Living With Confidence in a Chaotic World


I am in the process of trying to get off one of my medications that I was taking for pain, Lyrica, and one of the big benefits of taking it is that it really helps me sleep. I have been on a lower dose to wean off of it, but am now trying to go without it, and sleep eludes me, even though I take Tylenol PM. So last night, I was up about 3 AM and I read some of Dr. David Jeremiah's new book, Living in Confidence in a Chaotic World. I finished his other book, What in the World is Going On? a few days ago, and I must say, it is a must read. This new book is such an encouragement, and as I read each chapter I gain more and more insight. Chapter 4, Staying Challenged, was particularly encouraging, as it is about diligence, and I found the section on The Priorities of Diligence to be a very good list of seven traits to build on the foundation of faith God has given us. As I was reading last night, I wanted to jump up and tell you all about it, but I figured blogging at that hour wasn't going to be conducive to sleep.

Let me know if you have read the book and what you think, and, since I am having some sleeplessness, leave me a comment or send me an email on how I can be praying for you during the "wee hours of night" or anytime of day.

Hi,

Thank you for your review of Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World! I work with Thomas Nelson, and I enjoyed reading your thoughts on Dr. Jeremiah’s book. Since you enjoyed Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World, I wanted to see if you would be interested in reviewing a completely revised and updated version of a Billy Graham prophecy classic – Storm Warning. Thomas Nelson just rereleased this book, and it has already hit the New York Times best-seller list.

If you are interested, please contact me with your mailing address, and I will get the book out to you!

Thanks!
