About the Book:
"Labels you have internalized and apply to yourself every day. Labels like Afraid. Or Addict. Orphan. Damaged Goods. Failure. Maybe even Religious. These labels might be sewn into your life with such tight little stitches that they feel like a part of you. They feel like they define you. But that’s a lie. If you let Him, Jesus can remove those old labels and tattoo new ones onto your soul. Then you’ll begin to see yourself as God the Father sees you. The limits will be lifted, and your life will be transformed. It’s the truth. Join Pastor Derwin Gray on a fascinating journey into what can happen when you offer your head, your heart, and your hands to the only one who can offer you truly limitless life."
Learning that your past doesn't define your future is something that can be hard. Labels that are burned into the brain, from years of disappointment, failure or pain, are hard to wipe clean. If you or someone you know, believes that labels define you, this is a book that you need to read.
"You Are More Than Your Past When God Holds Your Future"
Derwin Gray is a former NFL player and now the founder and lead Pastor of Transformation Church, one of the fastest growing churches in America. In this book he offers new labels like Courageous, Grace-Covered and Free. Using stories and the word of the Bible, Pastor Gray shows you how God sees you and that putting these new labels on, labels that God would give you, can open a whole new world. Freedom from the negative is a gift that God can offer.
This book includes transformation moments and discussion questions as well that would make it a great group discussion book.
