My Thoughts

First of all, this book is fantastic.  I have highlighted, underlined, starred, arrowed, and written all over it.  All the things in here, I knew, in some way.  I’ve learned these things through Scripture, church, my parents, sisters, my counselor, and my studies.  Yet, here, they are in one package.  All condensed, labeled, and organized.

I am making notecards to keep close by when I need a reminder.  This book can give you the tools you need to be free.  For me, freedom has not come easy.  I hold onto the wrongs I’ve done, and I try to fix everything.  That is not freedom.  Honestly, that is me trying to be Jesus.  I am not Jesus.  He was perfect.  I am far from perfect.  However, I can be Jesus with skin on, which is a Jesus with boundaries.
