AmyL4 Stars Out Of 5There Is MoreJune 25, 2018AmyLQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Brian Houston's newest book,There is More: When the World Says You Can't, God Says You Can, is a reminder to live life with expectancy. Houston reminds the reader that God gives us dreams that ask us to put our faith in the Creator - the only one who can truly fulfill the dream in the first place.
There is More reminds us that when we are obedient to God, we see "more" on the other side. That we are given blessings when we choose to live life according to how God asks us to live.
"Your ability to hold fast to the promises of God, trust in His provision, and believe that His desire for your life is abundance will hold you in good stead time and time again."
The focus is not so much on what God can do for us, but rather how we can live our lives for God and as a result, we experience blessings and the fulfillment of dreams we never imagined possible.
I appreciated the fact that Houston doesn't assert we won't always get what we want - that sometimes we have to make choices and sacrifice the thing we think is the dream in order to actually fulfill the dream. Houston doesn't promise a perfect life. Instead, he promises an exciting journey with God that will propel us to something greater than we thought possible when we chose to trust God and lean into His Word.
Houston reminds us to submit and surrender our plans before the throne because it is then that God is best able to use us for His glory.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher and NetGalley. This review is my own, honest opinion.

Treenz5 Stars Out Of 5Encouraging and inspiring!February 10, 2018TreenzQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As a kiwi growing up in this part of the world, and being in these circles with common friends for years, it was great to get my hands on Brian's newest book. Full of positive, uplifting words, Brian shares stories from his life growing up in New Zealand and how they got to Sydney and some of the challenges he and Bobbie faced before Hillsong came to be. He uses examples of experiences the church has gone through also to illustrate his points throughout. This book encourages the reader to hold fast to God in all situations because there is always more.
As always, I enjoy Brian's teaching style, his wisdom and his unwavering commitment to God. He certainly has experienced some amazing miracles on his journey and God has really been faithful to him. He is very inspiring. This is a great book to read and I recommend it.
