Do You Feel Like You're Missing Something?
What if thisfeeling wasn't a bad thing? It could be a longing for more of God and acatalyst to living the life that was designed before the foundations of theearth were laid.
A lot of us, if we're honest, are afraid. We hold our dreams close to our chest. But ourpassions have a purpose-they were engineered for God's greater plan and heintends for us to use them for his glory and purposes.
In Restless, Bible teacher and fellowstruggler Jennie Allen explores practical ways to identify the threads of yourlife and how to intentionally weave them together. She explains how your gifts, passions, places, and relationships aren't random; they're deliberate andmeaningful. And your suffering-it's possible it has produced the very thing youwant to give back to the world.
Using thestory of Joseph, the dreamer, Jennie explains how his suffering, gifts, relationships-all of the threads of his life-fit into the greater story of Godand how our stories can do the same. What would happen if God got bigger thanyour fear and insecurity, and you spent the rest of your life running withoutreservation after his purposes for you? You were created for more.
