Litfuse Review: A Woman Overwhelmed by:Haley Dimarco

 A Woman Overwhelmed: Finding God in the Messes of Life
About the Book:
"A Woman Overwhelmed" is a phrase with which many women can relate. But what would happen if we could see the insanity in our pace and embrace our overwhelming God?

There is a reason they say that a woman's work is never done-- because it isn't! As women, we often are overwhelmed by the demands and circumstances of life, resulting in stress, fear, worry, impatience, fatigue, frustration, and even depression. The truth is that we were created to be overwhelmed . . . not by life but by God! When we learn to be overwhelmed by God, the fruit in our lives goes from rotten to fragrant--filling our days with peace, hope, love, and joy.

In A Woman Overwhelmed, best-selling author Hayley DiMarco shares biblical insights and personal stories to offer a glimpse at the comedy of an overwhelmed life while encouraging us to discover the depths and heights of God's love and power.

Be empowered to find freedom in becoming overwhelmed with who God is--by learning to focus on what we know about God so that we can hold onto faith even when it seems that all is lost. For it is when an overwhelmed woman gives up the mission of me and exchanges it for the mission of God that being overwhelmed becomes a good thing.

Choose to bask in the abundance of the Father instead of the abundance of life as his unfathomable depths can surely replace our fathomable messes.


My Review:
 God is my mainstay. He sees me through when this world and its people fail and He always will. Women get the short end of the stick really. They are called to be the submissive ones yet they are the ones that get the brunt of other peoples theories and demands. And while most days we are able to shoulder the load--some days explode in our faces and in the faces of the ones we love.

 Sometimes it takes our faith to continue on down a road that we feel has lost its luster or that maybe the course changed and we aren't too happy about it. But we have to continue anyway for the sake of our family. It takes God in those terrible times and in those struggles just to take the next breath.

 Many of us freak out and then address the problem but with God's help and His strength we can avoid freak out mode. Haley has given us a gold nugget of truth. examine yourself so that you can see the areas that need God the most and maybe just maybe you will start to see why you need to lose control sometimes. If we let God save us when we know for a fact we can't save ourselves--we might actually get some things done.

 A great way to examine God's greatest creation----MYSELF!
