Godwink Stories review

Godwink Stories: A Devotional Description:

Building on the themes in his popular book When God Winks, SQuire Rushnell shares real-life stories that are certain to uplift and encourage you.

The stories in this book reaffirm that godwinks happen to everyone. We just need to learn how to see them, allow them to unfold, and accept them as direct, person-to-person communications from God to each of us.
As you’ll see, those so-called coincidences that you’d been dismissing so easily really do mean something. And you need to pay attention. They are like unopened gifts that have been placed upon your doorstep.

You will be amazed to read how every joy, every hurt, and every worry that happens to you has already been written about in the Bible. Godwink Stories simply draws upon the parallel between the stories of real people and God’s wisdom in the scriptures.

Godwink Stories can be read in various ways. You can read the book cover to cover. Or follow along each week for a year. It’s also perfect to read for a pick-me-up story that fits your need of the day.

Whether you’re looking for encouragement in a time of need or a story that speaks of joy, there’s a godwink story just for you.
Godwink Stories offers weekly readings of godwinks and miracles to encourage and inspire you in every situation. These true stories— from ordinary people—provide:

  • Messages of “don’t give up”
  • Heartfelt need for love and guidance
  • Hope in the midst of medical crises
  • “Just in time” moments
  • Peace in times of sorrow
  • Tender love stories
  • Amazing answers to prayer
My Review:

This book is in response to When GOD Winks: How the Power of Coincidence Guides Your Life also written by Squire Rushnell.  Readers had read the first book and submitted their stories of when God winked at them.  Rushnell then gathered these stories and chose 52 of them to include in this book.  You can expect to read a Bible verse, and introduction to the theme, the submitted God Wink story, and then Rushnell's response.  Think Chicken Soup for the Soul with more Bible focus.

The stories are uplifting, including ones from Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel), Bill Bright (founder of Campus Crusaders for Christ), and many from people just like you and me.  They are a great reminder that while He is the God of the universe, He also takes time for the small details as well; the little things that may mean nothing to the person that is standing beside you, but means everything to you.  Authentic, real moments with God shared by others to remind us that God truly is with us every minute of every day.

If you need a pick me up then this is the book for you!  A great gift for a friend as well!
