Red, White, and BOOM!!!
Happy Independence Day to you and yours!
I’ll keep this short and sweet because let’s be honest… who wants to read or write a long blog post on a holiday weekend when you could be busy waving a flag, eating potato salad and
blowing off your arms lighting explosives?!? Not this girl and probably not you!
So, since everyone has probably stood in AWE of a fireworks display (Oooo, ahhhh, wowEEE), at least once in their 4th of July lives, let’s give away a book this month that focuses our hearts and attention toward the AWE that you, and I, and the whole world need to marvel at–the glory and grandeur of God’s daily display of HIMSELF!
So what book am I giving away this month?
I am giving away two copies of Awe: Why It Matters for Everything We Think, Say, and Do by Paul David Tripp.
And why am I giving away this book?
Because I like it, and because it’s been convicting, and because maybe you’ll like it and find it convicting, too!
Oh, and because I’m kind of a big fan of authors who happen to also be counselors and Christians; I think that’s a pretty great trio!
So what are a few of my favorite line(s) from this book?
“As it is true of a street sign, so it is true of every jaw-dropping, knee-weakening, silence-producing, wonder-inspiring thing in the universe. The sign is not the thing you are looking for. No, the sign points you to what you are looking for. So you can’t stop at that sign, for it will never deliver what the thing it is pointing to will deliver. Created awe has a purpose; it is meant to point you to the place where awe of your heart should rest. If awesome things in [this world] become your god, the God who created those things will not own your awe.”
So how can you win this book?
In the comment section below, share a recent moment where you stood in AWE of one of God’s “firework displays” in your life and on Tuesday at 9PM (EST), I will randomly select TWO winners to enjoy this book!
Go FOURTH and read!
