So I was tagged a long time ago by the lovely lady who wears a Tiara.
In this running game, you pick up the book nearest to you and turn to page 56. Read down to the 5th sentence and copy it on your blog.
The nearest book to me is a book called Anxious for Nothing by John MacArthur.
My sister gave me this book ages ago.
Page 56, 5th sentence reads:
I mourn to see people stumbling around trying to fix their lives, to find some kind of solution, some kind of book or therapy that will solve their problems, but who find no deliverance.
Instead of experiencing the grace of God, they experience the correcting hand of God because they are proud. Peter's advice is, "Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time" (1 Peter 5:6).
I actually really like this excerpt because it's advice about finding help points straight to The Word.
Anyway, I wonder what other excerpts I'd get on page 56, 5th sentence from some of my other books?
I'm tagging 4 other ladies. (I've never done this before!)
Kismet at Kismet
Courtney at Storing up Treasures in Heaven
Amanda at A Thousand Words
Natalie at I AM (not)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
