To say I’m just a tad bit excited about the official release of Unsinkable Faith: God-Filled Strategies for Transforming the Way You Think, Feel and Live, would be an understatement! Book launch days are so fun! (picture me dancing around my living room with squeals and getting on my kid’s nerves!)
But I must confess, that as expected and as per the norm, along with my excitement and joy comes a teensy bit of anxiety and nervous anticipation. Anytime we share the raw realness of our lives, the deepest hurts in our hearts, the private thoughts we struggle with mentally or emotionally, and/or the lessons we have learned from God during difficult seasons of life, it makes us feel vulnerable and worried. We often think … What will people think when they know my real struggles? Might someone’s opinion of me negatively change when they learn I’m not a perfect Christian? Will people judge harshly when they don’t know all the details of difficult decisions I’ve made or problems I’ve faced? What if nobody wants to read/hear the words I’ve written/spoken? Will they still like me?
I bet there have been times when you’ve mentally entertained similar questions and feelings too, because whether we’re exposing the real us and the experiences of our lives through the form of a published book or simply in a private conversation with a friend, the enemy always tries to wiggle his way into our sub conscious and fill our minds with negative, worry-inducing, paralyzing thoughts. Thoughts that shake our confidence, tempt us to keep our mouths shut about our mistakes or all God has done in our life, and sometimes even threaten to sink our faith.
I’ll admit that over the past month as people began to purchase and read Unsinkable Faith, I found myself starting to feel mentally bogged down by some of those negative, stress-inducing types of thoughts, just as I’ve done when my other books released. But the difference this time around, is that I am now so hyper aware of the mental tactics the enemy will stoop to in order to tear down our peace and joy (which comes as a result of writing a whole book about the power of our thoughts!) that I have been asking God every day to fill my heart with unsinkable faith, confidence, peace and joy, and to wipe out the sneaky temptations to think or feel negativity. And you know what?! He has!
Rather than focusing on anything even the slightest bit negative, I have been intentionally choosing to focus on how God has changed my heart, faith and life over the past year in writing Unsinkable Faith. I am instead steering all my attention and energy into how excited I am for other people to possibly experience this same heart, mind and life transformation I’ve experienced, as a result of reading the words God led me to write out of the experiences He has tenderly yet firmly led me through.
So friends, I so hope you will consider picking up a copy of Unsinkable Faith from any major retail store or any online book retailer, including Proverbs 31 Ministries, where we greatly appreciate your donation to our ministry with the purchase of your book!
But take my word on this … I promise I don’t want you to purchase the book just so I can get more book sales, because that is not my heart and certainly not the reason I wrote this message. Rather, I am just so passionate about this new message and how God has opened my eyes to see and learn that I am in charge of my thoughts and my happiness, despite the circumstances around me, that I am praying this book gets in the hands of everyone who longs to experience a similar radical life make-over transformation.
I know that every person reading this post has something going on in their life right now that is stealing their joy and robbing them of peace, so my most earnest prayer above all else is for God to use this book to help others see and learn that they have the power to reclaim their peace and joy, even if they have no control over the difficult circumstances they’re facing today.
