When God Whispers Your Name:
Discover the Path to Hope in Knowing That God Cares For You
By: Max Lucado

Lucado’s book is very hopeful and awe-inspiring in an uncertain and highly complex time. Lucado believes that somewhere between the pages of this book, you will hear God speaking to you and calling your name. Many of us don’t feel worthy for God to give us any attention. Perhaps we’ve made mistakes or are feeling unhopeful. We seem to be running from one thing to another without a purpose or mission. Starting today, our life could become much more meaningful.

How can God speak to us, we may ask? Well, God can speak to us by doing good works in us. We have so much to make our lives much more meaningful. We just have to want to do it. God may also speak to us through the pages of Lucado’s book. I know I had moments of complete peace and acceptance while reading this book. And I think that was God telling me that everything will be okay in my life. All I have to do is have faith and trust God.

Many of us are experiencing a carcinoma of the spirit. We have a lot of anger which won’t go away. We can’t face the past and we want to change it. We fear the future and what may happen. Consequently, this present moment becomes a time when we don’t live fully much less experience God’s loving embrace in our lives. One of the first things that we should do is to let go of our anger and to trust God. God will mend our heart and spirit, if we allow Him to help us. All we have to do is ask in prayer, and it will be granted.

Lucado believes that God is not near us, around us but in us. God is in the heart no one else has seen. God lives in the hidden recesses of our being. All we have to do is turn inward to experience God’s majesty and peace. And yes, we must take the time and make the space to listen to God because He is speaking to us. In fact, He may be calling our name this very moment. All we have to do is pay attention.
