Publisher's Description

Without proper respect for ourselves, we don’t really live connected with God and others the way God has designed.
During fourteen years of pastoral ministry Trinity Jordan has walked with a lot of people through their struggles. What he has noticed is that THIS is really about THAT in their lives. The THAT is almost always rooted in insecurity. Our unlove, lack of confidence, and acceptance of ourselves have alienated us from God and others. When Jesus says the greatest commandment is to love God and love others as we love ourselves--the key in that verse is us loving ourselves. Insecurity sabotages the abundant life God has for us here on earth.
 
Sabotage deals with the root issues behind our insecurities, including comparing ourselves with others, lies we tell ourselves, discontent, and more. Addressing these issues will result in healthy relationships across the board--coworkers, church members, spouses, children, strangers, friends, family, and GOD.

    This review was written for Sabotage: How Insecurity Destroys Everything.
    "Insecurity lives deep inside each of us, " Trinity writes, "and it slowly corrodes the fabric of our self-image, our relationship with one another, and our relationship with God." (xxi)

    His attempt in this book is to help us live out the freedom God intends for us. Understanding and accepting God's supreme sovereignty in our lives is key. If we trust God with every fiber of who we are, by the work of the Spirit, we will see the sabotage of insecurity negated in the end.

    Trinity wrestles with identity questions. His aim is for us to finally realize who we are and are meant to be. He uses the example of Jacob, insecure and pretending to be someone else. The lesson learned is that it is not about us. It is about God. He encourages us to stop comparing ourselves with others but instead get our focus on God. We need to stop thinking this world is fair. He explores activities we add to our life, trying to deal with the insecurities. Those things will not free us. That freedom can be found only in the giver of life, Jesus.

    Trinity writes, "I wish I could tell you the steps to take once Jesus intersects with your life, but that is the point of all this - you can't do anything. It is Jesus doing a miracle-working power in your life." (138) But then he gives suggestions as to how to receive the life Jesus offers. We are to surround ourselves with those who speak and teach about Jesus. "Learn, read, and listen to everything Jesus said. Pray - day and night - to God. Care about what God cares about. Rejoice in what God rejoices for. Mourn for what God mourns for." (141) So it would seem we can do something after all!

    Trinity suggests, "We slowly start to trust God in areas of our lives and slowly start to follow God." (149) It's "just a long, complicated story of walking with God over a continuous period." (149) We'll experience bumps and bruises on the way of slowly trusting God. It is a slow process but does happen. Focusing on God and turning over one area of life after another is what makes the change. We will become who God made us to be.

    I did not find this book to be profound. It's OK. Perhaps I have this feeling because I am a senior citizen and have gone through most of what Trinity writes about. For someone young who is facing deep insecurities, this would be an encouraging book. I think it would best be read with someone else so the concepts could be discussed. Unfortunately there are no discussion questions included even though it would be a good topic for a small group.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
