So Why Are You Still Paddling?:
Learning How to Trust
LEARNING how to TRUST GOD - in positions of LEADERSHIP and in your MARRIAGE
In this sequel to her first book (Who’s Paddling Your Canoe?), Barbara focuses only on one subject – how to trust God. Although we may believe that being in control is better, Barbara proves that knowing when to let go of the paddles and trusting God in every situation results in the best outcomes.
Years may have passed since that memorable decision to accept Jesus Christ into our lives. We may have had seasons of paddling and seasons of being still. Some of these seasons may have been God-ordained, while others may have seen us paddling out of rebellion and ignorance.
When God asks why we’re still paddling, He is reminding us that we need to trust Him. We must put down the paddles and let God lead in two of the most significant and difficult areas of our lives – in LEADERSHIP and our MARRIAGES.
This book will provide ten biblical examples of how people trusted God. Each of their situations was different and how they chose to trust God was also different. We are shown that when we’re in a position of leadership or influence, we can still choose to trust God. The second most difficult area to trust God is our relationships, especially our marriages. By surrendering control in these areas, we learn different postures of trusting God.
