I know I’m not the only woman who struggles with living the life right in front of me. Often I live looking forward to the day when things will be “normal” again – whatever that means. I think, “if I can just get through these next few weeks, then things will get better.” And yet, I’m missing out on the life that I have right now.
Life is messy. It feels like I can never keep up. And I so desperately want to live my life well.
These are just a few of the reasons why the title of this book caught my attention. I had to know if this Alexandra Kuykendall had found the answers to the question I’ve been asking myself. How can I live my life well?
If you’re like me, you had your life all planned out since childhood. You knew what you were going to do, when you were going to do it, and where you would be when you reached the age you are now. And, if you’re like me, you’ve discovered that life doesn’t work like that.
Welcome to the journey to Becoming what God wants you to be.
Jenny Simmons has been there too. Her book The Road to Becoming is full of rich examples of how God worked through her life, despite her plans. Do you need a dose of encouragement today? Are you feeling broken?
This book is for you!
Stop trying to be perfect.
Stop it right now!
I’ve lived my life trying to be perfect – always doing the right thing, anticipating what others want me to be and do before they can ask. Let me tell you, it is exhausting and very wrong. God doesn’t expect us to be perfect. He loves us as we are – even the messy parts.
We believe those things in principle, but practice is harder. After all, how can God not expect the best from us? How can He not want us to do everything in our power to be the very best person and Christian we can be?
