Are you in search of a book that will help you grow in your faith and challenge you to see the obstacles and difficulties in your life as an opportunity to climb closer to God? “Made to Move Mountains: How God Uses our Dreams and Disasters to Accomplish the Impossible” is a beautiful, soul-wrenching book that was written by Kristen Welch and published by BakerBooks.
It is clear with every sentence that Kristen truly lives out the words of wisdom she shares with her readers – not perfectly, not always gracefully, and many times she wants to quit – but in the end, her faith sustains her. And she wants to help us grow in this kind of faith too. I adored her warm writing style, and each chapter was both an encouragement and a challenge to me. Did you know that mountains are mentioned more than 500 times in the Bible? I tend to think of mountains in my life as a punishment or as something to get past as quickly as possible, but this book helped me to realize that mountains are purposefully placed in our lives during a particular season and for a particular reason. And God always moves mountains when we ask Him to. No, it’s not always in the way we want or at the time we desire, but He is with us every step of every climb, urging us to let go and let Him help us.
There is sooooo much more in “Made to Move Mountains” that I would love to share with you, but I just encourage you to read it for yourself. It is packed to overflowing with wisdom and grace for everyone who feels as though she has a mountain before her that is just too big to ever scale. That’s the perfect place to be, because it is at times like this that God loves to show us exactly what He can do when we trust Him.
