Lazarus Awakening by Joanna Weaver

 

Lazarus Awakeningsm

 

Joanna is celebrating the release of Lazarus Awakening with the Heart of God KINDLE Giveaway! In Lazarus Awakening Joanna writes about getting God’s love from our heads to our hearts. We all know Jesus loved Mary – look how she worshiped. And we can understand why He loved Martha – after all, look how she served. But what about those of us who don’t know where we fit in the heart of God? Lazarus Awakening explores the tale of the third follower – Mary and Martha’s brother, Lazarus. We never hear him speak, we never see him serve. The only thing of any significance that Lazarus did was to die. And yet, the Bible is clear. Jesus loved Lazarus. And He loves you and me as well. Lazarus Awakening looks at different aspects of the story we find in John 11. We learn what it means to be a friend of God and begin recognizing the tombs we spend far too much time in. Find out more here.

My Review

Lazarus Awakening is about true love, the love God has for us, his children and how we can obtain the same type of love for God our Father.  Yes, we say we love the Father and I’m sure we all do, but just how deep is our love and could we love him more than we already do?

Joanna shows us through the story of Lazarus how we can deepen our love for God. I connected with her on so many levels and have gone through a lot of the same feelings and levels of wanting to hear God speak to me that it is uncanny. It’s like she was writing my thoughts down right out of my head. Scary, huh? I thought so too! The stories of the people in the book are heart wrenching, jubilating and in the end, God glorified. There is a study guide at the back of the book along with some resources. I highly recommend this book to everyone who wants a closer and more loving relationship with God.
