Too Loved to Be Lost : Discovering God's Intentional, Unconditional, Without-Limits Love
Author: Debora M. Coty
In Too Loved to Be Lost, you'll find simple, practical steps for healing, refreshment, and revitalization of spirit, body, and faith. Whether you're struggling with issues related to trust, depression, patience, relationships, hurts, or hopes. . .this humor-filled volume will deliver a much-needed smile and equip you with simple-to-implement tips for attaining the kind of guidance and belonging you cravethe kind that can only be found in the unconditional love of Papa God.
...With topics that touch everyday challenges, Coty uses Scripture, stories, and her own unique humor as well as her "GPS" (God-Powered Satellite) to guide readers closer to God. She really hit home when she got to "Jiggle the Thingie and Keep on Cranking (Spending Time in Papa God's Waiting Room." Her thoughts are targeted and her insights are full of pithy quotes that can stop readers in their tracks, such as saying women need to "give our constipated calendars an activities enema." Or that some folks have the "guilt-you gift." My personal favorite? "The Holy Spirit is a dove, not a woodpecker." My only question is, "Where can I find some more of her books?"
Through personal stories and anecdotes, Coty permeates this book with encouragement. Whether you need to know you are cherished by God, need to overcome depression, or have hidden hurts that need healing, you'll find encouragement in this book.
Sometimes her stories are laugh out loud funny. Sometimes they are so serious you'll want to weep. But each one has an encouraging lesson that comes through loud and clear. She shows how God is the lifter of your head, how to get Scripture to reside in your brain, how to recognize everyday mini-miracles, and how to BARF when things go bad (you've got to read the book). She deals with brokenness, discernment, burnout, control, getting refreshed, and much more. She adds questions at the end of each chapter that are great for reflection or discussion within a trusted group.
Coty has a way with words. I mean, have you ever measured yourself on the grumplitude barometer? And, “Forgiveness is like losing weight.” (You've got to read the book.) She is great at wrapping nuggets of truth in the gift-wrap of humor.
If you need to insert some joy into your life, this book is for you. If you need to be reminded of the relentless love of God toward you, this book is for you. If you feel lost in the mess of your life, this book is for you.
