Sitting in God's Sunshine...Resting in His Love

by Alicia Britt Chole

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Written by Alicia Britt Chole, Sitting in Godís Sunshine...Resting in His Love gently encourages readers to rediscover what it truly means to find rest in the Spirit of God. The stress of life can be overwhelming: it drains the body, mind, and soul. A good nightís rest can replenish the body and mind, but the only cure for a tired soul is Godís presence.

As Chole illustrates, submitting to Godís will and resting in His presence leads to a refreshed soul and replenished emotions. Chole uses applicable, easy-to-understand illustrations to explain her main points. Years of serving the Lord through writing, public speaking, and study of the Word, have given her precious insight in a variety of ways in which God cares for His children.

Chole writes, ďOne remedy alone exists that can refresh a weary spirit. Rich cream can relieve dry hands and a hot bath can comfort aching bones, but only the God who created us can breathe new life into the depths of our being. There are no substitutes for His Presence.Ē Chole draws direct quotations from the Bible as evidence, explaining how they relate to her theme for each chapter.

Though only 222 pages long, this little book is a delightful read! Sitting in Godís Sunshine is written in clear, practical language with short, straightforward chapters. Alicia Britt Choleís inspirational book is a great read for anyone who is weary in spirit and searching for soulful refreshment. -- Bridgette Oakes, Christian Book
