A few weeks ago I was listening to a Christian Talk show on our local Christian radio station when I heard an interview with Mark Herringshaw talking about his new book "Nine Ways God Always Speaks" he co-authored with Jennifer Schuchmann. I was very impressed with his interview and as I traveled in the car listening to him it was raining and the sun was shining and I was looking for God to speak through his rainbow. At that point I knew this is a book I wanted to read.
The next evening I was on Twitter and I was searching what people were saying about a Burger King commercial I found very inappropriate. I clicked on a profile of a person who felt the same way I did. On her background page was the picture of this book. My first reaction was to laugh. I had discovered the Jennifer the co-author of the book. I knew then God was speaking and he wanted me to read this book. Jennifer and I chatted for a bit a I felt very connected to her and I knew God had his hand in that. Jennifer was kind enough to send me the book to read as well as one to giveaway to one of my readers. I have not finished it all yet but I am really enjoying it hope you will as well.
“Was the dream I had last night a message from God, or was it just the pizza I had for dinner?”
“Was that last e-mail from my boss God’s way of telling me to find a new job?”
“Was that billboard a sign from God, or was it just a sign?”
Perhaps you’ve never heard God speak.
Maybe you have, but you’re afraid to admit it.
Whatever your situation, the truth is, we all long to hear from God. We want his approval, his comfort, and his divine direction.
God is so much bigger and more amazing than we can possibly comprehend. What if he has more than one way of reaching out to us?
What if God is always trying to talk with us, but while we’re expecting a Morgan Freeman voiceover, he’s communicating through other people, circumstances, or seemingly random occurrences?
In Nine Ways God Always Speaks, Mark Herringshaw and Jennifer Schuchmann use compelling stories from the Bible, history, and ordinary people who have seen God work in their lives to show that God not only wants to communicate with us, but he can and does—often in unexpected and surprising ways.
One reader will win their own copy of "Nine Ways God Always Speaks". To enter leave me a comment telling me a way you think God speaks to you.
