book review: empty promises by pete wilson

empty promisesDescription:

We all long for more of something in our lives. In our endless pursuit to feel worth and acceptance we find ourselves sacrificing everything for the promise to be a little more beautiful, a little richer, a little more powerful and successful, a little more loved.

How do we break free from these empty pursuits and start chasing the only Promise that will ever satisfy? How do we uncover the hidden idols that are driving us and turn our devotion toward the one true God?

Join Pastor and best-selling author Pete Wilson in discovering the joy and freedom that comes with seeking after God with your whole life. Learn how to replace, and not just relinquish, life’s empty promises by turning your focus and worship toward Him. It is the only thing that will set you absolutely free from the endless pursuit of everything else.

My review:

To be honest, I started reading this book a long, long time ago. Like six months ago. Right away, I was blown away by the truths that hit him: what was I idolizing in place of God? Sometimes it is appearances, money, accomplishments…

This book hit home. But I ended up misplacing the book (AKA my Kindle) and didn’t end up picking up the reader machine for another few months.

The second time I picked up “Empty Promises” was after Christmas. This was the time I truly needed this book. Wilson changed my perspective on prayer and communicating with God {Why do we have to close our eyes and bow our heads? Now, I pray all. day. long. It’s just a constant conversation: me & God.}

If you need a readjustment of your worldly and Godly perspective, check out Empty Promises. Take the time to digest the book and examine your heart. You won’t regret it.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this e-book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

    Sounds like it’s worth reading. I love that fact that we get to have an ongoing moment by moment dialogue with God all day everyday.
