Do you feel restless, like something is missing in your life?  Do you have a relationship with God?

In this book, Jan Hettinga will help you find the source of your restlessness and how to grow closer to Jesus.  You need to meet Him and grow closer with the conversation that works best for you.

Here are some sources of restlessness towards God:

  • Arguing with Him
  • Blaming Him
  • Abusing Him
  • Playing Him

Here are ways to solve the restlessness:

  • Seeing Him
  • Curious about Him
  • Respect for Him
  • Coming to Him 

About the Author-

Jan Hettinga and his wife, Scharme, currently live in Washington state.  They have three married children and eleven grandchildren.  He was a pastor near Seattle for many years, and he is currently the leadership development pastor at Cascade Community Church.

My thoughts-

I thought this book was very relevant for today’s society.  On the news and on social media, I see so many people who are restless and need to find peace in God.

I liked how the book was divided into “Sources of Restlessness” and “Coming to the End of Restlessness.”  Some of the sources are anger, at odds with God, and arguing with Him.  People can come to God by being curious and seeing and respecting him.

The personal stories of others’s struggles is what helped make this book more personal.  I could see myself in those people.  I have argued, walked away from, and played God.  It made me restless, and I didn’t even know it.  These days I am wtih God and I know that He will always be there for me and I have great respect and desire to know Him.

As I said before this book is relevant, please read it.  After that share it with your friends and family members.
