A book filled with deep Revelations of God's love and compassion
Hands down one of the best books I ever read,came across, been exposed and introduced to in all my days. A practical manual of how to grow,mature and prosper in your spirituality and reach new levels of godliness in your daily walk of faith with god. A book that every believer in god should have.
Had Brother Lawrence not been caught up in the trappings of the religious systems of the day, (many of which are still in effect today) I feel he would have been another Apostle Paul. God does not send sickness, nor are we suffering with God when we are sick. God is neither sick nor suffering, then how are we suffering with Him? Jesus said that He came to give us life and life more abundantly. However, his insistence of seeking the face of God on a constant basis, in everything that we do throughout the day, every day, is a truth that cannot be even the least bit understated.
