Do you ever find yourself “caving in” to the overwhelming decisions and pressures around you? I’ve been there a time or two. Women often find themselves keeping pace with society’s demands of success and its unattainable standards of perfection. More often than not, this leads to an underwhelmed soul sinking in the weariness of this world. Perhaps you feel this way. It’s time to make a change.
In her book, Enough About Me, Jen Oshman beautifully addresses the core issue of the underwhelmed soul that often plagues women today. It’s a lack of joy. However, the solution is not more planning, scheduling, self-care, or rising the corporate ladder. While these things offer temporary order, sanity, and a few moments of relief, they alone will never offer the abundant life that Christ offers.
We often make the mistake of viewing life through our own “foggy lens.” When we do this, we struggle to live authentic lives. The truth is that life is often messy and imperfect. Maintaining a false reality only leads to hopelessness and a lack of joy. Living life as who He says we are rather than who we think we are produces radical change and a desire to live life for Christ.
Jen walks readers through practical steps to relinquish the burdens that pull our focus away from God and His blessings for our lives. The more we dive deeply into cultivating a relationship with Christ, our focus shifts off of what Christ does for us and onto our walk with Him. Only through abiding in Christ can we truly experience true joy as we seek to serve Him and make Him known to the world.
