A Cause to be Thankful Book Review

A Cause to be Thankful is a bible study from the "Destined to Live, Despite Me" Series written by suicide survivor, Yolanda Shanks.


"By the time you have completed this book, we will have covered the principles of demonstrating and communicating thankfulness to God for who He is and for all He has done and is doing in our lives, which I pray will spill over into how we treat others."



This study on being thankful differs from others because it is built around the 10 lepers.

"So here we have an awesome example left on record for us oft the importance of remaining obedient to God despite our conditions or circumstances.  Oh how sweet the Word of God is!"
"Oh if only we would, like this one leper, recognize our blessed gifts from God, there is no doubt that we too would move in such a manner of urgency to render thanks to Him."
There are pauses for praise, prayer and the Gospel itself interspersed throughout the study.

My thoughts:
There's A LOT packed into 7 Chapters!  Though I do not doubt the author's heart and passion to follow the Lord, I didn't really enjoy this study.  I spent a lot of time re-reading sections trying to understand the focus in order to relate it to my own life.  Since I was so touched by the author's life story, I sincerely believe this study deserves another going through!
