So often we get caught up in our daily grind and we seem to forget that God is right there next to us, plugging along with us, keeping us company and helping us with the day-to-day business of our very livelihood. Chad reminds us that God isn't waiting to shower us with blessings when we do well, get something right, or have a major epiphany. Instead, God is covered in the dirt and grime of our daily affairs, helping us get through all the little things to get from one day to the next.
Relating stories that he's encountered throughout his own journey, Chad shows us how to find God in the lowest and seemingly Godforsaken places, as well as through the hearts and actions of the unnamed saints of this world.
For anyone who's grown weary of the perfect church and the image of an ideal Christian, or for those who feel covered in the grime of daily life, Your God Is Too Glorious is a refreshing reminder that God doesn't just sit around waiting for us to get clean enough to be His witnesses - instead, He gets down in the mud and dirt with us and helps us to keep our heads above water. 4/5 stars.
