I want it All
God created you for exceptional impact. Exceptional power. And exceptional blessings.
Gwen Smith knows how easy it is to dismiss God’s plans with the thoughts, I can’t make a big difference for God because I’m just an ordinary woman with an ordinary life. Yet God created us to join Him in doing amazing work in the world. He created us to live with abundant joy, courage, and influence. But not the joy, courage, and influence of the world. He offers His grace for each failure, His love that shatters hate, His peace that soothes the turmoil, His comfort, guidance, wisdom, rest, power, and significance. Every blessing He has for us is ours for the taking.
I Want It All will ignite a fire in your heart to experience more faith, more power, and more impact. More of Jesus. All of Jesus. Everything that God has for you.
My thoughts: I needed this book! It is a great reminder that we were called to a life of so much more. To embrace those big dreams. I love how Gwen reminds readers of God's love and grace, which should enable us to reach for all He has for us. I'm making this sound like some kind of cheesy motivational book, but it isn't, since Gwen is very real as she writes and connects with the reader, sharing their trials as a family and how there are blessings in trials. Sometimes, I think we expect life to be easy as Christians, but this book was a great reminder to me to have joy when times are tough.
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
