Who is on God's “guest list” for your life . . . and why? The answers may surprise you.
Through touching true stories and inspiring insight Debbie Macomber takes readers on a journey to discover the shaping influence others have on us and the power we have to shape and influence those whose paths cross ours.
Each of us have “influencers” that have affected our lives - some from a distance, some through word or deed, some through example, be it good or bad. Often we don't even recognize the deep impact others have had and how God has used them to shape us into who we are. By pausing to recognize these influences we begin to grasp how God's guest list had a purpose far beyond what we imagined. We begin to see the seeds of influence that grew into our personal values and character.
I am 71 years old, and am at an age of appreciating all the persons in my life's journey. I especially enjoyed the scriptures cited to reinforce the point being made. For those of us that follow the Bible and try to live by its rules and laws this book made a lot of sence. It was so calming that I would fall to sleep while listening to it! Want to read again.
I read this book years ago and recently loaned to a friend who has been majorly depressed and anxiety filled. It is helping her to look outside of herself. I decided to buy the audio version so that I myself would have a quick, "pick-me-up" when needed. I highly recommend it for anyone who needs to be reminded of how important human beings are for each other!!
I enjoyed the book and all the messages it has to offer. It has a reflective value with each story.
