The Set Apart Woman by Leslie Ludy
The Set-apart Woman: God's Invitation to Sacred Living.
If you want your life changed, then I recommend this book. Leslie takes you on a personal journey to becoming the woman God has created us to be. She is practical; she shares personal excerpts from her life and she challenges each and every woman to be sold out 100% for God, no exceptions, no excuses.
One of the things that hit me the most and that I am working on improving was the area of prayer time/personal time with God. Since our daughter was born, this had really fallen by the wayside, but she challenged me that there is not a time in our lives to let this all-important part slip to the side. We need that time with God to be able to face the day and I know she is right. I am working on doing better at making it a crucial part of my day. I have a long ways to go.
Leslie ends each chapter with a group study and discussion questions and verses to look up and also a personal reflection with some more verses and questions. It would be a perfect complement to your quiet time that would cause you to examine your life and dig deeper into becoming the woman God has made you to be.
What has become an idol in my life? Money, relationships? Am I more interested in being a humanitarian rather than changing the world for God first and meeting physical needs as a break out from that? Do I have the sacrificial love that God calls us to? Am I willing to step out of my comfort zone to do the work God has called me to? Am I even open to finding out what that work might be?
I hope I can be more God-conscious as a result of reading this book and being reminded once again of my need for God to have control over every area of my life.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to be changed and who wants to be 100% sold out for God. Prepare to have your thinking challenged and your mindset changed.
