“Not Forsaken” book by Louis Giglio chapter 7

This chapter is summarized as GOD soooooooooo loves you. If you read no further in this post. You probably are thinking. Steve I know this! Share with something I didn’t know.

My heart is racing as I type this review. Remember when you were a kid and either on Christmas Eve or birthday eve when you knew the next day something special was going to happen.

A surprise present 🎁 and anticipation was amazing. Or as an adult you take a new job and the day before your first day, how nervous you probably are?

These are examples are meant to highlight this chapter gives example after example how much God loves you.

The more you seek and know your father. The more familiar you get with him and appreciate his bounding love!

“it’s important to see that everything we’ve received is wrapped up in a Someone. The blessing is not a thing. The blessing is a Person. God is the blessing—our perfect Father.

As this statement says. Our perfect father wants you to know that and his word want that.

There are a couple personal stories in the chapter as examples and while I won’t reveal them. ( see how I did that anticipation and if Louis or one of his staff reads this, I might help sell a few more books 🙂)

They build hope and help further cement positive feelings that weren’t there at the beginning of the book. I loved the upbeat and honest approach talked through out the chapter.

As much as I enjoy reading books. Chapter 7 is a turning point where I am 2/3 the way through the book. How much more will be covered that isn’t already been discussed.

I am the type of person as soon as I learn something meaningful. I want to put into action. How do I take such an exciting chapter and keep the fire 🔥 alive to further my walk?

As soon as I had this thought. One of the highlights was scripture:

“How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young—a place near your altar, Lord Almighty, my King and my God. (Ps. 84:1–3)”

That makes me even more excited to take concepts and apply Gods written word. If that scripture doesn’t get your heart pumping faster and excited! Not sure what will.

After a few chapters, there are ideas and concepts that might reveal things in our life that might make us feel vulnerable. This chapter builds hope. You get an initial sense of Gods love like you might not had before.

Many things have been introduced to this point. For me, my perspective and appreciation for my Heavenly Father is growing leaps and bounds.

On to chapter 8…
