Publisher's Summary

Are you holding on so tightly that God can't work in your life? In this revision of her best-selling book, Lisa shows listeners how to give God complete control of their lives. Lisa's life was a whirlwind of turmoil until she realized that things ended up in a mess whenever she was in charge. Women of all ages can reflect on some of the following topics: Are you tired of pretending to be strong when you're living in fear? Don't tolerate harassment for another moment. Receive your affirmation, love, self-worth, joy, strength, and acceptance only from God. Lay down your desires, and hide yourself in his will.

Let go and discover the freedom and peace of God intended you to have.

Exactly what I needed...

This book was eye opening! Even if you feel you aren’t ready to commit yourself fully, you’ll still benefit tremendously by Lisa’s personal journeys and biblical scriptures.

listening to this gave my soul life

So at first, I really didn't want to listen to this book since I really didn't want to give God control of my life or anything around me. I was so hurt by many people and myself that I thought taking control of everything was right thing to do, however, after listening to this book has helped me think about a lot of things. I definite relate to when Lisa went though a lonely season that she really didn't have to go through. Before this book, I didn't realized that I didn't have to go through a season of loneliness that I could have avoid if I trusted God instead of walking in hurt. So listening to this book has allowed God to come in my heart even more than before. Although it feels scary, I do know for sure that I will overcome by the Blood of Jesus.

Amazing Book!

This was such a helpful book to me. I am so glad that it was available on Audible! Otherwise, I may have not have been able to finish it. The book gets better and deeper as you go, and I like that she has questions at the end of each chapter so you can reflect personally. My favorite chapter is the one about swimming. I believe it is the last one.

Encouraging

I didn't know what to make of the title but I knew I needed to read it, as most of us 'I'm a control freak '.
Since listening and opening my heart to God's word my burdens have been taken and Peace is returning to my heart and Soul.
