Awaken With Gratitude Book Review:

Hillis Pugh provided a Journal of Spiritual Insight and Revelation with readers. It reads like a kind of “synopsis to identity” while on the road of that particular spiritual journey. The theme of some of these synopsis are thankfulness, hope, gratitude, creating, healing, oneness, acceptance, and numerous others. Hillis shares with the readers a far-reaching radius of things to be grateful and thankful for, Many of those things I haven’t even thought of in the past. In the manner that, “As times goes on we tend to forget about our ancestors and elders who put forth the work to bring us where we are today.” These are raw perception, occasionally simple and truthful, and occasionally complicated and poetic, in order that can be used as a daily devotional for inspiration and reflection. “Awaken With Gratitude” I truly found to be an awesome read. This inspirational manual will leads you through a medley of characteristic moments, personal broad view and a sequence of intimate explanation. The drawing power is captivate as it presents several categories of which we as the people can show gratitude for.

“Awaken With Gratitude” is an inspiring book penned by Hillis Pugh which highlight part of the most complex perception, predicament and life lessons we confront in our daily life. Awaken With Gratitude is penned for the purpose in the format of an easy to in the manner by having knowledge of gratitude , prior to one cannot on the other hand reflect for hours upon his persuasive lessons. Hillis is a truly God-gifted author who shows us how to be thankful for the abundance, blessings and even tribulations which everyone must come up against in life. I truly believe every person who are reading this motivational book will agree with me in expressing gratitude. I really appreciated Hillis Pugh for allowing God to guide the pen from his anointed hand to created this empowering pilgrimage into love and spiritual enlightenment. Awaken with Gratitude in my personal observation is about each one of us, human existence and positive life energy. In the Christian Community, We always shows our gratitude to Jesus Christ for our lives with praise. In the Book of Psalm, the 100th Chapter and the 4th verses mentioned “Enter his gates with thanksgiving … give thanks to him and praise his name”. We should to remember God’s Goodness every day of the year (Everyday Is A Day Of Thanksgiving). Life isn’t constantly the way we wish it were, although even in the midst of life’s trouble times, God’s grace and mercy are at rest with us. Nothing transforms our darkness like the shining light in the gift of thankfulness. Part of showing our gratitude or being thankful is the Creations from God.

Creations surrounds us everyday and every hour and minute. With that creations comes a story or history. We all have our own personal history allowing us to have knowledge of more about ourselves to grow and have the opportunity to change who we are or desire to become. Each one of us has a story to tell, but we let the story of our life define us and yes at times defining moments changes us. In the Book of Psalm, the 139th Chapter and the 13th and 14th verses mentioned “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful,I know that full well.” Hillis Pugh mentioned in “Awakening With Gratitude” that stuck with me, “We are not our story; our story is us and we give our story life, meaning and purpose. All of which makes us who we are. We can tell our story objectively to assist others by being an example. Our story only lives if we give it life through understanding and defining who we are. He asked the readers this question and it is a great one, ‘What are you living for?’ Be who you know you already are. Know your worth. If you don’t know who you are or your worth then ask yourself this question in the mirror, ‘Who Am I?’ We are the creators of our lives with abundant options to manifest purpose and desire by faithfully living whole with all life.” I can personally relate to Hillis’ statement. In 2014, I was dealing with depression and anxiety. I thought my life was over because I felt I was a failure. I tried to take my own life but God interrupted that plan because He have a purpose for me. After I was hospitalized for mental illness about two months, I decide to work on my path to recovery. Recovery is work but it is worthy and I am glad that I am still here. My gratitude is for God not allowing me to take my own life. If I had succeed to commit suicide then I would have miss out on opportunities and what life can benefit for me. I am thankful for my illness for showing me that I am not a failure and mental illness doesn’t define me who I am. Also I have a second chance of life and share my story with others which many individuals were inspired by my story.

If anyone are considering for a book in the purpose to feed your mind and soul that will give you inspirations, then I would definitely recommend “Awakening With Gratitude”. My favorite passage from “Awaken With Gratitude” that were mentioned “Be thankful this day and everyday for the watchers of our lives”. In the Book of Psalm, the 95th Chapter and the 1st thru the 3rd verses explain to us ” Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods.” Everyday we should be grateful for alarms and the signs from God that we gives notice and awaken to. Everyday we should be grateful for the reasoning and meaning our Heavenly Father has brought to us. Thank God that the Angels are watching over us and keeping us in His safety. I think that’s a great summary of how “Awaken With Gratitude” will comfort on your heart. Mr. Pugh has provided a foundation path to the basics of individual and social presence synergy. He is acquainted of the urgency for mental growth through conscious apprehension. “Awaken with Gratitude” exposed an entrance that can guide you to restore your true self. Mr. Pugh’s observation attempt to provide a direct path to your true self; in spite of each person must be willing take that first step. The first step is acceptance of restoring your true self. The second step is to make known of that change to occur. Hillis Pugh really allow himself through the guidance of the Holy Spirit to provided ideas and insights for those individuals who are becoming more aware of a shift. That Shift I am talking about is in their mental mindset and their conscious state of being. He does this through suggestions, lessons and poems about love and life.
