Ask and you shall receive

This morning I cried out to the Lord and asked Him to please bless me with a gift.  I really feel the need of a special blessing.

This afternoon I went to my post box and found an envelope.  On the front in big bold letters

A gift for you ...

You can imagine how my heart was pounding. That's the first time that has ever happened. With trembling hands I opened the envelope and with in was a book for me ....

Title: The 10 Second Rule
Author: Clare De Graaf
Pages: 176
Published: 2011
Hardcover ISBN: 978 0 9836897 0 6

I can't wait to read it. Have any of you read / heard about this book ?  If so what were your thoughts ?

I am feeling so blessed I just had to share.  Due to the obedience of John and Sarita Holzmann I experienced the answer to a heartfelt cry to my Lord. Thank you so much.


What others are saying about the book:

"Excellent ... helps turn down the noise so we can listen, really listen to the Savior's direction and follow! I highly recommend this small book filled with big impact!"

"Ephesians 2:10 tells us, ‘For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do the work that He has prepared in advance for us to do.’ In his book The 10 Second Rule, Clare encourages us to become so familiar with the voice of the Spirit of God, so in tune with His call, that we hasten to listen and obey. This has been Clare’s lifestyle for many years as he mentors other men and sees many of them grow in Christ."

  1. Wow! What a blessing and answer to prayer! I have heard good things about the book and look forward to you posting about it!

    Have a wonderful last few days before Christmas!
    Many blessings,

  2. I received this in the mail from Sonlight yesterday too!

  3. Hi Lisa.

    It was an amazing moment. Actually that is a first for me and one I treasure. Will let you know the end of next week what I thought of the book when I do my first book review for 52 in 52

    Hi Jo

    I felt so blessed when it arrived :)
    Hope it's as good as it looks !

  4. Hi, I'm the author of The 10 Second Rule. My wife and I are on vacation with our children and our 13 grandchildren here in Michigan and also working on some edits for my book early in the mornings. I really would enjoy reading your review and any suggestions you have.
    Many of my most recent edit ideas have come from readers who had questions that I felt I deserved to be addressed in future printings. My book is self-published so I have flexibility in these matters.

    By now the new year will have come down under, but nevertheless I'll pray God's best for you. Blessing, Clare

  5. Hi Clare

    Thank you for the blessing.

    I officially start reading your book today to kick off a challenge I am participating in this year. I have been counting down the days till I could begin :)

    I will let you know my thoughts as soon as I have finished your book later this week.

    May His hand of blessing rest on you daily and may you hear His voice clearly each day guiding you in His way.

    Blessings to you and your family.
