Because you were made for more–a review of “Restless”


RestlessDo you have the feeling you are missing something?  Are you longing for more out of life, or do you have dreams that are yearning to be fulfilled?  Joseph had a dream.  When his immaturity go the best of him, it set off a string of events that led to both suffering and blessing.  His suffering produced the very thing he had dreamed about.

“Restless” takes the story of Joseph and shows how everything he suffered and all of his gifts and relationships were the threads that fit into God’s greater story.  What would happen if we believed this was the way God worked in our lives?  Jennie Allen gives us permission to hold on to our dreams and encourages us to dream our dreams and follow through with what God is showing us through them.

Allen is encouraging and uplifting.  She is passionate about her calling and wants others to be passionate about theirs.  I recently had the privilege of reviewing her Bible study, “Restless“, which condenses the book down to its basic premise, and the book is a wonderful companion to the study as it expounds on her message of living our God-given dreams.
