I finally finished the book, The Shack, tonight. I know, it took me forever it seems. But with life, moving and my other studies, I had to put it down for a bit. But I am so glad I picked it back up. I highly recommend it. It's amazing, wonderful and unbelievable. I don't usually read fiction, especially Christian fiction. I've always thought to learn about God I need to read non-fiction, you know, real stories, real life, etc. But I am so glad I read this book. I feel like I've learned so much about God in this story compared to the other non-fiction books I've read in a long time. Except for the Bible of course. It has truly touched my life and given me a 'magnificent glimpse into the nature of God.' Even if you aren't a believer or a Christian, it's a thrilling story that you will not want to put down. If you don't believe me, believe this. It is a New York Times best seller and has sold 5.5 million copies!
That being said, I want to quote a part of the book here. I love how God works. He always meets me where I am, telling me what I need to hear, over and over again. He loves us that much. I hear you God, but I need your help.
"All I want from you is to trust me with what little you can, and grow in loving people around you with the same love I share with you. It's not your job to change them, or convince them. You are free to love without an agenda."
