Sprititually Stronger in 40 days! ~ Book Review

When Spirtually Stronger in 40 days {Kindle Edition} arrived for me to review, my immediate thought was 'Oh! This book was written for me."  I was already anticipating the goodness it would behold but the surprises inside where so much more that that.  This book is about faith .. having it, wanting it, faltering in it, sharing it, growing in it.   Here I stand at the crossroads in my life ~ wanting to know Him so much more than I do, craving that spiritual growth that I know I need.  Yet, what is the first step?  I read my bible, attend worship services, get my family up and out the door each week to faith groups ... but do I really know Him?  This book tells you that you do and CAN take those steps 
- it just won't happen overnight! 

When you are wanting a deeper relationship with Christ, one thing is clear.  There are no free lunches!  You must clear your mind, open your heart, and fully let Him in.  It's okay to hope for better things as long as we freely welcome God's will for us.  This book is written in a way that you take each day as a learning tool.  As you travel this book's journey, it gives you daily lessons and scriptures and homework to complete, which is simple but thought-provoking.  It reads at a nice even pace each day and for me, it helped to have a bible nearby for referencing and making personal notes from books in the bible.  

God's riches are given to us every single day - and often in forms we may not be aware of.  One key point that Serge points out is "God has already provided for your needs.  Whatever your needs, trials, rough seas you are navigating, and miracle you need, God has already taken all the steps necessary to meet them."  Don't you love that He knows what we need before we do!  

Another point of reference I found inspirational was this passage: "Focus on fulfilling God's plan for your life.  Make it your goal to discover it ... and implement it."  Amen!  To grow in faith means to truly relinquish characteristics that aren't so healthy for you ~ like mistrust, guilt, feeling of betrayal or bitterness, anxiety and despair.  He wants to give you a life of peace, love, joy, hope and faith.  Enough faith to move the mountains you feel are in your path and to live the life He wants for you!

Are you at the crossroads, too?  Spritually Stronger in 40 days! is a remarkable   treasure of a book on faith and the journey it holds for each of us. Hebrews 11:1 shares with us "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”  Faith is a personal journey and this book is a guide essential for your spiritual strength!  Grow it.  Live it.  Believe it!

Here is a short biography on the author:

Author Serge Roux-Levrat:   By many world criteria, Serge Roux-Levrat had a very successful life. He had received a privileged education, worked for some of the world's most admired companies, and before the age of 37 had realized a life-long ambition: to become CEO of a publicly-quoted company. In this capacity, he had the opportunity to join the world elite at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, in 2001. He was married to the woman of his dreams, and had two beautiful children. He had "everything" to be happy, right? However, this was not the case. In his heart, he didn't have peace since he always felt pressured to perform and to prove himself to the world; he was restless, unhappy and found no meaning in life. 

Until one day, and through one of life's surprises, he got to know the living God! Not the god he had heard from as a child: a god who wants people to be poor and suffering; a god who is defined by a bunch of rules, a list of dont'ts , s straight jacket for life. No. He got to know a God of love and a God of life; a God who wants us to live in complete freedom, to be full of expectancy, to pursue amazing dreams, and to enjoy so much abundance that it overflows!

Following his encounter with Jesus, he spent seven years he what he calls "God's detoxification clinic" before becoming Ambassador of Jesus Christ to Europe and starting with his family 
for SRL Ministries (www.SRLministries.org), a non-denominational and not-for-proft Christian association. SRL Mininistries aims to help both unbelievers and Christians open new taps of abundance in their lives.
