Book Review: As You Wish by Mercy Lokulutu
Finding True Strength In Surrender To God
Do you like it when, after you read a book where the author has shared enough of their heart and personal stories, that they feel like a new friend? This is one of those books.
This entire book is centered on surrender. In some ways it was challenging. In some ways it was encouraging. And throughout it all I found Ms. Lokulutu to be authentic and personable.
I also had to get out my highlighter as I found some gems inside. Here are a few of these gems.
“If you want to discover who you really are, you must first surrender to God.” (p. 6)
“The bottom line is this: either we surrender our body to God or to sin.” (p. 11)
“”God can do more in your reliance on Him than you can do in trying harder.” (p. 53)
“Surrender is not an absence of strength; it is humility in the presence of strength and the ultimate expression of strength under control.” (p. 107)
“The alternative to surrender is not completer freedom; it is slavery to something or someone else.” (p. 159)
The author included quite a bit on the how-to of surrender. She did not merely go over the reasons why we need to. The examples and clarity were much appreciated. She also makes it clear that this is not a one-time thing but rather an ongoing thing.
Are you in need of a fresh surrender to God? Has it been quite some time since you made a clear point of surrendering to God? Have you never really totally surrendered to God? If you answered yes to these questions or you aren’t sure, then this book is for you!!
