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.
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.
