Get Your Life Back by John Eldredge
Do you feel overwhelmed by the demands and distractions of modern life? Do you long for more peace, joy, and beauty in your daily routine? Do you want to restore your soul and reconnect with God?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you might benefit from reading Get Your Life Back: Everyday Practices for a World Gone Mad by John Eldredge. This book is a practical, simple, and refreshing guide to taking your life back from the chaos and stress that plague our world today.
Eldredge is a bestselling author, counselor, and teacher who has been helping people discover the heart of God and recover their own hearts for over two decades. In this book, he shares some of the practices or "graces" that he has found helpful in his own journey of soul restoration.
These practices are not complicated or time-consuming; they are easy to incorporate into your daily life and can make a big difference in how you feel and relate to God and others. Some of these practices include:
- The One Minute Pause: A simple way to pause throughout the day and invite God into your moments.
- Benevolent Detachment: A way to let go of what you can't control and trust God with the outcomes.
- Kindness: A way to treat yourself and others with compassion and grace.
- Beauty: A way to drink in the goodness and glory of God's creation.
- Unplugging: A way to reduce your exposure to technology overload and reclaim your attention.
These practices are not meant to be rigid rules or formulas; they are invitations to experience more of God's presence, love, and healing in your life. They are also flexible enough that you can adapt them to your own personality, preferences, and circumstances.
By following these practices, Eldredge promises that you will begin to recover your soul, disentangle from the tragedies of this broken world, and discover the restorative power of beauty. You will also learn how to live more fully in God's kingdom, where joy, peace, hope, and love abound.
Get Your Life Back is a timely and relevant book for anyone who feels stressed out, burned out, or worn out by life. It offers a refreshing perspective on how to live well in a world gone mad. It also reminds us that God wants us to have abundant life (John 10:10) - not just in heaven someday but here on earth right now.
