    Fervent....just an excerpt

    I am reading Fervent by Priscilla Shirer and thought I would post an excerpt from it and you folks can decide if it's worth buying. This book is inspired by the movie War Room. So it's about prayer. Fervent prayer. Just some good food for thought.

    If I were your enemy I'd seek to dim your passion, dull your interest in spiritual things, dampen your belief in God's ability and His personal concern for your, and convince you that the hope you've lost is never coming back and was probably just a lie to begin with.

    .....Passion is what pushes the athlete to run one more lap, to crunch through one more set of reps. It's what silences those screaming thigh and stomach muscles, making them do what their owner demands of them, no matter how loudly they complain. Passion is what keeps a piano player anchored to the practice bench when no one else is around to notice the effort or give a pat on the back for approval. Passion is what inspires the eager young employee to out perform expectations, instead of just punching the clock to earn a paycheck like everybody else. ......It glows red hot. And grows even larger.

    that's why, if I were your enemy, I'd make stealing your passion one of my primary goals. Because I know if I could dim your passion, I could significantly lower your resistance to temptation and discouragement. I could make your walk with a spiritual limp and lengthen how long it takes you to recover from the injury. If I could ship away at your zeal, at your hope, at your belief in God and what He can do, I could chisel down your faith to a whimper.

    Chalk another one up to my "passion elimination plan the one with your name on it.

    Have a wonderful evening.
