What I’m Reading – Undaunted

22 Aug

My Thoughts

I have a confession to make…
I stalk Christine Caine.
I read her blog, listen to her podcasts, and follow her on Twitter.
When you listen to or read what Christine Caine has to share,
you realize that she leaks Jesus.
I want to be around for the splash.
Undaunted is the testimony of someone who was lost and then was found.
A story of the rescued called to rescue.
It isn’t just her story, but ours as well.
Throughout this book Christine shares about looking to God for her identity along with her purpose. She is completely transparent in telling her story, showing how God has worked in her life and brought her through so much with the truth in His Word.
My favorite part of the book is where Christine
shares about finding our identity.
Why is it so hard to choose first what God says about us?
Why do we listen to the voices of others more than His?
Allowing the labels you give yourself or someone else gives you can cause you to miss God’s truth about who you are and into not pursuing God’s purpose for your life.
Go to your Bible to remind yourself what God says.
God’s Truths
  • God made each one of us.
  • God chooses each one of us.
  • God is always with us.
  • He names us.
  • He saved us.
  • He is our Father.
She goes on to write about overcoming disappointment,
fighting fear, and following the example that Christ set before us.
She challenges us to believe and go.
To be the rescued rescuers.
To live…
Undaunted.

About the Book

Christine Caine offers life-transforming insights about how not only to overcome the challenges, wrong turns, and often painful circumstances we all experience, but also to actually grow from those experiences and be equipped and empowered to help others.

Using her own dramatic life story, Caine shows how God rescued her from a life where she was unnamed, unwanted, and unqualified. She tells how she overcame abuse, abandonment, fears, and other challenges to go on a mission of adventure, fueled by faith and filled with love and courage.

Her personal stories inspire readers to hear their name called, just as Christine heard her own—‘You are beloved. You are the hope. You are chosen’—to go into a dark and troubled world, knowing each of us possess all it takes to bring hope, create change, and live completely for Christ.
