MAITLAND, Fla., Oct. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Based on 1 Peter 1:7 in the Bible, Novlette Gooden-Castillo's new book, REFINING FOR HIS GLORY: A 60 DAY JOURNEY WITH THE REFINER ($15.49, paperback, 9781628390186; $9.99, e-book, 9781628390193) expounds on the "refining" that occurs among believers. Readers are invited to examine their hearts and true motives. As silver and gold is refined in the fire to remove the impurities, so too, God is refining that person through the flames of affliction or suffering to separate, cleanse, purify and regenerate his or her soul and mind.
"[This book] takes a hard look at the truth that we cannot be transformed into the image of Christ without embracing the cross," states the author. "…Unless we allow God to refine us, we cannot be vessels fit for his honor and glory. It demonstrates how God pursues us fallen mankind because he loves us and desires an intimate relationship with us."
Novlette Gooden-Castillo, a native of Jamaica, has been writing Christian devotionals for over five years through "Wise Women Circle," "Light For Our Path," as well as "Daughters Of The King Ministry" (DOTK), of which she is the ministry leader. Now she would like to share these devotionals with a wider audience in hopes that God will use them to bless every person who reads them. She adds, "I am learning every day that God desires that we come to Him not only when we are in trouble or need but come whenever, just as I am, because He is everything I will ever need. I have found the One that satisfies every longing in my soul and He is available to anyone, anywhere, who will seek after Him."
