Have you struggled along in your journey of trusting in God yet longed to be closer to Him?
Are you feeling pretty secure in your relationship with Jesus, but wondering how you may be able to draw even closer?
Do you feel completely distant from the God you once firmly believed in and loved strongly?
If you resonate with any of the above questions, then you will likely resonate with the reason David Showers wrote his book Ten Steps to a Closer Walk with God.
As a matter of fact, let me let him tell you a bit about why he wrote this book:
So, with prayer and the Word of God, Showers set out to write this book both for himself and for others. He compiled a list of things he struggled with in his walk with God---things which he says he felt stood between himself and God.So many times in my life I've wanted to grow closer to God, but for some reason I kept hitting walls. Why is it I have such difficulty with my faith growing when I want it so badly?After years of reflection, I've figured out that it isn't one single obstacle I had to overcome, but many. I've also learned that I will never accomplish my goal of being as close to God as I desire. I've come to realize that my relationship with God is ever-changing and growing. As with any relationship, it takes time, dedication and trust for it to blossom.
That list became the chapters of Ten Steps to a Closer Walk with God. Check them out here and see if any or all of them resonate with you.
- GIVING UP CONTROL
- LEARNING TO TRUST
- DEALING WITH DOUBT
- FINDING FAITH
- UNDERSTANDING FORGIVENESS

I will say that some of what he shares reveals that he and I differ on some theological points, however ultimately we are siblings and sojourners together in the family and body of Christ. Our hearts are united in our love for Jesus and our desire to point others to Him as long as we remain on this earth.
