    Can t stop, won t stopthis is how Pastor Idelman defines compel, which is mentioned in 2 Corinthians 5 14 Christ s love compels us This love inspires him to get up in the morning It is so gripping that I can t stop and I won t stop, even if I could It s like we are running the Boston Marathon and came to Heartbreak Hill, in mile 19, and yearn to persevere through till the end This book primarily focuses on Galatians emphasizing grace and avoiding self righteousness and Hebrews Can t stop, won t stopthis is how Pastor Idelman defines compel, which is mentioned in 2 Corinthians 5 14 Christ s love compels us This love inspires him to get up in the morning It is so gripping that I can t stop and I won t stop, even if I could It s like we are running the Boston Marathon and came to Heartbreak Hill, in mile 19, and yearn to persevere through till the end This book primarily focuses on Galatians emphasizing grace and avoiding self righteousness and Hebrews emphasizing hope for the weary and discouraged Idleman beautifully weaves stirring Scripture smoothly into the book, provides often perfect examples illustrations from the culture to make certain points, and injects a powerful punch of research from psychologists and other specialists.He deals with the influential weight in people s lives anxiety, religion, lies we believe, unbelief , and encourages the reader to continue moving forward, progressing, and maintaining or obtaining confidence despite our challenges What gets exposed is that IF our confidence comes in anything other than God, it will ultimately fail at some point and we ll be empty and broken Idleman emphasizes the importance of fixing our eyes on Jesus Hebrews 12 1 3 He shared a very encouraging story of how he helps those who are on their death beds as they prepare to leave this world He recommended Joni Eareckson s book Heaven, which sounds inspirational Then 1 Corinthians 2 9 is highlighted No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived, what God has prepared for those who love Him There s NOTHING like God His love is compelling us Don tGiveUp

    When I agreed to preview and help promote Kyle Idleman s new book, Don t Give Up Faith that Gives You the Confidence to Keep Believing and the Courage to Keep Going, I had no idea what God was up to or how he would use this book in my life beyond just another great resource with which to help others.On February 11th, my family received a phone call saying that my father in law was not not doing well We had just been up to see him on Sunday, the 10th, and had returned home By the time my wi When I agreed to preview and help promote Kyle Idleman s new book, Don t Give Up Faith that Gives You the Confidence to Keep Believing and the Courage to Keep Going, I had no idea what God was up to or how he would use this book in my life beyond just another great resource with which to help others.On February 11th, my family received a phone call saying that my father in law was not not doing well We had just been up to see him on Sunday, the 10th, and had returned home By the time my wife drove the two hours from our home to her folks , he was gone He had gone home to be with his Lord and Savior This was not necessarily unexpected as he had been on hospice for some time, but that did not make it any less difficult for our hearts to accept.I had just begun reading Don t Give Up and was reminded of the faith of those in the Hall of Faith as Idleman describes them in the book Little did I know how much I would need these reminders in the days ahead.Less than two weeks later, I was in my kitchen and received a phone call from my aunt informing me that my grandmother had just died While this might not seem so unexpected or difficult for some, my situation is a little unique in that my grandmother and grandfather raised me and my brother and sister She had been under a doctor s care for cancer and he had given her between two weeks and two years to live She was 95 She lived one week.I packed some things to leave and was reminded of what I was reading in Don t Give Up as I threw the book into my book bag and grabbed it and my suitcase to travel and be with my family in our loss Since my grandfather was also gone, I knew that my brother and sister and aunt and uncle would be having a hard time as well I was reminded of the faith of Abraham who took Isaac up the mountain to sacrifice him Abraham did not know that God was going to stop him from sacrificing his son He just obeyed If he could do that hard things, surely I could face the death of another loved one in such a short time.As I was driving the three hour journey to my hometown where I grew up, I received another phone call This one was different My 30 year old daughter had just been found dead in her apartment by her husband I was shocked Honestly, I don t know how I kept driving Through tears and cries of denial and asking God that it not be so, I turned around to head back to the city in which my daughter and her husband lived As I was driving, crying, making various arrangements to be gone for an extended period of time with my church, I kept remembering quotes from the book When you have a few pieces but no big picture, it s easy to give up There are moments when you find out if you really believe what you say you believe Faith, at such times, is confidence the picture is there, even though it looks like chaos Faith that gives you the confidence to keep believing and the courage to keep going is not faith in life s circumstances it s faith in God s character I know that it might sound cliche , but these quotes are things that I know, but things that I needed to be reminded of and Don t Give Up as provided those reminders If I had not been reading Idleman s book, I am sure that God would have comforted me another way, but the timing was perfect for the pain I would face God has used this book to comfort, challenge, and redirect me I am not saying that I am back together yet, but I think Don t Give Up has helped to make sure the pieces are not quite as small and the process seems to be a little smoother only time will tell.While I certainly have faith in God, people praying for me, and other resources to help, I thank God for this book, which is based on the Bible, and for His timing in having me read it I would highly recommend reading this book You needn t fear that things will happen to you while you read it, like it did to me, but it will prepare you for times when they do.If you would likeinformation on this book, visit dontgiveup.media

    Excellent read about finding hope when there seems to be none I like how Idleman adds the personal stories of his friends, in their own words They are like a modern cloud of witnesses mentioned in Hebrews and this book cheering us on to keep going.

    Using Hebrews 11 and Hebrews 12 as the foundational scriptures, this book takes you on a journey of exploring what it really means to run with perseverance, the race marked out for us It views encouragement as a battle cry It s a call to move, to act, and to advance As I read through the book, I was most impacted by 1 It s relatability There a an authenticity in the stories shared, illustrations provided, and lessons taken from both You can see yourself in this book It doesn t feel like Using Hebrews 11 and Hebrews 12 as the foundational scriptures, this book takes you on a journey of exploring what it really means to run with perseverance, the race marked out for us It views encouragement as a battle cry It s a call to move, to act, and to advance As I read through the book, I was most impacted by 1 It s relatability There a an authenticity in the stories shared, illustrations provided, and lessons taken from both You can see yourself in this book It doesn t feel like it s with you in mind so that you are encouraged to continue on One of the sentences that stood out to me is that regard is this In the moments of life where we feel exhausted and are struggling to keep going, it makes a difference to hear those voices from Scriptures, a cloud of witnesses who are alive and counting on us A marathon example is given in detail to help us relate to the power of a group of people cheering you on to the finish line There is power drawn from that type of support.2 It s practicality It s not formulaic There are no pact answers given or platitudes offered Feelings are not dismissed as illegitimate, rather, the context through which we tend to view the circumstances of our lives and the auto response we tend to operate within are challenged Early on within the book, your presented with the notion that not giving up is a choice It s a decision that we re fully capable of making and continuing to act upon.3 It s understanding of the human condition, including the spiritual nature of our existence I especially like the start of section 2 that goes Sometimes we think we need comfort when what we really need is courage Sometimes what we want is sympathy when what we re really missing is strength Sometimes we want someone to feel sorry for us when what we really need is someone to challenge us 4 It s exploration of the things that truly hinders us which happens to include religion The difference between religion and Christian faith is well explained within The first binds while the latter frees Overall, I d recommend this book for both individual and group study for all age groups I wouldn t rush through the contents but really explore those moments when people felt like given up and did not and those times when they did what made the difference Use this book to learn people s stories and to build each other s adversity quotient as iron sharpens iron
