January was a slow reading month. I ended up finishing up “Becoming” by Michelle Obama from my December reading list. It took me a bit longer to read because January was a pretty busy month for me. But wow, what a powerful read it was. I love the way the class of Mrs Obama just jumps off of the page. I’m not American, but she is truly missed as the FLOTUS.
I also read Gary Chapmans book “God Speaks Your Love Language: How to experience and express God’s Love “. This book is a very good resource for anybody who interested in learning about their “love language” in depth. It was a beautiful reminder that God truly speaks to each of us individual in a language that we understand. This book helps us identify how our love language relates to our relationship with God. This book left lots of room for self reflection which I find very important. If you are interested in picking up this book, I would encourage you to read the original ” Five Love Languages ” book or take the quiz to find out what your love language is.
Here is a synopsis:
Feel God’s love more personally.
Do you realize that the God of the universe speaks your love language, and your expressions of love for Him are shaped by your love language? Learn how you can give and receive God’s love through the five love languages: words of affirmation, quality time, gifts, acts of service, and physical touch.
In this revised and updated edition of The Love Languages of God,Gary writes, “As we respond to the love of God and begin to identify the variety of languages He uses to speak to us, we soon learn to speak those languages ourselves. Whatever love language you prefer, may you find ever deeper satisfaction in using that language in your relationship with God and with other people.”
As you begin to identify the variety of languages God uses to speak love to you and others, you can learn to speak lovingly back to God and to those around you. No matter what love language you prefer, you will become more deeply connected with God and watch this bond transform all of your relationships. ( Goodreads.com)
Other than that, I spent a lot a time reading and studying the word of God as my church was in a 21 day fast, my time on social media was super limited. I spent a lot of time in the gospels this month! I’ve drawn a particular affinity to the book of Luke 🙂
Check back this week to see what I’m reading in February!
Til next time..
