Sifted by Rick Lawrence
I had the privilege of reading Rick Lawrence’s book called Sifted. I thought it was going to be one of those books you have to read and get very little from but was extremely surprised. I am not a big reader and rarely connect with the author during a reading.
Not with Sifted… Rick did an awesome job of walking with the reader through a couple key stories from the bible and his personal life. He did a great job of stretching my mind and heart in how I think about challenges in my life.
I am well aware we have events and occurrences that happen and I say “what the heck did I do to deserve this?” and some additional complaining. Now, I admit to still having those emotions but my thought pattern now turns to thanking God for the opportunity to grow and be sifted (tested) through the trials and challenges in life. God spoke to Satan about his servant Job and have enough confidence in him to challenge the devil to sift him….
I would strongly encourage you to read the book and allow the book to minister to you and challenge you to be sifted for Jesus.
