mothers (who still might be dealing with the aftermath of their own
boy-crazy tendencies). Paula candidly walks you through her bumpy
journey for love and exposes the lies that we too often believe…regarding our worth. This book is like a cherished letter from your big
sis; lovingly and vulnerably sharing her diary with you, in order to
help you avoid similar heartbreak, “When [we] tried to force our fairy tales, we were acting more like orphans than adopted daughters of God (see Romans 8:14-17). We mistakenly thought we had to fend for ourselves. Can you believe it- princesses of the King acting like poor beggars?” This
spoke straight to my heart, as God often reveals that I act like
an orphan…protecting myself, worrying about my needs, putting up
walls, forgetting His promises; when in reality I am adopted by the King
and privy to all the love, forgiveness and benefits of His Kingdom (see
1 John 3, Galatians 4, Psalm 103).
also unpacks the important difference between counterfeit and real
repentance. How often do we cry over the consequences of our sin but
not over the fact that we have sinned against God and have grieved the
Holy Spirit? Paula’s book is an invitation to get off the insecurity train and climb aboard the ocean liner of God’s love.
Let His truth and freedom wash over you as He turns back the pages of
your heart with this little sparkling gem of a book; it just might make
all the difference.
