Book Review - The Wall Around Your Heart
About the Book
Family members hurt us. Friends betray us. Fellow Christians deceive us. But Jesus provides a path through the pain—the Lord’s Prayer.
In The Wall Around Your Heart, Mary DeMuth shows you that you can reach wholeness and healing in the aftermath of painful relationships by following the road map of the Lord’s Prayer. You’ll walk through story after story of hurt people who are led through biblical truth into amazing, life-sustaining, joyful growth.
Life is hard. People can be mean and petty and awful. But they can also be amazing and beautiful and sacrificial. God is good. He is faithful. You can trust him with your relationships. “He’ll send people to call out what is hard in your heart,” Mary shares. “And that’s a gift to you.”
Allow God to access the wall around your heart. Dare to say, “Tear down the bricks, Lord, whatever it takes.” Pray first. Ask for bravery—for yourself and for others. Risk engaging despite your hurt. Seek the shelter of Jesus. You don’t have to resign yourself to your wounds! You can rise above the pain. You’ll usher in a new life—an openhearted way of relating to others that expands the kingdom of God. In the process, you’ll draw closer to Jesus, be healed, and become an agent of healing to others.
My Take on the Book
Everyone gets hurt in their life, but in this book the author does a good job to examine this hurt that others can bring upon us and helps others to learn from her own example to show that prayer and returning to God is the only way to go. Through this return the author shows how she was able to open her heart to others again. This book provides great resources and ideas bout what all readers can do to be able to trust and open our heart through the path of Jesus and what God asks us to do daily. The book leaves you feeling inspired to dare again and to rise above the pain that has been caused so that you can move forward with your life.
