I work part-time in a job that started as a "Holiday Seasonal" position. I happen to work for a toy company and Christmas is the busiest time of the year. Working with customers day in and day out, I become a little jaded against people by this point in the year. Everyone wants something, I deal with lots of impatience and anger each day, and I have trouble finding the "Peace that Passes Understanding" and keeping compassion in my heart.
This book absolutely gob-smacked me. I was floored by revelation after revelation from the Holy Spirit of how God moves and works in us today. The book is written quite humbly by Max Davis and he shows us that each and every one of us can sometimes forget the depth of love that Jesus has for us in His heart. These are short chapters and I took to reading them as a sort of devotional. One each day to meditate on and hold me through until the next day. Something to focus on when I was dealing with angry people who were putting me in a position where I was about to not show the love of Christ.
I am loving this book and hope you will consider giving it a read. It is worth the time. I also have a copy to give away (see below). Have a very Merry Christmas and let Christ rule in your hearts all year round!
From the Publisher:
About the Book:When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette weaves heartwarming and miraculous stories of Jesus showing up in ordinary people, revealing that He knows us and is fully present in our everyday circumstances, especially in our difficulties. Those hurting and weary from worn-out religion are longing for a fresh touch from the living Jesus. Best-selling author Max Davis challenges us to do more than simply receive God’s grace—we need to allow grace to soften, change, and shape us. As you read this book you will laugh, cry, and come face-to- face with the living Jesus, much like Davis did, when he found Him living in a green-eyed brunette. As Davis puts it, “Jesus is very much alive today and still does incredible things—sometimes supernatural things—through us!”
