Book Review: Nothing To Prove

I really enjoyed this book by Jennie Allen! Nothing To Prove helps us to get a better picture of what life would be like if we chose to believe the truth that we have nothing to prove. So many of us struggle with always feeling like we are not enough or that we never measure up. We are constantly comparing ourselves to everyone around us and always find ourselves wanting. We think we have to prove our worth. We are constantly trying to be more, do more and have more. Jennie says of the book, “My single goal is to lead your thirsty soul to the only source of lasting fulfillment: Jesus. He is the living water, a limitless supply that will not only quench your thirst but will fill you and then come pouring out of you into a thirsty world.”

Jennie shows us the freedom that can be ours when we stop trying so hard, and instead just rest in Jesus. Rest in who He has called us to be. Rest in what He has called us to do. And not worry about what He has called others to be and do. We need to stop trying to be people pleasers. One of my favorite quotes from the book is, “I began to have victory over my addiction to people’s approval when I finally started calling my people pleasing sin. When I realized I had been worshiping people instead of God, that broke me. As I saw it for the idolatry that it was, I lost my appetite for it.”

Nothing To Prove was an eye-opening look at what and Who we are living our lives for. I highly recommend this book!
