I haven't finished reading the book yet so I didn't want to comment. However, after seeing a video of an interview with the author I had to say it made me think of a song. The song that came to mind is Walt Harrah's Think About His Love. The simple words:
Think about his love
Think about his goodness
Think about his grace that's brought us through
For as high as the heavens above
So great is the measure of our Father's love
Great is the measure of our Father's love
How could I forget his love?
How could I forget his mercy?
He satisfies. He satisfies. He satisfies my desire.
Even when I've strayed away
His love has sought me out and found me
Those times I've been
Away from him
His loving arms have held me fast
I think for me, reading the book has been like reading a personal love letter from the Lord of how great is His love for me. I know I believe and I know He lives in my heart but my soul did need to hear about His love once again. The message of the book is just so refreshing and as usual life giving to my soul. I fall at my Lord's feet once again and worship Him for He is good and His love endures forever!
Wow!!! I am so thankful for this book!!! So much insights, stories and wonderful encouragement shared in this awesome book. My two friends and I have been meeting at my home every Thursday morning to discuss this study. We will be completeing chapter 7 and 8 next Thursday. I will so miss this study when we are done. It has really touched my heart and made me see the God who sees me!!! I have highlighted and made notes on almost every page. I was especially touched to tears when reading chapter 7. It is so honest and if you ever doubted God Sees You then this book is for you. It will comfort and encourage your heart. Thank you for writing this book Tammy. It is a blessing and a gift to my heart!
This author is very direct and I especially liked how her personality came out in her writing. If you are feeling lonely or lost in the crowd this book is perfect. Our relationship with Christ should be our most important one and understanding how much Christ loves us can change our whole perspective on life.
I thought the book was very encouraging and will really help you in your thinking. You will realize that mattering to Christ is what matters, not how many names you have listed under "friends." Understanding that Christ loves you and no person can care for you as much as Him, is one of the major lessons in the book. There was not a page in the book that I did not find something to think about or learn from.
I found the book to be entertaining without haughtiness. I liked everything about the book and think it is perfect for every woman to read, especially those going through a difficult time or feeling discouraged.
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
In her best book yet, Maltby writes words of hope and healing for people who feel discouraged, forgotten and invisible. In a society where we carefully construct and manage Facebook images, where we boast hundreds of acquaintances and few friends, where text messages substitute for real relationships--many are acquainted with feeling invisible. The message that God sees you, knows you, loves you and forgives you is life-giving. Tammy's practical and down to earth approach strips away pretence and helps you see God's intimate care and concern in practical ways. You'll want a copy for yourself--and another for a friend who needs some encouragement.
