Who hasn’t felt overwhelmed at some point in time? If that describes you, this is a book to check out. It’s easy to become overwhelmed, from our own desires to impress others by trying to live up to unrealistic expectations, to illness, to so many other things. Perfection, control, worry … the list goes on and on. DiMarco reminds the reader that in those circumstances, God is still there. He doesn’t leave us to go through them alone.
In general, this book is a quick read, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not filled with lots of useful tips … because it is! The book is very relatable. The author combines personal stories with Biblical stories and scriptures, on a variety of topics. While some parts are serious, there is a lot of humor thrown in, as well. Each chapter ends with “Thoughts to Ponder,” a place that highlights the key points of the chapter. As a result, this book could work well as a small-group study.
Some of my favorite quotes are:
· “God never asks the impossible without giving us the power to do it.”
· “If I’m overwhelmed, it’s because I’m not resting in the knowledge that I’m made for His mission and not my own.”
· “Unfortunately, our desire to impress can end up being our unreasonable target to aim for.”
· “…it’s better to dive in and see the depths where God wants to take me than to remain in the shallows, afraid of the sharks.”
· “God’s mission is never interrupted and is always completed; it’s just not always completed in the ways we might expect.”
