Reader Reviews of Following God with All Your Heart: Believing and Living God's Plan for You by Elizabeth George
"I found this book to be a source of encouragement and knowledge." - Dorothy M Fizer
One of Elizabeth George's Best
"Following God with All Your Heart is a breath of fresh air. This is a serious call to holiness, in Ms.George's typical gracious, conversational, mother-to-daughter, sister-to-sister tone. I have read many of her books. My favorites include Loving God with All Your Mind and A Woman After God's Own Heart. If I were to be truthful, some of the others, although good, seemed to lack the passion that those first two had. Not so with this one. As if sensing the urgency of the times we live in, Ms. George encourages Christian women to seriously read their Bibles,giving a plan for doing just that. Reading 7 chapters a day brings you through the Bible 2X a year...15 chapters, four times a year. She also has a lot to say about the grace of humility in a believers life. The opposite is pride of course, and one of my favorite quotes from the book is "If you let pride enter into your heart, you cannot expect Gods blessing: for His promised grace goes only to "the humble." She also gives practical examples of what humility looks like and what it does not look like. "All of you be submissive to one another" does not exclude anyone. If you have ever been guilty of lording over other saints, trying to establish yourself as the authority over others in the church, manipulating to get your own way behind the scenes, having to have the last word, or be the one who calls the shots, look out! God will resist, or actually war against you. Scary stuff.
Also, her chapter on contentment was such a blessing. Wherever we are, whatever our physical situation, whatever our hardships or heartaches, God knows, sees and cares! It is all good to those who walk uprightly. This is a wonderfully encouraging book, and a challenge to serious minded christians to read God's word, then trust and obey it, and God will make our way successful." - Sarah Beals
