"I had it all backwards. The main thing was not my love for God, but his love for me. And from that love I respond to God as one deeply flawed, yet loved. I m not looking to prove my worth. I m not searching for acceptance. I m living out of the worth God already declares I have. I m embracing his view of me and in the process discovering the person he created me to be.
In "Eyes Wide Open, "Jud Wilhite invites you to discover the "real" you. Not the you who pretends to be perfect to satisfy everyone's expectations. Not the you who always feels guilty before God. Not the you who secretly feels God forgives everyone else but only tolerates you. Not the you who looks in the mirror and sees a failure. The real you, loved and forgiven by God, living out of your identity in Christ.
A travel guide through real spirituality from one incomplete person to another, "Eyes Wide Open" is a book of stories about following God in the messes of life, about broken pasts and our lifelong need for grace. It is a book about seeing ourselves and God with new eyes eyes wide open to a God of love.
