Book Review: Good Things: Seeing Your Life Through the Lens of God's Favor by Kevin Gerald





I am coming out of a difficult season in my life. Well, at least, I hope I am coming out of it. . .Good Things by Kevin Gerald looked like an uplifting book to help me shift my focus to the good things in my own life and push past some discouragement from the hard things I just experienced. I was not disappointed.

Coming from that point of view, I found Good Things to be an engaging read.When Kevin Gerald begins the book, he asks the reader two questions. One of them is "What do you think God thinks of you?" That question especially made me uncomfortable as I realized that I lived with the premise that God doesn't really think much of me and that I need to do all kinds of good things to earn God's favor. In fact, Kevin Gerald tells me in this book that God wants to provide me (and all of His children) with good things. Gerald uses Bible verses and life experiences to encourage the reader to look for favor in their own life.

I found this book to be the breath of fresh air I needed right now. I would recommend it to anyone else who has been in a rut of faulty thinking that they don't deserve God's favor. I found the chapters short and easy to read and learn from. I especially liked that Good Things offers takeaway Bible verses and quotes from each chapter in a section at the end of the book. It would be easy to re-read those regularly to keep your heart and mind focused on God and His hope and favor.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review. This book is set to release October 20, 2015 in both paperback and ebook formats.
