Whisper of Rest – 40 Days of God’s Love to Revitalize Your Soul by Bonnie Gray is one of the books I am currently reading.

Divided into six parts this book by Bonnie brings you on a 40 day journey through learning about yourself and how you stand with GOD.

Each day she brings you through her own personal experience with GOD. She recounts what she has done and how GOD has touched her life.

The book is divided into a few parts

Part one – Being the beloved

Part two- Choosing at the beloved

Part three- Dreaming as the beloved

Part four- Healing as the beloved

Part five- Daring as the beloved

Part six- Shining as the beloved

Starting off from Day 1  Bonnie shares with the readers how to focus on breathing and being still. To eject yourself from the busyness of life and focus on GOD.

Each day starts with a bible verse, quotation, a experience (story) another bible verse then explanations on how to go about to achieve rest.  There are also mediation techniques interwoven into the daily ritual to help calm ones emotions and help them focus.

There are sections within each day where reflective questions are thrown to the reader and they are encourage to pen down their thoughts in a journal.

I find doing this exercise very therapeutic.

My thoughts 

I was on Bonnie’s 21 day challenge which she conducted on her facebook fan page . It was  a very interesting journey together with the other ladies on the challenge as we shared our perceptions of being Still and breathing again spiritually.

I have been feeling very spiritually jaded  and in need of a spiritual detox. I have been looking for a booster in this area of my life.

Having come from a Catholic background I have always questioned why I feel so spiritually lacking even though I was in Sunday school  and attended service regularly. I came to realize that the community I was in wasn’t serving my needs as a Christian and I started searching directly in the bible for what I needed.

Reading through Bonnie’s book gave me a clearer perspective on  what I am seeking within my spirituality life.  It gave me the space to slow down and think what I really want in my walk with GOD.

It also gave me a deeper understanding about my current feelings and thoughts on spirituality.

Do pick up a copy of her book as it’s being launch in the bookstores this week.

  1. There are a lot of inspirational books now available in the market. It is good to help us reflect more on our inner self. Thanks for sharing one of them.

  2. It’s always great to be reminded by God’s word! And to read testimonials from other people whose lives have been blessed by God is another thing. I am praying that through His words, I’ll also be renewed daily.

  3. I find the content inspiring. As you explain each chapter, seems like this book is an easy read and will not drag me to boredom. Plus of course, it looks not so preachy. It’s what I like best in inspirational books.

  4. My favorite book is Beth Redman’s God knows my name: Never forgotten, forever loved. I think that your book tackles the same topic of focusing on God and his voice and on healing as well. I’ll be interested to read this one and do the 21 day challenge as well.

  5. Sounds like a great book to read! With 4 kids, a husband and a household to manage, life can oftentimes be super hectic for me. I’d love to learn how to be still and discover myself more as well as develop a more meaningful relationship with God.

  6. This honestly sounds like a really lovely book, something you will treasure. It spoke to me because my days are full and I hardly have 15-20 minutes to dedicate to God. Most of the time, it’s a hurried prayer and devotional reading. I should change this!
