Catherine defines flourishing as discovering and becoming exactly who God wants us to be, and then use our lives to help others, do good and know and trust God. While the book didn't necessarily break me into a vibrant sweat of activity, it did heighten my awareness of Gods love for me and reawaken my gratefulness for His mercy and love. Ít challenged me to be me - as God created me - and love others in creative ways that might make a difference in their lives.
Maybe you might find this book good and encouraging, and maybe you will embrace tranquility. I end with the Bible verse that Catherine starts her book with:
Psalm 92:12-15 TLB The godly shall flourish like palm trees, and grow tall as the cedars of Lebabnon. For they are transplanted into the Lord's own garden, and are under his personal care. Even in old age they will still produce fruit and be vital and green. This honours the Lord, and exhibits his faithful care.
Hopefully I will meet you at Flourish in Sydney, July 27 & 28, 2012.
