Book Review: What Keeps You Up At Night?
We all have fears! These fears can be paralyzing and keep us from fully living life and fulfilling the plans God wants us to fulfill. What Keeps You Up At Night by Pete Wilson is a book for all Christians who want to know how to put fears in to the right perspective. I found this book well written, and full of very practical advice. The author states ” I encourage you to think of this book as a field guide to ruthlessly trusting God’s plan – even in the face of difficulty and uncertainty.” There are 12 chapters to this book and each chapter has a summary of the main points at the end, as well as Reflective Questions for further thought or discussion.
I found that I benefited from reading this book and would likely recommend or provide copies of this book to friends who struggle with fears, concerns, and anxieties and need to refocus on God. The author encourages just that, to make the choice to focus not on the problems but on the One who is bigger than the problems and able to help us and provide the resources we need. He states that ” the object is not to fear less; it’s learning to trust God more. I found the illustrations from the Bible and modern times to be encouraging and supportive of the author’s perspective. I found that he offered very practical applications for each Christian to use in having a more God-focused, victorious life in the midst of trials and challenges.
