From the back cover: God created you for exceptional impact. Exceptional power. And exceptional blessings.
The Bible tells us that God is able to do above and beyond what we can ask for or imagine. So why do we rarely dream big dreams, think big thoughts, or expect God to do great things through us?
Gwen Smith knows how easy it is to dismiss God’s plans with the thoughts, I can’t make a big difference for God because I’m just an ordinary woman with an ordinary life. Yet God created us to join Him in doing amazing work in the world. He created us to live with abundant joy, courage, and influence. But not the joy, courage, and influence of the world. He offers His grace for each failure, His love that shatters hate, His peace that soothes the turmoil, His comfort, guidance, wisdom, rest, power, and significance. Every blessing He has for us is ours for the taking.
I Want It All will ignite a fire in your heart to experience more faith, more power, and more impact. More of Jesus. All of Jesus. Everything that God has for you.
It is time to change our way of thinking. God has given it all to us and has made Himself available to us at His disposal. Yet we do not take Him for the great God that He is and allow ourselves to walk in ordinary shoes. The thing about walking ordinary is that we feel the loss. We look ahead and have these dreams that we long to fulfill but we haven’t the ability because we have been limiting God. Gwen Smith has looked for answers on how we allow God to be God and this book is her response. She does it in three parts. Part One: All The Faith, Part Two: All The Power, Part Three: All The Impact. Each chapter is designed to focus our attention on God with each chapter ending with “For Your Reflection and Response”. At the end of the book is a chapter by chapter study guide. This book, if you really let it, will have you running closer to God and doing all sorts of new things. I also believe that this book will be a great gift to give to friends and family so that they can experience the change as well. I recommend this book highly.
