This is the second book that I read for this year. This particular book, tackles about renewal of the things for the betterment of people. It teaches us freedom from all the things that are evil and strengthen our faith with the lord.
Why did I choose to read this book?
The start of the year 2013 is a year for a new life, and for me to leave the past behind. I consider the year 2012 as “not my year”. It was a tough year for me. I trudge the life of unemployment and struggled to be employed again. It was also the time were my relationship with my ex-boyfriend becomes very shaky to the point that we need to say goodbye to save each other from further despair. It was a hard year because I only depend to no one but myself. I survived financially on my own with part time jobs and accessory making. I know my family would support me if I will ask them, but then I realized, I am on the age that I need to stand on my own without my family’s financial aid. For the whole year I was imprisoned with grief from my own failures. I worked hard to achieve my goal and landed on the job that can pay me 3x more than my previous salary as a Nurse. I felt that my burden lifted itself; however, I am still questioning myself about the relationships that I will have in the future. The questions are: Am I capable of loving? Is someone capable of loving me? I know the answer is YES. But due to some relationship failures, it makes me question my credibility. I was trapped in that perception, that I need an aid to get out and to be free.
As I was reading this book, realization sinks in. All negativity and question of faith vanished. I am not saying that all the help that I asked was all answered by this book. It would also depend on your perception of solving your problem, since self help books will only work if you believe that it can indeed help you. As far as I can remember it did helped me to see things in the new perspective. To realize that there is more to life than grief and sorrow, and the only help I need is for me to be FREE.
