Love Idol: Letting Go of Your Need for Approval—and Seeing Yourself through God's Eyes

by Jennifer Dukes Lee, Lisa-Jo Baker

Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. | March 21, 2014 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Love Idol: Letting Go of Your Need for Approval—and Seeing Yourself through God's Eyes is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
We all want someone to think we’re sensational. We desire to be recognized, to be valued, to be respected. To be loved. Yet this natural yearning too often turns into an idol of one of God’s most precious gifts: love itself. If you, like so many of us, spend your time and energy trying to earn someone’s approval—at work, home, and church—all the while fearing that, at any moment, the facade will drop and everyone will see your hidden mess . . . then love may have become an idol in your life. In this poignant and hope-filled book, Jennifer Dukes Lee shares her own lifelong journey of learning to rely on the unconditional love of God. She gently invites us to make peace with our imperfections and to stop working overtime for a love that is already ours. Love Idol will help us dismantle what’s separating us from true connection with God and rediscover the astonishing joy of a life full of freedom in Christ.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This could be all of us! I don't read self help books, far too aware that I can not help myself but must allow God to do with me as He wills. This is NOT a self help book, nor is it your typical Christian Life book. Jennifer's words are brave and hard as she stands before us and God in transparent honesty, revealing how deep the need for approval has buried roots. This could be my story. This could be your story. The problem is so universal that every reader will see themselves reflected, not always in a flattering light. I must admit I am having difficulty working my way through Love Idol - because I am holding the book in one hand and a highlighting pen in the other. There isn't a page that isn't marked with bright colour. Yes, the words are that good. That good indeed! I know I will return to this volume again and again. Reading it is almost like a prayer or repentance and surrender. Lives will change. Count on it!
