And so this book........
I finished this book and found it to be very good and thought provoking. If you desire to live a more simple life,near to God,desiring to put others before yourself,following Christ example of kinship,not of this world ,but of his kingdom,than I suggest you read it for yourself. I am not Amish and suspect I never will be,but I do see myself as living "Almost Amish".
Many things Nancy shares in her book,I find I have already been led to follow in my own life. I know this is going somewhere special for me and I am taking it all in,one day at a time. I am not seeking acceptance from anyone,but God! I only want to please him. In no way do I claim to know anything,other than what his Holy Spirit is revealing to me. Its not what I am learning from man,but how God is opening my understanding while reading his word.
We have power to live as over comers...we are in the world,but not of the world. We were commanded to come out and be separate. Does that mean becoming Amish? No! But still they can teach us much about how to do that. I feel we are living in the last days and God is calling many to come away,to draw nigh to him. To return to the old paths! Where in is the good way! Jeremiah 6:16
And we should glorify him in our daily living....doing unto others as we would have them do unto us. Helping when it is in our means to do so. Especially those of the household of faith! Even little things in word or deed can be huge in a true time of need.
