YOUR BATTLES BELONG TO THE LORD

30 08 2019

your-battles-belong-to-the-lord cover    I absolutely loved this book, and I learned so much!  We need to realize who we are fighting, which is not people.  They are just being used.  We need to realize that satan is the culprit behind every evil work.  We also need to know how to win our battles, and that is what Joyce Meyer has endeavored to do.  We also need to know that some battles we do some of the work and God does the rest.  We have our job in resisting the devil.  It’s not all up to God.  As I have always said in my Christian walk – the if/then clause.  You do your part and then God will do His.  This is a must read for all Christians.

 

Conquer your problems with God’s help and know your real enemy.Have you ever felt you tried every solution on earth to solve a problem, but nothing worked? Have you ever wondered where the difficulties you face are coming from? Joyce Meyer has answers.In Your Battles Belong to the Lord, Joyce explains that once you recognize the devil-who is real and active in the world today-as your true enemy and the source of many of your struggles, you can overcome them and live a life of peace, freedom, faith, and victory. When facing life’s battles, there are certain things you must do for yourself, like being diligent to study and apply God’s Word, trusting Him, praying, helping others, and maintaining a confident attitude and a thankful heart. But there are other things only God can do. When you do your part, God does His-and He is always ready and eager to defend and help you. In this fresh approach on spiritual warfare, Joyce focuses not only on the nature and strategies of the enemy, but also on the true character and love of God, who will always lead you to triumph. No matter how difficult your challenges are, because God is on your side, you have all you need to win every battle.

A SILKEN THREAD

SILKEN THREAD COVER

 

I will say that I was very disappointed in this book.  I have read Kim Vogel Sawyer before and really enjoyed her writing, but this book does not come up to her standards.  This book is set after the Civil War, where there is still unrest between the two races.  There is an exposition going on, but that civil unrest is there.  The country is poor and it is hard to get work.  I consider this book as a do not read.  In fact, I was unable to finish because I was not enjoying this at all.  This will not stop me from reading Kim Vogel Sawyer’s books, though, because I do know she is a good writer.

 

Eighteen-year-old Laurel Millard, youngest of seven children, is expected to stay home and “take care of Mama” by her older siblings, but Laurel has dreams of starting her own family. Operating a silk loom at the Atlanta Exposition will give her the chance to capture the heart of a man wealthy enough to take care of Laurel and any children she might bear, as well as her mother.

 

Langdon Rochester’s parents have given him an ultimatum: settle down with a wife or lose his family inheritance. At the Exposition, Langdon meets Laurel. Marrying her would satisfy his parents’s command, she would look lovely on his arm for social events, and in her besotted state, he believes she would overlook him continuing pursuing rowdy adventures with his unmarried buddies. Langdon decides to woo Laurel. Willie Sharp is not well-off and must take on an extra job at the Atlanta Exposition as a security guard. When mischief-makers cause trouble in the Women’s Building, Willie is put in charge of keeping the building secure. He enjoys visiting with Laurel, who seems like the little sister he never had, but his feelings for Laurel change to something much deeper. Can Willie convince Laurel that he can give her better life–even with so little to offer?
