Why We Can Stop Trying So Hard

By Jennie Allan


The main theme of this is, “Why am I still thirsty?” Because people are seeking everything BUT Jesus! With Jesus we have nothing to prove. He loves us unconditionally. We all think that we are not good enough, brave enough, smart enough, and the list goes on… but God says with Him we are enough!  One phrase that she used stood out to me. “We cannot do this ourselves. We have to be saved.”  God has so much planned for our lives if we would just focus on Him and let Him use us. This is so hard for our physical nature. We are moms, wives, friends, sisters… we are always feeling not enough. This book is Jennie telling her story how God convicted her and used her to be so much more than she felt that she was able to become. There is a Note’s section at the back of the book that gives you Bible passages to relate to each chapter. I see at the back of the book that there will be a study guide that will go along with this book in April. I do think this book would be good for a group to go over and read it together. This book would be good also for those looking to realize they are Good Enough! You can find a book club from her website. This is a hard back book with the pretty print on a dust cover. Once you  remove the dust cover you have a plain navy book. I think it would been fun to have it on the actual book. I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review
