Awakening by Stovall Weems (Book Review)


Upon receiving my book i was hesitant about reading it. Though I am a Christian I have never practiced fasting, and inn this book Stoval really hits the subject hard. He explains so much that I now understand the general concept, however I must admit I did not fast nor do I long do to it...........by myself. I feel that it would have a greater impact if it were a group effort with support and accountability.

Yet it is not all about fasting, it is totally about awakening, awakening your spirit and love for Christ. Stovall explains the reason for awakening in several different scenarios, which I soon understood once my own scenario came into play. When we accept Christ and allow him to take control of our lives, we have this deep passion for his love much like we did the day we faced marriage proposal.

Our hearts were filled with compassion,excitement and overwhelmed with joy. We have a ceremony and pour our hearts into our vows, meaning every breath taking word. Then life hits, we are still in love but the passion is gone. We begin to pour our hearts into things that have less meaning than our purpose because the world tells us that is how it is suppose to be. But it's not and Stoval explains why with scripture.

Awakening is just that it is an Awakening of your faith bringing back the passion you once had for Christ Jesus and shows you how to keep that passion for every day life. By sharing these simple steps * experiencing surrender * experiencing passion for God * experiencing God's goodness *creating space for God to fill, Stovall explains how to remain awakened.

“I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review”.

I Am Back!

Just when you thought it was over, you turn a corner and see me standing there. Yes I am back and blogging again.....

As I shared in my "final" post, I wasn't following the savings steps I was preaching therefore felt guilty and convicted of being someone I was not....the very thing I hated about blogging all together. However over the past few months I have come to realize, that Prudent Wisdom isn't about practicing what I preach.

Being Prudent is to be careful and practical, a way of practicing common sense....I was reaching too high.

And Wisdom is to utilize knowledge, experience and understanding.....I may not be the wisest of all fools but I do have the ability to think.

Together Prudent Wisdom is nothing more than one carefully traveling through the journeys of life and sharing each experience in the search of understanding. Whether it be through clipping coupons or pinching pennies being prudent is the way I survive.

So here I stand, well actually sit with a k…

I Tweeted in Church

OOPS!

No really it was the silent type so no reason form me to excuse myself or be embarrassed.

However I did blush a little when the quest pastor favorited my tweet.....

Yes you read that right "the quest pastor favorited my tweet"

But did he realize I tweeted while he was preaching?

I am not sure...

Maybe that's why he liked it??

Or maybe, it was his way of letting me know I was busted....

Which brings the question;

Is tweeting in Church considered rude?

What do you think?
