Win From Within Finding Yourself by Facing Yourself by John W. Gray III Book Review




In Win From Within Finding Yourself, John Gray opened up about the painful truths he found out about himself when he lost everything. He was a successful pastor, was on TV, and was an author. On the outside of his life, everything looked okay. But in reality, his marriage was in serious trouble. His wife walked out on him and took his kids and moved back in with her parents. He was forced to relook at his life and face his childhood and how he was acting as a husband and father. Throughout the book, he looked at the story of Jacob and Esau. They were twin brothers and Jacob was always second. John Gray connected with how Jacob was always trying to be something he wasn’t. Jacob wanted to be first in everything. This is what led him into tricking his father into giving the firstborn son, Esau’s blessing. The firstborn son received double blessings. As we will see when John Gray digs into the whole story, many of us our like Jacob, we’re trying to figure out who we are and who we are in Christ. He also shared how Jacob was given a new name by God and how God redeemed him and still loved him despite his past. In the end of Jacob’s story, it told about how he won his race. 




I would this life changing book to anyone who is ready to face the truth of who they are. I enjoyed how detailed John Gray went into his own life and how he wasn’t afraid to share his struggles in his childhood and how this affected him still in his adulthood. I liked how he compared his story to Jacob’s and I recognized how my own life has similarities. We all have a past and we all struggle with finding out who we are and sometimes it’s extremely difficult to face the truth of who we are. We are all broken and we all have a past that is something hard to face. But we can find freedom, when we dive into God’s word and discover who we truly are, this can change us. If you’re looking for a book to help you face the truth about yourself, then read this book!

I love blogging when it is for or about something I believe in. I also read news blogs often and find that it makes me feel much more intelligent every time I read them. I also feel like I am a pretty good person who tries to treat others with respect, no matter what their view is. There are some real haters out there. Thanks again. I learned a few things about blogging. I will definitely put your site on my speed dial. mothers day status for facebook

 

Hello!



I'd love to connect and collaborate with you (somehow!)



My work outlines practical and creative ideas inspired by love in the quest for wellbeing.



In Fit for Joy, I wrote about the paradox of two realities that don’t match: physical health and mental chaos. The idea was to start a conversation about the “true” meaning of health.



As a podcast host, I am in search of meaningful truths, ideas, and insights about mental and spiritual health that can awaken new ways of thinking, leading us toward a new way of being — Being Well."
