A GIRL WHO READS.
books are my favorite to pair with coffee. not only they give me this piqued feeling everytime i finish a chapter, but reading also enhance my english vocabulary. i’d go shopping for clothes but not forget to visit kinokuniya and borders. i scream on the inside whenever i find the book that i want. the feels are real, for sure.
with that, i’m going to share with you my favorite inspirational books of all time (and my favorite part). aside from the bible, few of these books share life-changing stories and tear-jerking messages from God that you don’t wanna miss out. hopefully, this post inspires you to read and choose a book that’s worth your time, money, and heart. :)
UNSTOPPABLE | NICK VUJICIC
The meaning of surrender. “The way i view it, surrender means giving to the Lord the things that you hold most dear. It means not holding on tightly to your idea of what will bring you happiness but trusting that He knows even better than you know the desires of your heart; and that He will give you a fulfilled life even if it is not in the way that you envisioned."
THE CONFIDENT WOMAN | JOYCE MEYER
“We are never to be independent from God. As i have said repeatedly, we cannot do anything properly without Him and should be dependent on God at all times for all things."
RICH FOR LIFE | DENNIS SY
2 Corinthians 9:11 “You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God."
Sometimes the money i receive from others are not really for me but for someone else.
STRENGTH FINDER 2.0 | TOM RATH
This book is a study of individual strengths and talent. Attached to it is a code to take Gallup’s online assessment where set of questions are asked to be able to identify your strength. There will be 5 strengths given related to your answers, and my top 1 is COMMUNICATION.
WHEN GOD WRITES YOUR LOVE STORY | ERIC AND LESLIE LUDY
“Another unstable factor is the element of physical beauty. beauty inevitably fades with time... this used to worry me when i contemplated marriage. if the gushy stuff comes and goes, and physical beauty fades with time, how do i know our love will last?"
SIMPLIFY | BILL HYBELS
Your life won’t simplify itself. You must act.
“And despite his circumstances, most mornings he was able to usher a deep sense of God’s peace into his day. he didn’t allow his impending mortality to be a peace buster in his life."
Knowing God is in control of the situation, you get to say “I choose peace because i have a big God."
these books are worth reading and spending time. i suggest you guys read it, may it be online .pdf or a physical book itself. always motivate yourself to grow and attach yourself to the things you will learn from, keep your faith strong, and make you look forward to live life.
in addition (not related to the genre of books above), i also want to share these 2 books i’ve been reading over and over and over again.
LOVE & MISADVENTURES AND LULLABIES | LANG LEAV
“there are certain quality to words that- when strung in a certain way- has an almost hypnotic effect. pieces that will sing to your present, others may echo of your past, and the rest could whisper of your future.” - Lang
so i hope you guys enjoyed this post and fall in love with life more and more. if you got any books to recommend, feel free to share some love and comment below as i’m interested to read a new book everyday. I love you all, and God Bless!
