Experience the Peace and Freedom of knowing that God is in Control…and you don’t always have to be!

Are you wearing a unior God Badge? Before responding, “Absolutely not!” ask yourself the following question: “Am I T.I.R.E.D.?”

Tired of needing to control the lives of those you live.
Irritated by the neverending list of things you feel responsible for.
Resentful for being labeled a “nag” or control freak.
Exhausted by the stress of an out-of-control world.
Drained from trying to do everything yourself.

Bestselling author Jackie Kendall shows women of all ages how to rest and start enjoying their lives, trusting that God is managing the world just fine without their “post-it note” reminders. You’ll learn that hte need for control is often rooted in fear, insecurity, and lack of self-esteem—which you can overcome!

God doesn’t need your help to run the universe…or to control your world and the people in it. If you want to exchange a life of frustration and exhaustion for peace, joy, and freedom…Surrender Your Junior God Badge today!

My thoughts:
I honestly didn’t think I really needed this book. I don’t consider myself a control freak.
But after reading this I realize I am in several areas I never even knew I was trying to control. I think everyone has a bit of control issues at times in their lives.
Jackie does a great job showing the reader how when we try to control we aren’t trusting God. That isn’t a place we want to be.
I love this sentences from p. 60: “God’s grace is available for time of need only, not for the tormented hypothetical time of need. God’s grace is available and sufficient for today.”
Oh my, I definitely make up a lot of hypothetical times of need and this is not okay. God’s grace is all we need for today.
Whether you think you try to control things or not this is book you might want to pick up and get some truth spoken into you.
