Gifts from Heaven

     BOOK REVIEW:  No prayer is too big for God.   Sometimes it doesn't feel like God is listening to our prayers. But now and then He powerfully reminds us that He hears our requests and is strong enough to help. What begins as simple faith ends with an astounding gift from our loving heavenly Father.
    These true, uplifting stories are from ordinary people experiencing extraordinary help in times of need. While some answers to prayer feel ordinary and go unnoticed, this collection highlights amazing events that could only happen with God's supernatural intervention. With accounts of such things as unexplainable healing and miraculous protection in terrifying situations, this book will inspire you to believed that God can answer even your most "impossible" prayers.
     Let these stories touch your heart, strengthen your faith, and encourage you to pray more than ever before.

     MY REVIEW:  I blondly chose this book without really realizing what it was. Oh, I knew it was about prayer, but I didn't know it was a collection of true stories of answered prayers. Books like this usually take me 2-4 days to read--I had this one done in 24 hours. :) I really really liked it!
     I agree, it can seem like God isn't hearing my prayers, but after reading all these stories of amazing answers to prayer (and amazing faith in God to answer prayers) I was reassured. I have to remember that God's time is different than mine, and He knows best. Just becuase I think I needs answered now doesnt' mean it's the best time. Wouldn't it be nice if we could see the whole picture? But then, why would we need to rely on God if we already knew everything?
     James Stuart Bell has compiled other books like this, such as Angels, Miracles, and Heavenly Encounters, Heaven Touching Earth, and Encountering Jesus. I would recommend getting ahold of any (or all) of his books.

 I received a copy of this book from BETHANY HOUSE PUBLISHERS in exchange for my honest review.
