“Settling is not your destiny…” With a tag-line like that, how could I not read this book? Having been on my own personal journey of discovering what it means to have the fullness of life Jesus talks about in John 10 the last couple of years, the title of Sharon Jaynes’ latest book grabbed my attention. In it, Sharon invites the reader to tread deeper in faith, to live boldly for Jesus and take hold His promises by letting go of the insecurities, fears, unforgiveness, comparisons and a number of other worldly things that hold His precious children back. Take Hold opened my eyes to a few things I hadn’t considered before and challenged my own perceptions of the events of my own testimony by looking through Sharon’s eyes and her own life experiences. Because of the truth sprinkled throughout this book, I’ve chosen to give God access to those very areas that I’m afraid of and let Him do with them what He will…it is for my own benefit. While not an easy ready (Sharon goes deep), I definitely recommend reading this book. If you’re looking to dig a little deeper and apply these truths to your life, there is a Bible study in the back of the book.
This book was part of a launch team package issued by the publisher.
