Crushing by TD Jakes
This book is a reflection of my entire life. I have struggled for years as a Christian and have gone threw attacks from the devil. He has turned people close to me away. However, I still stand on his word. I lost everything in this Crushing, my house, my job, and after 27 years of marriage my husband walked out after I proved he was communicating with other woman, Monday after Easter. Once I proved he was a liar, he came to our apartment and packed everything. Chapter 9 - 12, has helped me understand the process of what I am going threw. I bought the book Thursday and went threw a Purge on Friday and although I am hurt my husband walked, God have me a strange peace inside. I don’t cry about my situation like I had been. But I did not read the book until a few hours after the Purge on Friday. This book sums up my entire life up until now, for real. TD Jakes, has gone threw what I have, he has suffered great losses to know and sum up my life of 51 years, so far. This book helped me to understand my life and letting me know I will make it and not go crazy. Mr. TD Jakes, thanks for being obedient and sharing your experience, I have your book on my phone and I am buying another copy paperback. Every Christian who is failing at everything for no good reason and things just do not make sense, buy the book.
I wanted to give this 5 stars so badly. I enjoyed this all the way until track 5. It almost became a buzz kill when we took five steps back to discuss racism. True that its existence can not be denied, but as a Christian and a police officer, I felt blamed for others injustice in this track. So many of us do so much to try and make a difference only to be overshadowed by rumors, false perceptions, and lies that attempt to mingle us as one ball of racist, power thirsty bullies. C’mon... was it necessary to add that? Rhetorically, the answer is no.
