More Than These blitz

Welcome to the More Than These blog blitz and giveaway, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

more than theseTitle: More Than These
Author: June Kimmel
Publisher: Ambassador International
Release Date: May 11, 2018
Genre: Christian, NonFiction, Women’s Issues

More Than These: A Woman’s Love for God addresses the question that every woman who desires to walk with God must face. How can a woman love God as she should and keep the rest of her life in its proper place? Innumerable responsibilities fill her life and seek to take control of her time, energy, and focus. In spite of her best intentions, these worthy concerns can slip into a place of prominence in her heart-a place only God deserves. These people and situations that capture her love can quickly become idols when priorities go unchecked.

More Than These: A Woman’s Love for God addresses the issue of a woman’s love for God. Each chapter considers a different aspect of a woman’s life that can become an idol-family, friends, possessions, fears, accomplishments, etc. More Than These: A Woman’s Love for God clearly presents biblical truths and personal illustrations to teach why a woman must surrender these areas to the Lord for Him to remain her ultimate love.

Women are searching for the secret to balancing their lives. More Than These: A Woman’s Love for God declares that loving God supremely is the answer.

How do we take care of ourselves and still be able to help other people? There are mothers, grandmothers, and daughters reading this that are exhausted from caring for others. You are approaching a limit that will leave you ineffective. When you take the time to have a cup of coffee, read a book, or take a leisurely walk, you feel guilty.

In the midst of our caring for the people around us, we can become weary. Our personal, emotional, and spiritual strength diminishes if we minister to others without refreshing our own heart. We will feel empty and weak. The truths from God’s Word that should encourage our hearts seem lost in the confusion of our weary soul. We need to stop and sit at the feet of the Savior.

Time with the Lord refreshes our priorities and renews our focus. Our service to others becomes a joy and not a resented obligation. If we love God supremely, we will serve those around us as if we were caring for the Lord Jesus Himself.

(from pg. 68-69 of More Than These by June Kimmel)
