Crash The Chatterbox blew me away. Steven Furtick's willingness
Crash The Chatterbox blew me away. Steven Furtick's willingness to share his own moments of weakness is refreshing to see in a pastor. In this book I was challenged in my very thought process to quit ending the sentence at 'What if?' He shows that by listening to the promises of God and who God says we are, we have the ability to conquer our fears and self-perceived limitations. This isn't a one time victory we can accomplish, but a practice we must work at continually. I am very thankful God has used Pastor Furtick to show me how even my past failures that may have made me felt too ashamed to try again, can actually be used as tools to sow seed! If you've ever had self-doubts or had trouble dealing with the voices that say you can't do something, this is definitely the book for you!

At it's core, "Chatterbox" is about the negativity that we sometimes poison ourselves with. We allow the voices of panic, opposition, blame and anxiety to speak to us instead of being shaped by the true voice of God. Most of us don't have to wait for the devil to attack us - because we do a fine job of self-abuse on our own. Chatterbox addresses how to switch from listening to the lies your mind tells you to listening to the voice of God.
Jesus says plainly in John 10 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.
Through 4 affirming truths, Furtick tackles each lie one at a time
1. God says "I am." (insecurity)
2. God says "He will." (fear)
3. God says "He has." (condemnation)
4. God says "I can." (discouragement)
Furtick writes a very easy to read book that contains plenty of real life examples from his own life as well as questions in the back for group studies.
Thank you to Multnomah press for this preview copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
