Overextended and Loving Most of It By Lisa Harper


Overextended and Loving Most of It 
By Lisa Harper
‘The Unexpected Joy of Being Harried, Heartbroken, and Hurling Oneself Off Cliffs’

Rating: 3 Stars

Would you consider your life stretched to the limit? Lately I feel like I'm being pulled in one too many directions. There’s always a lot to do…. yard work, gardening, schooling, cleaning, cooking, animals to take care of, business appointments, errands to run, kids that need me…. the emotional effects of a special needs son and the exhaustion that comes with having cancer…… life doesn’t seem to slow down.

In this book, Lisa shows us that it is possible for us to glorify the Lord, even if we are frazzled and overextended. Even in the middle of our own hectic schedules, it is only by resting in God’s mercy that we are able to keep risking our hearts to serve his people and fulfill the callings he has placed on us.

"Real" life . . ."abundant" life . . . godly" life is about loving Jesus and the people he allows us to rub shoulders with well which means some days you’ll be stretched emotionally and physically. You’ll feel overextended. Thankfully God will expand our hearts and calendars to accommodate the calling.”
If you are looking for a great read, my all time favorite book from Lisa Harper is Stumbling Into Grace!
