There Is More: When the World Says You Can’t, God Says You Can by Brian Houston (review by Cathy)

There Is More

Book Blurb:

Founder and Global Senior Pastor of Hillsong Church shows how, with God’s power, you can believe and achieve a life that exceeds every earthly expectation. When you surrender control and follow God’s guidance, you become empowered and equipped to do the impossible, reach higher, and go further than you could have ever imagined–giving Him all the glory.

By building our lives around godly principles, surrounding ourselves with wisdom, and living for a cause greater than ourselves, we can effectively live out God’s purposes and have an enduring impact. As Brian Houston has personally discovered, when we depend on Jesus as the source for our identity, our lives can be a lasting legacy that maximize the gifts He has given each of us as unique individuals. There is More is for anyone who wants to be challenged to live with expectancy. Ephesians 3 is a call to release the immeasurable potential within you and the exceeding, abundant, and above plans and purposes of a Holy God that are beyond your greatest imagination.


My thoughts:

An inspirational book with 14 chapters that can be read at your leisure, which is what I did.  I found by doing that, it gave me time to reflect on each one.

In sharing his own story of watching God exceed his every expectation in his life, the author offers guidance to others.  I enjoyed reading his point of view and think that others may, too.  My husband will be reading this book now that I have finished and I look forward to our discussions.

This isn’t about gaining material things, its much more than that.  It’s about leaning to trust God in all aspects of your life.  To be honest, I read mostly fiction and yet when I saw this book, it felt like I needed to read and I’m glad that I did.
