As believers, we are often reluctant to admit there are things we cannot change. We wrestle and struggle to figure out how we can regain control, or we try to rationalize and understand why things happened. We pray. We expect God to change the situation. Yet over time when nothing happens, we find that we have been robbed of our inner peace and joy.
In Not My Will, author Brenda Poinsett shares the life-transforming lessons she learned from Jesus’ prayer life, practical lessons that have carried her and others through a range of unchangeable moments. Her unique perspective gives readers special encouragement as she answers the question, How do you pray about something you can’t change?
In this book, regardless of your situation—job loss, personal limitations, terminal illness, or even the death of a loved one—you can learn how to come to terms with things that can’t be changed by looking at Jesus from His baptism to the Cross. Specifically, Brenda takes an in-depth look at the prayer of Jesus. Each chapter includes:
- a significant quote that captures the essence of the chapter and sets the tone
- a reflective exercise for application
- a sample prayer
