Don’t settle for Satan’s lies, only believe in God’s best.
Sarah Jakes’ newest book “Colliding With Destiny” describes the pain of life we all experience and compares it with Ruth’s. We (Christians) try so hard to hide our problems, and settle for less than God’s best because we feel God has forgotten us and we can’t do any better.
In her sophomore project, Sarah tells us to use our past mistakes and setbacks as a testimony to encourage other people. Christians can even use it to encourage themselves to aim for better in their life. Ruth’s husband died, and she devoted her life to taking care of her widowed mother-in-law. Picking up scarps of grain leftover from harvesters led her to meet the landowner, Boaz, which changed her life forever.
“Colliding With Destiny” quotes the book of Ruth and ends each chapter with a prayer to God. Sarah’s purpose for this book is to lead believers to search the scriptures for evidence that their blessed future is coming.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to be encouraged. If life has throw you the worst punches possible and you need hope that everything will work out for your good, then Sarah’s book is for you.
I love the following words from “Colliding With Destiny”:
“We all must set our price, and it can’t fluctuate depending on who’s interested. Your price is your price… Don’t give yourself away to the lowest bidder because you’re afraid no one else will want you.”
