I hope you live a life you’re proud of.  If you find that you are not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.         -F. Scott Fitzgerald

This quote is taken from the new book by Shauna Niequist, Present Over Perfect – Leaving Behind Frantic For a Simpler, More Soulful Way of Living.

I heard Shauna speak at the She Speaks 2016 Conference in North Carolina a few weeks.  I have also done one of her Bible studies.  But this book has been the most powerful thing yet for me!

If you are living a crazy, unsettling, busy, unwanted life, then I recommend Shauna’s book.  She talks about living to please the world; living with stress and busyness and looking for peace and rest.  There is no peace or rest outside of God’s Spirit.  Thank goodness we can find it in the arms of Jesus.

John 16:33 – I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world!

Starting over.  Leaving behind the old.  Seeking Christ…  ahhhhhhhh  peace.
