Into Your Hands, Father - Abandoning Ourselves to the God Who Loves Us
By Fr. Wilfrid Stinissen. In the Lord's Prayer, we pray, "Thy will be done." The words come quickly, but do we really mean them? Into Your Hands, Father takes you on a spiritual journey in examining how attune you are to God in your life. Fr. Stinissen, a Carmelite priest, presents the three stages of abandonment to God. The first stage is accepting God's will as it shows up in your day to day life. The second stage is you saying "yes" to God's will in every moment of your life. The third stage is being so united to God, that it is no longer about you doing God's will, but, rather, God doing His will through you. Think about that. With realistic examples, Fr. Stinissen shows how God guides you to that third stage of total trust and surrender. Included is a beautiful prayer of abandonment to pray each day, as well as a sure test method if you are truly living in God's will. This simple, but profound book will be an excellent guide for your spiritual life. Softcover, 105 pages.
