Happy Friday, friends!
What a delight and surprise it was to me to find this beautiful gem of a book in our church library recently! Though my family has benefited so strongly from the late Dr. Adrian Rogers’ sermons (more info on his ministry, Love Worth Finding, HERE), I never knew that his wife Joyce wrote. I gave this one to my mom to read first, and she flew through it, highly recommending it afterward.
(One of the) First Lines (and a little more!):
You may be wondering a bit about the title of this book. You may be asking, When do we lean hard on Jesus?
In times of trouble, like when a spouse or child is gravely ill? Certainly then.
In times of national tragedy, like September 11? Yes, then we lean hard on Him.
In times of personal grief or pain? Most definitely we lean hard on Jesus then. Really hard.
But that is only part of the answer. For when we catch a glimpse of who we are in light of who He is, when we see rightly our utter dependence and need for Him, we will naturally lean hard on Jesus – in times when we see things working together for good and times when we don’t see anything but the darkest night.
I’m greatly looking forward to reading this one!
Now it’s your turn, friends ~ What are you reading this week, and what’s the first line?
Grace and peace in Jesus Christ,
