Spiritual Rhythm: Being with Jesus Every Season of Your Soul by Mark Buchanan

And then God gave me insight: this was winter. It would end, in time, but not by my own doing. My responsibility was simply to know the season, and match my actions and inactions to it. It was to learn the slow hard discipline of waiting. It was my season to believe in spite of—to believe in the absence of evidence or emotion, when there’s nothing, no bud, no color, no light, no birdsong, to validate belief. It was my time to walk without sight.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

There is no happiness like that of being loved by your fellow creatures, and feeling that your presence is an addition to their comfort.

Ordinary: Sustainable Faith in a Radical, Restless World by Michael Horton

Brokenness, Surrender, Holiness: A Revive Our Hearts Trilogy by Nancy Leigh DeMoss

False humility and morbid introspection are, in fact, the opposite of brokenness, as they reveal a preoccupation with self, rather than Christ.

He Speaks in the Silence: Finding Intimacy with God by Learning to Listen by Diane Comer

Intimacy With The Almighty by Charles Swindoll

    I read that Diane Comer book last year. So good! Currently reading Unseen (still) by Sara Hagerty and Church of the Small Things by Melanie Shankle. Hoping to start Keep a Quiet Heart by Elisabeth Elliot soon!
