Have you bought the lie? Many of us do. We measure our worth by what others think of us. We compare and strive, existing mostly for the approval of others. Pressure rises, anxiety creeps in and we hustle to keep up.
Jesus whispers, I gave my life to set you free. I gave you purpose. I called you to live in freedom in that purpose. Yet we still hobble through life, afraid to confess all the ways we push against this truth, because we cant even believe it. We continue to grasp for the approval of anyone that will offer it: whether strangers, friends, or community.
Christ doesnt say you can be or may be or will be free. He says you are free.
Dare you believe it?
In You Are Free, Rebekah invites you to:
• Overcome the exhaustion of trying to meet the expectations of others and rest in the joy Gods freedom brings.
• Release stress, anxiety and worry, to uncover the peace that comes from abiding in His presence.
• Find permission to grieve past experiences, confess areas of brokenness, and receive strength in your journey towards healing.
• Throw off self-condemnation, burn superficial masks and step boldly into what our good God has for you.
• Discover the courage to begin again and use your newfound freedom to set others free.
Freedom is for everyone who wants itthe lost, the wounded, and those weary from all of the striving. Its for those who gave up trying years ago. Its for those angry and hurt, brilliant and burnt by the Christian song and dance. You are the church, the people of God. You were meant to be free.
Rebekah Lyons is the author of Freefall to Fly: A Breathtaking Journey Toward a Life of Meaning and Founder of Q Women.
She is the mother of three, wife of one and a dog walker of two living in Nashville. Rebekah is an old soul with a contemporary, honest voice who puts a new face on the struggles women face as they seek to live a life of meaning. Through emotive writing and speaking, Rebekah reveals her own battles to overcome anxiety, depression, and consumer impulses - challenging women to discover and boldly pursue the calling God has for them.
Alongside her husband, Gabe, Rebekah serves as cofounder of Q Ideas, a nonprofit organization that helps Christian leaders winsomely engage culture. Her favorite pastime is spent with her nose in a book and a discriminating cup of coffee in hand.
bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A personal account of finding freedom in ChristApril 15, 2017bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 4Scripture says we Christians are free but our everyday lives may seem anything but free. That was the case for Lyons who fought anxiety and had panic attacks. She takes us through her own journey to freedom. This is a personal account of her being healed from anxiety, finding her calling, believing and declaring she was free, thirsting for God's presence, asking God for anything, realizing God is her true home, resting, abiding, writing, grieving, being weak, celebrating, journaling, and sharing her freedom with others.
This is not a Bible study but rather a very personal account. Lyons has included thought provoking questions at the end of each chapter. The idea is that readers would read about Lyons' experience and then work though the questions with, perhaps, a similar journey to freedom. Lyons journaled and she recommends readers do the same and the questions would help stimulate thought for writing.
I found it interesting that Lyons mentions The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. Cameron recommends writing Morning Pages, three hand written pages every morning. Lyons found the discipline to be very rewarding and recommends it. I've gone through Cameron's book and also found the discipline to be very beneficial.
I recommend this book to those who respond well to personal accounts of transformation rather than a Bible study on the subject. The questions included are good ones and will yield much material for thought and writing.
I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
MWright5 Stars Out Of 5A Timely Message of FreedomFebruary 21, 2017MWrightQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"You Are Free" is simply one of the best books I've ever read, and it was the perfect follow-up to "The Broken Way" by Ann Voskamp. God used this message of freedom to speak straight into the season that I'm in right now. I'm in awe of Him and how He does that! Rebekah's real-life stories are woven together with truth from Scripture and the result is this beautiful book.
Michelle Sieburg5 Stars Out Of 5The work of Christ alone makes you free.February 21, 2017Michelle SieburgQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In You Are Free by Rebekah Lyons, the author shares her personal journey to freedom in Christ. For each of us, finding freedom looks a little different, but the truth is always the same: Christ is enough. Christ did the work on the cross for you. Freedom is ours to claim as we surrender to the saving work, love and grace of our Savior. Rebekahs humble spirit and deep love for women shines in this book as she walks you through each way the Lord drew her to freedom and showed her what a life of freedom could mean for her and for others in her life. We are free to be rescued, called, thirst, ask big things, wait, rest, grieve, and help set others free. In a world that tells us we arent enough, dont have what it takes and cant be rescued from things that easily ensnare, this book is a bright torch of truth and freedom from Gods Word. Are you ready to throw off everything that burdens you and be set free? This book is a great place to start!
