Review – “Always True”

Let me ask you a question…I mean a REALLY HONEST question – Do you believe God can be trusted? That might sound like a silly question. It feels strange to even type it and looks odd when I read it. Yet when life gets hard and the tough times come, I wonder if I really believe that God’s promises are true. I question if I have the faith to believe that I would be able to cling to those promises if that were all I had left.

In his book, “Always True”, James MacDonald attacks these questions straight on. He targets 5 specific promises which we can use as an anchor when times get tough….and even when they aren’t. Unlike a feel good story or sermon with no real proof, MacDonald weaves his case of support using scripture and personal applications from his own life. The 5 promises are as follows:

1 – God is always with me. I will not fear.
2 – God is always in control. I will not doubt.
3 – God is always good. I will not despair.
4 – God is always watching. I will not falter.
5 – God is always victorious. I will not fail.

We live in a cynical world. I, for one, am as cynical at times as they come. When the times get tough, I will be honest and say I struggle with having the faith to see them through. If you’re like me, then this book is for you. If you are facing a time like that right now, this book is for you. You will be challenged and inspired to believe that God is good and can be trusted.

I give “Always True” a 4 out of 5.

  1. It has been a really rough few days with a family situation. I finally came to a place where I had come to my end. There was nothing more I could do….say or think….the only thing left to do was give it all to God, to trust Him.

    1. Congrats John. You are the only one that replied. I’ll bring your copy tonight. Keep trusting Him and doing what you’re doing. Joy comes in the morning my friend.
