“And God saw that it was good…”
Look out over the world today, it seems a far cry from God's original declaration. Pain, conflict, and uncertainty dominate the headlines. Our daily lives are noisy and chaotic—filled with too much information and too little wisdom. No wonder we often find it easier to retreat into safe spaces, hunker down in likeminded tribes, and just do our best to survive life.
But what if God wants you to do more than simply survive? What if he wants you to thrive in this world, and be part of its redemption? What if you could rediscover the beauty and goodness God established in the beginning?
By learning the lost art of discernment, you can. Discernment is more than simply avoiding bad things; discernment actually frees you to navigate the world with confidence and joy by teaching you how to recognize and choose good things. When you learn discernment and develop a taste for all that's good, you will encounter God in remarkable new ways. Come, discover the God who not only made all things, but who will also make all things good once again.
I just finished All That’s Good: Recovering the Lost Art of Discernment, by Hannah Anderson, and this book is in my Top Five for 2018. This book was excellent. Hannah challenges us to think about discernment in a completely different way than we often do. Hannah walks us through how we can not just avoid the bad but delight in the good by walking us through Scripture. I love how Hannah uses illustrations and stories to bring her points to life. I often feel that I could be sitting across the table from her as she shares her heart. I recommended this book if you like me have ever struggled with what discernment really means.
I was blessed to receive a copy via the publisher. All opinions are my own.
