It's Not Over by Joshua Gagnon


About It’s Not Over: Leaving Behind Disappointment and Learning to Dream Again

Paperback: 224 pages
Publisher: Thomas Nelson (February 25, 2020)
Disappointed with your life? Worried you’ll never achieve your dreams? Don’t be discouraged; it’s not over!
As children, we dream of someday being a superhero or an astronaut, a parent or a business owner, an actress or a sports star. The more outrageous the dream, the more sure we are that it will happen! Yet as we mature, hardships, hurts, and failures chip away at our dreams. Our past longings can seem like the naive wishes of childhood instead of the foundation of the life we were meant to live.
In It’s Not Over, pastor Joshua Gagnon, founder of the Next Level Church network, reminds us that we were born to dream—and to dream big. In fact, our dreams have the power to shape our lives. Join Joshua in discovering the answers to these questions and many more:
  • How does dreaming help you discover your purpose?
  • How do you identify whether a dream is even worth chasing?
  • How do you overcome resistance, criticism, and doubt?
  • How do you pray bold prayers when you don’t feel like praying at all?
  • How do you finish strong on the journey toward your dream?
If you find yourself minimizing your dreams or feeling defeated by inner or outer resistance, there is good news: it’s not over! As long as you have breath in your lungs, God has a dream for you to chase. It’s what you were created for. And you can start today.

My Thoughts:
It's Not Over is the perfect book for anyone who has a God size dream in their heart. Whether the dream is something new or you've given up on your dream, this book is for you. The size of your dream doesn't matter, but as long as it comes from the heart of God, it will come into fruition. 
With practical advice, this book will have the reader nodding their head and highlighting paragraphs. This book is simple, yet thought provoking for the reader. I found myself thinking about my God size dream and asking myself questions, as I read through this book. It gave me practical advice on how I can pursue my God-given dream, especially in a difficult time in our world, where we are focused on COVID-19. This book brought me life and encouragement. I highly recommend picking up a copy today.
