When was the last time you paused and assessed your emotional and spiritual state? While many of us lack the time to do this during the normal course of our lives, most of us had more time than we ever could have anticipated during the past year or so, when the world shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
During this time, many people realized that their lives weren’t going the way they envisioned they would be and began to think about the changes they needed to make. Others realized how exhausting and unfulfilled their everyday routines left them and determined that they would like to make some course corrections, if only they could find a way.
If you’ve ever felt like you’ve done everything you’re supposed to in life, yet your life has somehow drifted off course, you’ll be reassured to know that you’re not the only one who feels that way. In her new book How Did I Get Here? Finding Your Way Back To God When Everything Is Pulling You Away, bestselling author, speaker and activist Christine Caine helps you to find a way forward in your life when you’ve run out of energy, vision and passion.
In How Did I Get Here?, Christine shares deeply personal stories, scriptural insights and an eye-opening admonition to “pay much closer attention to what aw have heard, lest we drift away from it” (Hebrews 2:3-4 ESV) so that we do now lose our faith in the midst of difficult circumstances. She encourages us to stop drifting and start thriving as we place our anchor on our unchanging, trustworthy God.
I’ve always found Christine’s work compelling (check out my reviews of Unashamed and Unshakeable) but I found this book particular timely, personal and life-giving. Here’s one of my favorite quotes from her book:
With each wound God has taught me to forgive move and more – another essential step toward healing. To extend mercy and grace. To become gracious. To those who I didn’t think deserved it. To those who most likely would never even ask for forgiveness.
If you’re feeling off keel as you re-adjust to the “new normal” and are wondering How Did I Get Here?, be sure to pick up a copy of Christine’s book. I’m sure you’ll find it as worthy a read as I have.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
