Litfuse Review: Unsinkable Faith by:Tracie Miles
About the Book:
For many people, remaining optimistic and feeling positive about themselves and their lives is a constant battle—especially when circumstances are difficult and life is hard. For others, negativity is something that only sneaks up from time to time, yet still wreaks havoc in their hearts. Regardless of the root causes, once pessimistic thoughts permeate our minds, our feelings and emotions begin to control us instead of us controlling them.
Eventually it doesn’t seem possible to stay positive, happy, and full of joy, and negative thought patterns shake our faith, causing us to sink emotionally, mentally, and spiritually over time. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Despite what storms roll in, hearts anchored in God don’t sink. When we change the way we think, we can change the way we feel and live, even if our circumstances remain the same. Intentionally embracing the opportunity to experience a transformed heart and a renewed mind opens the door for a changed life, because a positive mind will always lead to a more positive life.
In Unsinkable Faith, author and Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker Tracie Miles offers hope for women who struggle with negativity. Each chapter explores Tracie’s and other women’s personal stories, showing how they rose above their circumstances by transforming and renewing their minds. Unsinkable Faith is a breath of fresh air for anyone longing for a heart full of joy, an unbreakable smile, and a new, more optimistic perspective on life.
Its hard among women to not compare yourself. Whether its your skills as a wife, mother, or friend we all compare ourselves. Women are particularly known for this. We always feel that we don't measure up. Tracie Miles knows what you and I are feeling. She has been there and she shows us how to take every thought captive.
Negativity is hard thing to beat but nothing is too hard for God. He can take even the biggest mountain and crumble it at our feet. He cares about all the stuff we care about and He loves making us smile. He is a good Father, that only has our best interests at heart. The author takes personal stories from herself as well as many others. She uses them to encourage us and lift us out of the negativity so that we can live in freedom.
A great book to help us, especially on the bad days!
