ABOUT THE BOOK (237 pages): You, my friend, are a unique and wonder-filled creation.
You are valuable beyond your ability to comprehend treasure. In the entire universe, for all eternity, there is, and will always be, only one you. You were designed for, and placed on, planet earth to complete a mission that only you can complete.
Yes, it’s true—you are a unique and wonder-filled creation. Here’s the downside—you don’t believe it.
Do you know why? It has to do with your heritage as a human being—you’re broken.
You are not to blame. It is not your fault.
Ever wonder why you don’t understand your true worth?
Ever wonder where your beliefs about you came from? Ever wonder why you are the way you are? Ever wonder where the Motives that inspire you originated? Or, why certain Affections rule your heart—why your Desires are sometimes darker than you would care to admit—why you experience negative Feelings that regularly bring unwanted grief—why your Actions can, at times, be a source of confusion and loss—and, why you are haunted by negative and persistent Thoughts you wish would just go away?
These are the primary questions God’s system for success addresses in this book.
God will rewire and restore your Motives, Affections, Desires, Feelings, Actions and Thoughts (MADFATs).
You will be transformed by the renewing of your mind as you follow the Biblically based and simple system outlined within. You will possess a clearer vision of your purpose and realize your soul’s restoration.
Your heaven-guided, spiritual vision will clear and you will fully discern, grasp and assume the fullness of your unquestioned and royal place in the kingdom of light.
“An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field.” — Nikki Giovanni That certainly describes James Bars as he came to the end of self-sufficiency. When life became meaningless and desperation consumed him, James began a search for hope, purpose, meaning and wholeness. It is not by any virtue that James Bars has discovered how to help others. Rather his failures are the bedrock upon which God began to reach him and move him to share the hard lessons learned. You are on planet earth. You know many of the same struggles. But do you know the Way up? Do you have a system for success?
This book hits at the heart (or mind) of a lot of our issues in life. And this was a great book for me to read on the heals of Joyce Meyer’s Mind Connection. It’s like a deeper look into the tricks your mind can play on you.
People who enjoy a more scientific approach to things will like this book especially because the author talked about the brain and the way it functions. I am not a scientific type of person so I did have trouble focusing at times because that’s just not how I learn but that’s okay.
There are a lot of good things in this book. Early on, on page 15, the author writes, “Homeostasis is your system’s tendency and ability to maintain internal stability. Anxiety, worry, fear, resentment and anger, as well as negative motives, affections, desires, feelings, actions and thoughts of any type, contribute to a lack of homeostasis and thus add to your level of stress.” I found that to be extremely interesting.
Later, on the same page, James writes, “Fear cannot be satisfied. Satan knows this and strives to keep you fear-based and stressed, so he can steal, kill and destroy your life.” Good stuff right there.
The end of the book has worksheets so you can work on rewiring your thought process. If your MADFATS need rewiring (and whose don’t) this might be the book for you.
