Have you ever wrestled in your faith, or struggled with doubt or unbelief? I have. I thought I was the only one, but I was wrong — there are many of us. Thankfully, God’s faithfulness is greater than our questions. His grace is SO amazing, He even has a plan for our doubt. God is for us in our wandering. He’s working all things together for good. God’s word tells us who we are. . . and Whose we are.
Sometimes wandering IS the path that leads you back to God.
– Robin Dance, author of For All Who Wander: Why Knowing God is Better Than Knowing it All
We’ve been hearing about the ways our new book, For All Who Wander, by (in)courage writer Robin Dance, has been impacting the hearts of women everywhere, and we can’t get enough of them. So today, we’re highlighting a few stories from our community! Read on for the ways this book has touched their hearts.
I knew I was going to love this book for many reasons, but I just had no idea how it would truly speak straight to my heart. It was as if Robin and I were sitting with our cup of coffee, and as she spoke through each chapter, she addressed every detail of my life. The ability to do this for me and for each reader is the gift God has given her. Each chapter felt like a conversation because as she ‘spoke’, I was responding with nods, tears, and sometimes even words like the pages could hear me. I tried to savor each page and not rush, but I just couldn’t put it down. Even stories I had heard before had me hanging onto every sentence. Thank you, Robin, for the time, love, and energy you invested to give all of us the freedom to wander and for reminding us that God is for us in our wandering as He works all things together for His good!!
Chapter Four, “Testimony Envy,” gave me some much needed perspective. Thank you for writing this chapter! I am surrounded by people who grew up in church who all share a similar experience as yours. I, on the other hand, have a polar opposite experience, and my testimony falls somewhere along the lines of ‘those who have been saved from much, love much’. (See Luke 7:47) Whenever I share with lifelong church goers parts of my testimony, I feel like they have a hard time relating, and the enemy uses it to make me feel envious of them and their personal upbringing. I can now see that He uses both sides to shift our focus from God to ourselves, our circumstance etc. This chapter was very eye-opening for me and my personal feelings about both sides/types of testimonies have shifted to what I believe is a healthier outlook. Anytime we take our eyes off of God, we risk the danger of allowing the enemy to deceive us. Loving this book!
I am so loving the Journey Guide that goes with the book! The readings and prayers are so perfectly paired with the book. My favorite part though is the resolve section that offers actionable steps to help you apply or remember.
Really appreciated chapter 8 about mountains and valleys, especially the last paragraph: ‘Take heart, Wanderer: mountains and valleys come and go. Where you are today is not where you’ll be forever. Sometimes you need someone to remind you of that.’ Thank God, and Amen.
All I can say is WOW! As I read the words, many times it was like someone was writing the words I was thinking in my head! Robin, I am loving this book.
