If, like me, your understanding of how the Holy Spirit works in your life is a little fuzzy, no matter how long you’ve been a Christ-follower, then Don’t Miss Out: Daring to Believe Life Is Better with the Holy Spirit by Jeannie Cunnion may just be the book for you. Written in thirty relatively short chapters, Don’t Miss Out can be read one chapter a day for a month, or multiple chapters at one sitting.
Written in a personal, conversational style, Jeannie backs up her insights of the person of the Holy Spirit with Scripture. I found myself taking notes as I read to be sure I didn’t forget some important point she mentioned.
Here is a sample of what I wrote:
- There are no circumstances that can cause the Holy Spirit to leave you behind. He doesn’t give up on you when you give up on yourself.
- The Holy spirit is a skilled communicator. He knows what to say when we are at a loss for words or need words to speak into a difficult situation.
- Knowing the Spirit has a personality matters because we can’t have a relationship with a symbol. We can only have a relationship with a person, and that is precisely what we can have with the person of the Holy Spirit.
There is much more in the pages of Don’t Miss Out that speaks of the incredible benefits of the Holy Spirit’s presence in our life. I highly recommend it. This is one of those books which I will keep on my shelf and read often.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House for a fair and honest review, which is exactly what I gave.
Have you read this book? If so, what was your impression of it?
I wish you well.
