On the cover flap of this book, the copy reads: "As you are, right at this moment, God loves you. There is nothing you can do to make God love you more. There is nothing you can do to make God love you less." It's easy to agree that these statements are true, and yet it is still so easy to fall into "performance-based thinking" (my words).
In Let Go, Sheila Walsh wants to help women get free of the burdens that can press down on our shoulders, and she does a good job of it. I'm happy to recommend the book to my blog readers.
Here's the book blurb:
Burdened. The word alone makes shoulders sink. It slows down our
lives. It clouds our vision. It is the result of so many memories,
grudges, fears, uncertainty, and stress. It is heavy.
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you
rest." (Matt 11:28)
Overworked? Overcommitted? Overtired? Underappreciated?
Let go and live free.
Sound impossible? Sheila Walsh thought so – until God proved himself
again and again through his Word, his people, and her life.
In Let Go, the bestselling author and speaker walks readers through
the journey to freedom in Christ. Along the way, she tackles some of the
toughest struggles that weigh women down, answering them with
overwhelming truth, promise, and hope.
You can lay down your burdens. You can rest. You can find peace. You
can live free.
Start here. Let Go. And see what God can do.
