Weakness is Not Sin by Wendy Ulrich
This book was pretty good. I know a lot of people who beat themselves up and I think this book addresses those fears and insecurities that people might have. Here's a quote I sent to a friend:
"I realized that my weakness was not in my unwillingness to make sufficient sacrifices, which is what I expected the Spirit to whisper. My weakness, the one God wanted me to humbly bring to Him, was my unwillingness to receive God's grace as enough. Even if God does not spare us hardship, He can spare us despair. The comfort and sustenance of the Spirit can truly be enough if we will let them in. My problem is less my struggle to sacrifice and obey and more my struggle to receive."
So that's it - I only read one. I hit a bump in the road when the person whose library card I use to access library books got a fine and I got restricted. I think we should take a moment to consider how our actions affect other people...just kidding, I should probably go get my own library card. I've added it to my "to-do list" that I never seem to accomplish. Hopefully I'll finish a book or two before next month's book post.
