Are you feeling overextended or stretched to your limit? Well Lisa Harper’s new book, Overextended and Loving Most of It is the book for you. In this wonderful tool for us busy bodies, Lisa shows us how to still glorify God while we are running ourselves raged.
This book was written with me in mind, I sometimes feel that there isn’t enough hours in the day to get everything I need to get done and still have time for God. Lisa packed a punch and stepped on my toes. Not only did I just finish this book but I had the opportunity to see Lisa during the Women of Faith conference. All I can say is wear still toed boots or your toes will hurt.
Lisa uses her own life stories from adoptions, to family deaths, to disappointments to help you understand how being overextended can still be a godly thing. She explains how to thrive in tense times and still have a blast. Blast stands for B for breathing, L for listening, A for asking, S for smiling, and T for taking the next step. Just breath by inhaling God’s peace and exhale anxiety and listen because God gives us specific directions even amidst our chaos, followed by asking God for clarity, remember to smile even when we know we can’t, and finally just take the last step or just jump right in, don’t turn back.
We will have painful times in our lives and not everything will work its self out, but we have to remember that God is in control and remember when you find yourself complaining to “Stop and Give Me Ten!!!” You will need to read the book to understand what that means!!!
