Bittersweet: Thoughts on Change, Grace, and Learning the Hard Way

#ad
Zondervan #ad - Bitter is what makes us strong, what forces us to push through, what helps us earn the lines on our faces and the calluses on our hands. It can show us who we’ve become, in the worst ways, and also in the best ways. And when life is bitter, say thank you, and grow. ”. The idea of bittersweet is changing the way I live, unraveling and re-weaving the way I understand life.

Bittersweet is courageous, audacious, gutsy, earthy. This is what i’ve come to believe about change: it’s good, and heartbreak is good, in the way that childbirth is good, and failure is good. Sweet is nice enough, but bittersweet is beautiful, nuanced, full of depth and complexity. I’ve learned the hard way that change is one of God’s greatest gifts, and most useful tools.

Change can push us, pull us, rebuke and remake us. I’ve learned that it’s not something to run away from, change is a function of God’s graciousness, as though we could, and that in many cases, not life’s cruelty. Niequist, sometimes challenging, a keen observer of life with a lyrical voice, writes with the characteristic warmth and honesty of a dear friend: always engaging, but always with a kind heart.

Bittersweet: Thoughts on Change, Grace, and Learning the Hard Way #ad - Bittersweet is the idea that in all things there is both something broken and something beautiful, a shadow of hope in every heartbreak, that there is a moment of lightness on even the darkest of nights, and that rejoicing is no less rich even when it contains a splinter of sadness. By that i mean that it’s incredibly painful, and also that it has the potential to open you up, which is where you wanted to be all long, to open life up, exponentially more so if you fight it, to deliver you right into the palm of God’s hand, except that you were too busy pushing and pulling your life into exactly what you thought it should be.

You Are the Girl for the Job: Daring to Believe the God Who Calls You

#ad
Zondervan #ad - This is the straight-up truth god has proclaimed over your life from the beginning, and it's not dependent on what you can do or achieve but based on His power, capacity, and character. It has taken one million, maybe one zillion who knows?!, slight moves of His hand to place you in this exact moment. It has everything to do with believing we are who God says we are, and quieting any inferior word spoken against us.

So let this book be your very good news: you don't have to wait for permission when you've already been commissioned. With passion and heart-pumping hope, Jess shows that being the girl for the job doesn't depend on your capacity. Life is too short to get stuck in a holding pattern of shame, self-doubt, and comparison.

You Are the Girl for the Job: Daring to Believe the God Who Calls You #ad - You believe or want to believe god has called you and given you purpose, but where do you start? How do you get from feeling stuck to making a move? If this sounds familiar, bestselling author Jess Connolly has a message for you: You Are the Girl for the Job. But this is not simply a peppy catchphrase.

So forget about fear and second-guessing your gifts, because God has meticulously prepared you to be an ambassador for the Kingdom right where you are, here and now. Rather, it has everything to do with God's capacity and our willingness. Are you ready? let this book be your jumpstart into confident, purposed living, and finally, as Jess walks you through the six steps she has used to coach and encourage women for years: set your focus, face your fear, take stock of the story that has shaped you, make a plan, catch the vision, make your move--all in the bold belief that God has called you to every step of the journey.
