Way back in May I was asked to review the book Maybe Today by David Butler and Emily Belle Freeman. I have read and reviewed some of Emily Belle Freeman’s books in the past, so I was excited to read this book. I received the book right before my trip to Alaska, so I thought I would take it with me to enjoy in the peace of “our” woods. I say “our woods” because we were going to our property in the woods to work and I knew this would bring some nice relaxation time. So, without further ado, here is my Maybe Today Book Review. My hope is that it will help you to decide to get a copy of this book for yourself and maybe even those you love.
Just one of those days…
The kind of day that hints toward disappointment, discouragement, and the possibility of failure.
Maybe you are facing tasks that seem beyond your ability to accomplish, or a stack of things left undone.
Or perhaps today holds unexpected adventure, filling your heart with the anticipation of good things to come.
Or maybe today you found yourself weary from waiting on the Lord or in need of courage to face the unknown.
Yes, it’s quite possible that this day is one of those.
But maybe today could be different.
Maybe Today is a fairly quick ready, with lovely photographs through out the book. It made me think about the time I spend filling my soul, my unschedule moments and even my scheduled moments. It made me ask if my heart is content. It made me wonder what I should be doing differently in my life each day to walk closer to Christ.
David Butler and Emily Belle Freeman take us through Five Holy Patterns that we should follow to walk closely with Christ, to have a soul satisfying life, to be all we can be, to be all in. I highly recommend this book to all those who are looking for a way to add more to their lives and souls.
I’ve talked before about my faith and that it is a fairly simply faith. I just believe. I don’t have a deep, scholarly knowledge of the Scriptures. However, I have absolutely no doubt that Christ is my Savior and the Savior of the world. No doubt at all. He has and will always carry me through my trials, He will rejoice with me when I have happy things happen, He will guide me in my walk, if I but listen to Him. I don’t lack faith at all. However, what I lack is taking time to read His word each day. I need quiet and I need to listen. How about you?
Find a quiet place each day and search your soul. Build a soul satisfying life. Be all you can be. BE ALL IN.
