A lot of us, if we're honest, are afraid. We hold our dreams close to our chest. But our passions have a purpose--they were engineered for God's greater plan and he intends for us to use them for his glory and purposes.
Do you feel like you're missing something? What if this feeling wasn't a bad thing? It could be a longing for more of God and a catalyst to living the life that was designed before the foundations of the earth were laid.
In Restless, Bible teacher and fellow struggler Jennie Allen:
- Explores practical ways to identify the threads of your life
- How to intentionally weave those threads together
- Explains how your gifts, passions, places, and relationships aren't random; they're deliberate and meaningful
- Speaks the truth about your suffering: it's possible it has produced the very thing you want to give back to the world
Using the story of Joseph, the dreamer, Jennie explains how his suffering, gifts, relationships--all of the threads of his life--fit into the greater story of God and how our stories can do the same. What would happen if God got bigger than your fear and insecurity, and you spent the rest of your life running without reservation after his purposes for you? You were created for more.
To dive deeper into the Restless message, additional resources such as a DVD study and leader/participant guide books are available.
