I review for BookLook Bloggers

I read Rise: Get Up and Live in God's Great Story by Trip Lee in exchange for honest review from Book Look Bloggers. I have heard of Trip Lee before. He is an amazing Christian hip-hop artist. I choose to review the electronic edition of the book.

I wanted to review the book because sometimes, we need to rise up and do the work of God, instead of thinking this life is all about us. In church on Sunday, we learned how Jesus died on the cross for us so we can live for him. He didn't give up his life so we can do our will. Not our will, but his. Jesus's death paid the ransom for sin, so we can live again.

Lee started out discussing how his life had changed when he became a Christian as a teenager. I also loved this views on the 7:00 am logic. I, too, have to force myself out of bed each morning, if I want my kids to get ready and catch the school bus. Waiting a few extra minutes can be the difference between them staying at home or getting an excellent education.

Next, I liked how he discussed how we have expectations of what we want our lives to be, but it doesn't always go according to our plans. Lee says while we are not perfect, we are not worthless either. We may be broken but God can put us back together. (reminds me of a Lecrae song). Lee says the only way we can rise is if we rise with Him. This book is an excellent read.

You can purchase the book on Amazon in Kindle, Paperback, Audible, and MP3 format.
