Book Review – Crazy Love

on May 27, 2011

Loved it, loved it, loved it.

I love a book that challenges you to be better. The title of the Book, comes from the fact that We are who we are, and God loves us so much more than we deserve, and in our human-minds, this is a crazy concept. WHO do you love enough to sacrifice your only born child for? Yeah, me either. But God loves me this much, isn’t that crazy!

The book challenges in a way, that here God loves me this much, but how much do I love him, how much am I giving back to him? Just more than those other people, or as much as I should? Am I personifying God in my choices? Am I giving him enough of me? Is anything less than everything, enough?

One part I really loved about the book, was it said to take 1 Corinthians 13 (the Love Chapter) and insert your name. If God is love, and we are supposed to personify him in our actions, than we should be personifying love. So this is the test. Can you insert your name into all those ‘Love is’ …? Love is patient, Love is kind ……what if it read, ‘Christina’ is patient, ‘Christina’ is kind. If you insert your name throughout the whole passage, is it 100 percent true? Yeah, me neither. But it definitely, easily, points out to me the areas I need to work on me! And a book that shows me how to be a better me, is a book I like!

Have a Blessed Day!
