Quotes from God's Girl

I'm reading the book God's Girl by Hayley DiMarco. I also am reading the companion devotional guide by the same author. I am amazed by the insight and extreme clarity this gal writes with....she is my hero.

This book is really written for younger women who might be on the verge of adulthood, college age, maybe beginning their career. I had originally picked it up when I was looking at doing a Bible study with the teen girls, but now I am just reading it because. And now is definitly the best time for me to be reading it....because now I am ready to receive what God has for me. Before, I don't think I was ready.

Here are a few quotes from the book:

When Christians love only the people who love them, they don't prove anything to anyone about who God is.

Obsess only about one thing, your relationship with God, and then everything else will fall into place.

If you want more of God then learn more about Jesus.

Worry calls God a liar.

As long as you are looking for approval in the eyes of another human being, you are going to be completely distracted from God.

Troubled relationships start with a lack of humility.

I could truly go on and on and on. She has a way of saying things that knocks you square in the eyes and sets you straight. I'm pretty sure the Holy Spirit is also involved.

Anyway....I'm in love with this book and highly recommend you go straight to right now and buy it.,
