Honest And Informative
The Long Walk Back by Stephen Mizell is a wonderfully honest account of the author’s fall from grace and his walk back into the will of God. Through Stephen Mizell’s experiences, he shares what he has learnt in the hope that others will learn from his mistakes.
This book is a wonderful tool for us all. We may not have fallen but we cannot afford to be complacent. The enemy prowls around us like a lion, waiting to pounce and devour us.
No one ever sets out to sin. We do not walk into our marriages with the intention of committing adultery. We fall into sin for a number of reasons – poor choices, we “journey down a road of poor decisions.” We need to know our weaknesses. “If you are not aware of your weaknesses and do not learn how to overcome it, it will… overcome you.” We need to establish our values. There must be a line we will not cross but there is a “gap between knowing and doing.”
We must take steps to ensure we do not fall into sin. We can read our Bibles and ask – does what I am about to do line up with God’s word and will? If it doesn’t, then don’t do it. We can pray and ask God for help. And we can have an accountability partner. Someone who loves us enough to point out our sins or potential to sin.
Stephen Mizell has been brutally honest. His honesty is refreshing. The Long Walk Back is written in an easy conversational style which engages the reader. We can all learn from this book.
Stephen Mizell writes to inform. There are reflective questions designed for self examination.
I enjoyed The Long Walk Back. Not only is it informative but it is full of hope. No matter how far we have moved from God, we can always repent and find our way back home.
Thank you Stephen Mizell for your honesty and your wisdom. May God bless you.
