Christians today find their faith challenged amidst changing societal mores and political views. The question we face is how can we maintain our right to uphold what is Biblically true and live it daily? The only way is to stand bold and firm in the Word to keep a strong focus upon Jesus Christ. We can’t do that without prioritizing time to study God’s Word so that it will become a working part of our lives. However, there are many times when we’re not sure what scripture or teaching we should apply to difficult situations and decisions we make daily. While Bible studies are crucial to our consistent Christian growth, believers need to find Christian resources that can bring more clarity to the scriptures.
Recently I read an extraordinary source of Biblical wisdom and encouragement. It’s titled Reflections For A Thirsty Soul by Yaa Foda Attobrah. It’s a breath of fresh air that lightens the soul with God’s Word while revealing those hidden areas of our lives that we haven’t yet turned over to God. Yaa gives answers to many of the difficult problems everyone faces as well as problems specific to Christians with a scriptural path to follow for success. This is especially important for new Christians because Roman’s 12:2 says that we must renew our minds with the Word of God to know God’s will. Therefore, I see the book as an important guide for Christian transformation.
Yaa’s writing is brilliant and engaging. I’ve never met her, but I felt as if she was sharing God’s Word and her Christian life experiences with me as a friend. She lovingly pushes her readers with a firm but gentle touch to reach for their personal and spiritual best with encouragement that made me examine my personal and spiritual goals. She has a gift for making the Word come alive through her messages of strength, courage and faith, that for me, brought greater meaning to some of my favorite scriptures.
I’d also like to share that parts of Yaa’s book are fun to read. She writes with an upbeat style that kept my interest throughout. I greatly recommend Reflections For A Thirsty Soul to all Christians no matter what their level of inner growth. It’s packed with Biblical wisdom that demonstrate how the journey of following Christ is never a burden, but an exciting adventure.
