The unmistakable touch of grace

Just started reading this spirituality book by Cheryl Richardson that was recommended to me by my intuitive. I'm in a bit of reading slump these days, so even though it wouldn't be my first choice, I'm giving it a shot because there must be some divine reason that I am supposed to read this book. Or is there? Am I just replacing one religion with another? Putting my destiny in the hand of the unknown is part of what's turned me off of religion, so why am I looking for it under a different name? Try to have an open mind D. These passages are good for starters:

You are not alone. There is a powerful, supportive energy guiding your life and it always has your best interest at heart. When you call upon it for guidance and support, it will respond. Spiritual signposts will be put in your path to guide you to your highest good. Follow them!
You have a higher purpose for your life. The more you surrender to the Divine will and allow grace to lead, the more you’ll find that the right doors open to support you in fulfilling your life’s purpose. You’ll learn to recognize and respond to them. Walk through those doors with courage and faith.
You have what it takes to face any life challenge. As a human being you will experience loss, disappointment, failure, and fear. But you don’t have to suffer. As a matter of fact, your most challenging life circumstance may turn out to be your greatest blessing. Your reliance on the power of grace will give you the faith and spiritual fortitude to face life’s ups and downs with confidence and poise.
You are a student in the school of life. As you view your life from a higher, more spiritual perspective, you’ll begin to see that everything happens for a reason. Every event, experience, and person you encounter is intended to support your soul development. Take advantage of these opportunities.
You have the peace and happiness you desire already within you. When you deepen your connection to the Divine by balancing activity with silence, you’ll discover the true source of all joy and happiness. You’ll experience a heightened sensitivity to beauty, deep inner peace, and a profound feeling of connectedness to all living things. Enjoy these gifts.
