Digging for Pearls of Wisdom

I love it when a plan comes together. But I also love a good paradox. I'm practically salivating at the thought of what I am going to be reading next: two books which, from the outset, seem almost diametrically opposed in thought, practice and attitude. And these two books come from two different Christian Publishers.

I'm not sure which book will get here first: Fasting: Opening the Door to a Deeper, More Intimate, More Powerful Relationship with God by Jentezen Franklin, or Think and Make it Happen :The Breakthrough Program for Conquering Anxiety, Overcoming Negative Thoughts, and Discovering Your True Potential by Dr. Augusto Cury.

One book seems to be about approaching God on an empty stomach, weak, with a seeking heart; and the other book seems to be about the power of our mind and how it is a gift to us from God- not a curse. But you see, that's what it looks like these books are about. I won't know till I open up the books and dig in. It will be a noble digging, of that I'm sure.

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
Prov.25:2

Hello there-
I found your site via http://topblogarea.com. Just wanted to say a quick hello. I am also from NY. The Fasting book should be great - great author. I visited his church once in GA.

Blessings

Hey There! I've read a book by Jentezen Franklin regarding fasting before...not sure if it's the exact same one or not, but I really enjoy him
