Out of a Dream by Rosemary Hines

I recently read an interesting book by Rosemary Hines. The subject matter captured my attention because it could have been written about me. There were times when I dabbled with New Age spiritualism and thought, "What's the harm?" 

The Bible says, we cannot serve two Gods and that there will be no gods before the one true God. Period. Some of the things I was learning taught reliance on self. Making yourself the god of your life. And that's wrong.

There's nothing wrong with a healthy dose of confidence, but our strength should come from the Lord. Simply because everything we have and are, comes from Him. Here is a little about the book.

Out of a Dream
Rosemary Hines
This story is one that could be told about any one of us. The occult disguised as New Age is a lure that can be hard to resist. While many of us are searching, as the character in this book, for something to fill our void. It's easy to fall into the trap of Spiritual enlightenment via the New Age movement.

This based-on a true story begins with Michelle who is a happily married woman who is subtly lured into the new age world. As the story progresses, we see that she needs more to fill the ever-increasing void she feels and is lead away from the things she values. When tragedy strikes her family, her new-age spirituality is not enough to give her the peace she longs for.

Rosemary's story gives us a glimpse into what can happen once we've opened the door to trying to find God in things that are not of God.

Rosemary, Thanks for sharing this story.
