Finding Faith in a City Care Forgot - Christian Book Review



Finding Faith in a City Care Forgot
Written by Teena Myers

You can purchase this book at Amazon for $13.25.

Do you ever wonder if God is present in our lives? Does He
do all He can do for you? Does He intervene ?

First let me say that God is so good. I really enjoyed this book!
Each Chapter is a new story a snapshot of a life so precious.
God has moved them and used them to do something amazing. Some-
times He just plainly shows them the truth. God is ever present today.
There are so many stories in this world that you won't ever hear. He
does them in the quiet of the day with just a breath.

This book could become a wonderful gift for a friend or loved one.
If you took one story and read it per day you would be encouraged that
not only is God real but he is present ;working in our lives.

One of my favorites was a story close to the beginning
about a Pastor named Bil Shanks. Bill watches a documentary about
abortion that launches the pro life movement. The movement deeply
changed his life. "When asked Who will speak for the unborn." Bill
raises his hand. 
Bill steps outside of himself and takes steps to do
some amazing things. I could just see God leading Him. You will have
To read the book though to find out all he accomplishes.

Another favorite came from the Chapter Treasure in cell #7
Donald Eskine shares his story. He is abandoned by his family and is
particularly hurt by his fathers actions. This leads to him pushing his feeling
aside so that he doesn't have to feel them but God moves.
I know just how he was feeling. I know just what it feels like to have
that empty whole where an earthy father should have been. I was lucky enough to
have a step father come into my life who could fill that position. I love how I 
could personally relate my own life to some of the life stories presented.
 Donald shares this verse that really sat with me.

My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands
within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to
Understanding and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for
understanding and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for
hidden treasure,  then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find
the knowledge of God.
Proverbs 2:1-5
God came in many forms as this book was written. I could feel his presence
as I read sometimes it wasn't the whole story that hit my heart but
just  a word or phase that set my heart toward God that day
as I read ....

From The Chapter a Ray of Hope Melena states "From this point
forward, I give my life to you. I don't need my free will . I need your will."
My overall favorite was Engulfed in Fire . Wade Moody grows up
in a normal home environment. His religious background is splotchy at best.
He is searching for more but begins to look in all the wrong places. He
becomes involved in gang violence and uses good to hide the evil things
that are going on. One day Wade hears... "God seldom speaks to our ears.
He speaks directly to our heart, and I heard his voice clearly that day."
God moves so strongly in Wades life that not only does he turn Wade
around but uses Wade to turn others toward him as well. This story brought
tears to my eyes. A very strong testament to Gods power.

There is so much going on here. God is a part of our lives and we are
important to Him. I would strongly suggest this book. The only issue
I had with it was that it was so hard to read more than one persons
story in a day. I would get so involved in a life story that I'd want to sit
with it and pray about how that could affect my own life which isn't
really an issue at all unless your a reviewer. (smile)
