Nothing to Prove by Jennie Allen



More Pretending. No More Performing. No More Fighting to Prove Yourself.

 
Are you tired, inside and out? Are you trying your best to measure up—yet you still feel as if you’re losing ground and missing out on the best parts of life?
 
You are not alone.
 
Jennie Allen understands the daily struggle so many of us face with inadequacy and insecurity and the fear that we are not enough. And she invites us into a different experience, one in which our souls overflow with contentment and joy. In Nothing to Prove she calls us to…

* Find freedom from self-induced pressure by admitting we’re not enough—but Jesus is. 
* Stop doing things for God, and start doing things with Him. 
* Admit our greatest needs and watch them be filled by the only One who can meet them.
* Discover how God moves wildly through those who have nothing to protect and nothing to prove.
* Make it our goal to know and love Jesus, then watch what He does in and through us.
 
As you wade into the refreshing truth of the more-than-enough life Jesus offers, you’ll experience the joyous freedom that comes to those who are determined to discover what God can do through a soul completely in love with Him.


Discover the answer to your soul-deep thirst
 
Too many of us have bought into the lie that our cravings will be satisfied if we are enough and if we have enough. So we chase image, answers, things, and people—and we wonder all the while, Why am I still thirsty?
 
My single goal with this book is to lead your thirsty soul to the only source of lasting fulfillment: Jesus. He is the living water, a limitless supply that will not only quench your thirst but will fill you and then come pouring out of you into a thirsty world. 
 
Because of Him, you are loved. You are known. You can take a deep breath.
 
Because you have nothing to prove.
 
—Jennie

My Thoughts:

Let me just say, you need to pre-order this book! If you don't you will be missing something from your life that is so greatly needed in our world today. This isn't just a book, but a lifestyle. Do you ever feel like your chasing something and you keep chasing something only to find you're more empty? Do you ever feel like you're trying to prove that you are worth something? Or worthy of something? Do you have these moments where you wonder if you are believing a lie? Like the world is constantly spinning and you're spinning with it, but not finding the true bread and and living water? Then you've come to to the right place! "Nothing to Prove" by Jennie Allen dives right into the book of John where we find these beautiful moments of Jesus dealing with people's souls and changing their future. We seeing him freeing them of disease, shame, fear, all so we can look at our sitiuation to trust Jesus. We must stop. Stop striving. Stop proving. Stop moving. We must just be. Be in His presence. We must be willing to stop being something we are not. This book will just make you take a look at your life and wonder where the broken pieces are and where you need to let Jesus in. I loved this book and have it highlighted! I am so thankful to have recieved an ARC copy. Thank you to publishers for sending me copy. I give this book 5/5 stars. I was not compensated for a positive review.
