Not Forsaken: Finding Freedom as Sons & Daughters of a Perfect Father by Louie Giglio | Christian Life Review

Not Forsaken by Louie Giglio

Christian Life

You are
chosen
loved
prized
wanted
believed in
by a perfect Father

In Not Forsaken, Pastor Louie Giglio invites ut to understand the character of God in a life-changing way: as a perfect Father who wants you to live under the waterfall of His blessing. You see, God is not the bigger version of your earthly dad. And He's inviting you to walk in freedom as His loved son or daughter.

Forgiveness is not a free pass for the person who has wounded you. Forgiveness is rooted in Christ's love and justice.

My Thoughts

I knew what this book was about when I picked it up. I knew it was going to be about our earthly fathers as well as our heavenly Father. I thought I was ready to read it. But I wasn't. I read the first chapter, cried my eyes out, and promptly tossed it on the coffee table and walked away.

But that book just kept calling my name. So I picked it back up and read some more. I cried a little more and put it back on the coffee table. After this second reading session I knew I needed to finish it. I knew I would find healing in the end but I also knew it would be like ripping a band-aid off. And it was.

My earthly father was a flawed man. He hurt me deeply but God showed me how to forgive and move on. Louie Giglio's writing took me through that journey again and it was tough but it was so worth it.

If you have a father, and we all do, you need to read this book. Even if you have to read it over a period of time like I did you should. Being able to see your relationship through the lens of your heavenly Father puts things in perspective.

I found this book to be a hard read but worth every tear. We all have a longing for a good father and this affirms that He's already there just waiting for you to come to Him.
