All That’s Good

I don’t know about you, but I agonize over making choices. I question whether I have enough information to make the wisest choice. Making a decision that lines up with God’s will is often at the top of my mind.

There is so much access to information available at our fingertips these days, that it can be paralyzing to make decisions. Or even to just know whether we see different events from the right point of view. The ability to discern different moments in life is at a high premium.

I tend to try to make decisions in line with what feels “safe” to me. But what I’m learning is that that’s not always the decision God wants me to make.

I eagerly jumped into reading Hannah Anderson’s newest book, All That’s Good: Recovering the Lost Art of Discernment.

Walking through Philippians 4:8, Anderson shows you how to discern what is good. Throughout this book, you learn how to change thought patterns and previously held beliefs in order to realign yourself to be able to see through the eyes of God.

I appreciated the deep dive into Philippians 4:8. It seems most of the time, I hear that we are supposed to keep our thought lives focused on whatever is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely and commendable – but I don’t often hear how we are actually to shape our thought lives to think about those things.

Changing Thought Patterns

Anderson takes the time to break down each of those ways of thinking so that we truly can change the thought patterns we’ve developed. By digging into each of these words, Anderson shows us how to focus on all that’s good and how to apply this new way of thinking as we make decisions and discern what is going on in the world around us. Anderson shows us how to focus on what is good – and gives us the ability to make decisions that allow you to enter into God’s plan for redemption. You’ll move beyond making decisions based on what feels safe to what lines up with God’s will for your life.


I received a copy of this book from the publisher. This review is my own, honest opinion.
