The first thing that's helpful about this book is that it demonstrates that Godly believers can and will go through tough times of testing.
I appreciate that the Lord wanted others, like me, to know that I am walking the same road as these tried-and-tested Christians.
When I read the first few chapters, I tended to feel jealousy or envy of Glynda, cuz she heard directly and clearly from the Lord regarding what she was to do and what to expect, etc.I compared myself to her, as someone that doesn't get clear "words" or specific guidance for my path, and felt that I was "missing out".
But then, I gradually noticed that despite these clear words, letting her know that He was taking care of her, and what He planned to do, etc., and always admonishing her not to be fearful, and not to complain about her circumstances (i.e., indulge in self-pity), she nevertheless seemed to completely forget those words and those amazing things He had done for her, and became fearful, anxious, and all those other difficult emotions one could expect when one's world is being taken away from them.
Throughout, her premise seemed to remain intact--namely, that she must not lose her truck, she must not become homeless, and must not be forced to lose her "lifestyle", i.e., living in a house with her things all around.
Of course, I couldn't help sympathizing with her potential plight, picturing how hard it would be for a single woman to become a "street-person"; I would probably resist that all the way too.
So, the fact that she was in a sense no different from the Israelites-seeing God do many miracles for them, but still complaining and accusing God of abandoning them, etc, made me feel like we are all in the same boat; we can't seem to live off of "yesterday's manna"; every day we need God to save us from ourselves. And even if I did get clear guidance and information from the Lord, I would probably also forget about it and continue to believe that I don't really belong to God, etc.(and all of those lies from satan).
I would love to some day have the kind of faith that would move mountains, but in the meantime, I am still having to reassure myself every day that "God is at work within (me), both to will and to do of His good pleasure" (phil 2:13).
I don't know whether or not Glynda ever reached that level of faith-walking, cuz she ends the story rather abruptly, not letting us know how things turned out. Perhaps subsequent editions could have an update and what she's learned since then.
Of course, you can go to her website and see that she is ministering to The Church, so that gives you an idea of where her life is now.
One small thing that bothered me when I listened to her video on her latest update, she mentioned that she was having a tough time getting to the prophetic words that people had requested of her, and she said that she made sure she did the ones for the people that had sent her money. I though to myself, "if the Lord has a word for someone and wants to use Glynda, I would think it wouldn't matter whether or not they've paid her". Perhaps she just thought those people should be her "priorities", although I would have more appreciated her giving words for the people the Lord told her should get them. Afterall, she does seem to hear from Him. So, why the inconsistency?
