I was so excited to have the opportunity to review Always Enough, Never Too Much by Jess Connolly & Hayley Morgan. Iâ€™m always looking for a good devotional book to keep me encouraged. There are 100 devotions to quit comparing, stop hiding & start living wild and free. The first thing that stood out to me about the book is that itâ€™s a flip book with built in bookmarks to hold your place in each section. I kept flipping back and forth in between sections depending on my mood and where I felt I needed to focus.
Iâ€™ll be honest I spent a lot of time in Never Too Much because I know I have a strong personality, very opinionated, no filter, too analytical, passionate and can be a little extra. God bless my REAL friends because they get â€œJen Uncutâ€ and love me for exactly who I am. They know Iâ€™m not capable of being phony and biting my tongue. My emotions are written all over my face and I usually say exactly what Iâ€™m thinking. Iâ€™m working on my delivery thoughâ€¦ The struggle!
Iâ€™m at a point in my life where EVERYTHING is changing. Change use to scare me but, now I try to look at it in a positive light. Transformation can be a good thing. In my current journey Iâ€™m choosing to stay as positive as can be, pray diligently and arm myself with daily affirmations and devotions. Once Iâ€™ve read a devotion based on how I may be feeling at the moment, I immediately feel relieved and get a sense of peace. It can be challenging to be positive 24/7, sometimes you need some reassurance and help.
One of my favorite devotions in Always Enough isâ€¦ Even When Life Is Falling Apart by Jess. Verse: He said to me, â€œMy grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.â€ Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christâ€™s power may rest on me. -2 Corinthians 12:9. Highlight: Our weakness felt so incredibly overwhelming, but still there was this promise that our weakness wasnâ€™t in vain. Rather, it would help us access the power of God.
That devotion was so powerful to me. Jess reminds us that we are enough even in the brokenness because â€œHeâ€ is in us. And the only reason weâ€™ll be enough on brighter, easier, tidier days is because â€œHeâ€ is in us. And thatâ€™s some good news. I know that no one will ever truly be able to empathize with me unless theyâ€™ve been where I am. That being said, I donâ€™t turn to man for answers and comfort with my emotional struggles. I give it to God and work on healing my brokenness. Devotions help a lot!
Overall Always Enough, Never Too Much is a great read. Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan, bestselling authors of Wild and Free will help you replace those lies with God’s truth.
