My source is in God and Him alone.

This book has been a blessing. I’m actually going to reread and listen again. I am walking away KNOWING it an assurance that I am God’s child and He loves me and cherish me and that He is enough for me. More than able to meet me at all the points of my needs. I need God not man and in alone will I find my significance. I need not long for man. My past doesn’t define me either. And contrary to popular belief, whatever I went through, can be shed and left in the past. Again it’s an assurance that God loves me and He wants the best for me and man has no power over me and my thoughts accept that which I give to him/her/them.
There’s this hunger for Him in me. I want to know God more and allow the Holy Spirit to do His work in me and I am equipped with the knowledge that it is God that has the final say NOT man. And also to the point that God is interested in EVERY AREA OF MY LIFE. Like there’s nothing He doesn’t want to know about that He doesn’t already know.
He’s prepared to also heal everything that I may have encountered. Wipe my slate clean and given me the assurance that I am worth it. He’s the one that authorizes my significance and imagine, my significance is in Him.
Thank you DDK for this recommendation I’m going back to start again with this book. The healing has started in my mind and I’m grateful 🙏🏽

Wish Audible had the unabridged version

It’s a great book, I just wish the full version were available through Audible, to get more of the “meat” that supports the outline.

must read for every Christian

everyone needs to supplement God's view of us. this book truly changed the way I see myself and comforted me with the insight it has. God's plan is waiting for us and this book helps us to get over our issues by simply allowing the truth to have its place in us. It creates that excitement again reading/listening to how it fits in our lives.

I am grateful that this book is available. At this time in my life I am seeking information that allows me to face the truth and have suggested solutions that are realist. I am a poor writer but this is the best I could do let the author know how much wonderful this book is.

Powerfully Amazing!

Truly insight you didn't know you needed and the power that comes from looking at yourself through Gods eyes! This is a must read for anyone who has suffered from rejection, shame, the fear of failure, and self punishment. This is one of those books you need to listen too several times on order to mine all the valuable riches found inside!

A must read

The epic problem our society faces is lack of identity. We struggle for acceptance through performance and what others think of us. The author explains how to find our significance and our purpose.

Learn what is really holding you back in life!

This book brings to the suffice the things we hold back deep inside of ourselves in our conscious mind! While it does not bring judgment, it will help you get an understanding on why you may have a problem believing that God hears your prayers and have faith in him to move you forward physically, mentally, emotionally and most of all spiritually. This is a must-have in your library. I have the audible and hard copy of this book!
