PUSH by Cindy Trimm

Do you need some encouragement to persevere? Do you have a dream from God but need to know how to make that dream a reality?

Trimm inspires you to be who God wants you to be. She wants you to push past barriers, to overcome struggles, and to persevere in prayer – praying until the solution materializes. She likens the process to birth, identifying herself as a literary midwife. She helps you bring forth what God wants to birth through you.

God will strategically place you in the optimum place to accomplish His will. “He carefully provides challenges and problems that will cause you to press down and tap into your greatest potential.” (32)

Trimm helps you realize that great achievers had to overcome challenges that threatened to derail them. She has included some great examples and stories of people who have pushed through adversity to the dream God gave them. She includes encouragement on right thinking, visualizing, attitude, perceptions, habits, decisions, work, relationships, time, and much more.

Trimm writes, “The power of our thoughts, intentions, and words can manifest new realities, create something from nothing, and they can even alter the physical universe.” (111-112) She refers to people like Dr. William Tiller, Deepak Chopra, Nikola Tesla, and Marianne Williamson for evidence proving the power of thought. That Trimm refers to these people on the fringes of science or who promote eastern thinking bothers me. I would rather have seen references to the Bible than these people.

Trimm believes that God has planted a seed in you and that you have been placed in this time and place for a purpose. Reading this book is an encouragement to persevere in giving birth to your dreams. Just pay attention to the biblical encouragement and skip the nonbiblical stuff.

Dr. Cindy Trimm is a best-selling author, high impact teacher, and former senator. She is an empowerment specialist, revolutionary thinker, and transformational leader. She is a frequent guest on Christian broadcasting's most popular TV and radio programs.
