Chrisna Abi’s “A Life Designed” is an ordinary girl’s faith journey in the adventure of taking ownership of a life designed by a sovereign and faithful God.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa. (PRWEB) July 31, 2017, Holy Fire Publishing ( releases “A Life Designed” Paperback, U.S. $7.99, ISBN:978-1-60383-542-8 Chrisna Abi’s journal of finding her unique identity, purpose and promise as she follows an extraordinary Creator. She shares her testimony of God’s faithfulness and the freedom, joy, and adventure found in a life designed and led by God.

“A Life Designed” will encourage believers to pursue God, to overcome frustration and confusion, to release false comforts and securities, to step into freedom by faith and experience the beauty and adventure of their unique journey, identity and purpose designed by God.

Chrisna Abi’s journal teaches the value of being redirected, camping (waiting/transition), running out of self-provided supplies, being strengthened in faith and hope in the knowledge that God is sovereign and faithful, and discovering ways to live with natural resources and adapting to changes and the importance of health in spirit, soul and body. Choosing to step out of her comfort zone and releasing her fear and doubt, she embraced a new faith journey. Miss Abi shares moments in which God revealed His beauty and faithfulness to her, and His truths that she held onto through times of frustration and uncertainty.

“On this journey, there are many treasures to be discovered, gifts and promises that God has given us through Christ. Salvation and knowing Christ are the greatest gifts of all. They have changed my life, my desires, and my perception of life itself. Life is not without obstacles and challenges, but I will choose to follow Christ every single day. Jesus did say to those who chose to be His followers to take up their cross and follow Him (Matthew 16:24). My life often feels shaken so much that the only way I can stay grounded is by seeking God’s presence, trusting Him, and giving Him control. In times such as these, it helps to focus on the present when my next step is unclear and I don’t know what to do, and find comfort that there is a bigger picture even when I cannot see it. Only by God’s strength and grace am I able to persevere through this journey and keep walking on the water, walking in faith into the unknown. I know God holds my future, and that assurance, that I am saved and have eternal life through Jesus Christ, is so much more empowering than the thought that I am in control of my own plans. Having a relationship with Christ is the greatest adventure I have ever chosen to embrace; it is one that satisfies my soul to its core. Without it, I am nothing. The discovery has no end, and there is a peace and a hope that are unshaken and eternal. As you continue to read this journal, I pray that your heart will be open and that God will lead you on your own faith journey and adventure with Him, and that He may fill you with His indescribable peace, unconditional love, and a desire to seek more of Him.” – Chrisna Abi
