I just found out on Kindle.com that someone shared my book with a friend after buying it this week. It was my first digital “borrow” and has gotten me very excited. Do you want to know why? Because someone out there in the world bought my book, read it, and said their friend, “Oh Honey! This book will rock your world. It’s so raw and real. It tells this amazing story of how the Lord redeems even the worst sinners. Here! I’ll let you borrow it.”
Okay. Maybe they didn’t exactly say that, but a girl can dream.
Spreading the truth of God is what Delivered is all about to me. It’s the reason I keep doing the interviews and selling the book. It is the reason I am on social media overload from Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, Google, my website, etc. It is the reason I am writing more books, a Bible study companion, and this blog.
The word of God as it was revealed to me through my adoption process is this: God’s love for you is not based on your behaviors (good or bad). It is sure, full, irresistible, wild, and reliable. God pursues you (even now as you read these words), and God is counter-cultural, completely surprising, and deeply personal in the way He makes us new creations.
There is nothing sweeter than being an instrument of the Lord for His Kingdom to come on earth as it is in Heaven. I pray that you all will experience a real God in a real way on this, the Sabbath.
