[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]For me one of the most simple, yet profound books that has touched my heart has been The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale. I first ‘found’ and read the classic book when I was at a low point separated from my husband (we have since remarried) and unemployed. My weight had crept up and i was living with my Aunt and Uncle trying to find a job, any job.
Sitting here, reliving a bit of that pain and uncertainty…well. God is Good. I believe He found me where I was that day.
At the time, the library and brick and mortar bookstores were my solace. (I miss having a Barnes and Noble every five miles.) There, I would sit for hours sending out my resume and reading anything I could to encourage myself. It was a horrible winter that year in Maryland and feeling incredibly alone and like a big loser, I stumbled upon this book, which I read completely in a night. I continued to read and re-read the book! It has been a treasure to my life.
The principles are simple –have an simple trust in our Lord and believe He can and will help you. So simple, yet no other book has quite touched me the way Mr. Peale’s book has.
