Book Review | Be Still and Let God Be God

Title: Be Still: And Let God Be God

Author: Robert Paul Baeyens

My Review:

This book is not one continuous story, but rather a series of writings concerning our relationship with God and how we can not only improve our relationship with God and improve ourselves at the same time.
In this day and age it is difficult for us to sit for any length of time and wait for anything. Everything is instant this and instant that and technology seems to move even faster than we can keep up with… but God is calling us to relax, wait on Him and He will take care of things.

Actually this has been a timely book in my life. Things have been absolutely crazy and I feel like everything is out of control at times- but this book has gently reminded me to get back to what I know and what is so important to a Christian’s successful spiritual life- if I let God do all the work and help make my decisions, if I rest in Him and let Him “worry” about what is going to happen, I will be a much happier person.

Here’s the best quote for me,

“Live life trusting in God that His plan is a perfect plan and He’ll make it work out right in the end. Faith is everything to God.”

Maybe you made a New Year’s Resolution and like me have already broken it. Maybe you need a reminder that God cares about you and your life. Maybe you want to make a fresh start and give God back the reigns to your life. What I know is that although this book does not have all the answers to life’s questions, it was very encouraging and uplifting to me and I can’t wait to pass it on to other people to give them that “shot in the arm” they need to get their relationship with God where it ought to be.
