ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
Total trust leads to total commitment that brings Him glory in everything we do every moment of every day. Complete commitment will change how we wipe runny noses, do the laundry, answer the phone, or carry out our responsibilities at work. God deserves and desires our total unreserved surrender. It is easy to piously say, “Lord, I love you and I’m serving you,” and then continue to control the rest of our lives without a thought to include Him. Struggles come when we let people, things, or responsibilities take our focus off of God. No matter what the distraction, keeping Him first is essential. Many times pride overtakes our heart as we compare our spirituality with that of someone else.
Anything we love more than God is an idol that must be dethroned. This superlative love requires a daily surrender to the Lord for Him to remove the idols from our hearts.
