Nothing to Prove: Why We Can Stop Trying So Hard by Jennie AllenAll too many of us struggle under the weight of life, convinced we need to work harder to prove to ourselves, to others, and to God that we are good enough, smart enough, and spiritual enough to do the things we believe we should.
Author and Bible teacher Jennie Allen invites us into a different experience, one in which our souls overflow with contentment and joy. In Nothing to Prove she calls us to...
* Find freedom from self-induced pressure by admitting were not enough--but Jesus is.
* Admit our greatest needs and watch them be filled by the only One who can meet them.
* Make it our goal to know and love Jesus, then watch what He does in and through us.
Jennie Allen: I Am Not Enough (James Robison / LIFE Today)
Nothing to Prove
As women, we tend to be hard on ourselves. We put a lot of expectations on ourselves and interpret criticism in a way that [adds pressure]. We all want to be good leaders; we want to be good friends; we want to be good wives or moms; we want to be faithful to God. For the last few years, I have led a major organization, and only a couple of years before I was a stay-at-home mom. It was a big leap to become a CEO of a growing organization.
Cancel anytime. A practical plan to identify the threads of your life and how to intentionally weave them together for God's glory and purposes. Restless explores the fact that God has called us all to do great things in his name, and then helps us discover what that might mean for each of us individually. In her best-selling books Anything and Restless , Jennie Allen challenged women to fully surrender their lives to God and then offered a process to uncover and understand the raw materials he had given them. Now, those two concepts have been combined to create a day journey for women to pursue God and find the deepest yearnings of their heart fulfilled. This step-by-step process, to fully surrender to God and then identify the threads of gifts, passions, places, relationships, and sufferings in your life, is not to get what you want but to find what God wants of you. Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected.
