Letting Go of Your Limitations by Sandie Freed

*I received this book as a complimentary copy in exchange for this review from Chosen Books.*

Would you like more of God's power in your life? Are you struggling to have an abundant life? These questions, and more, are what Dr. Freed is addressing in her book: Letting Go of Your Limitations. Dr. Freed gives challenges and encouragement that God is with you and that His power will defeat limitations placed on you by others or yourself.

I found this book to be decent and an easy read. While I agree that our mind and our tongue can put us into more trouble that we should be in, I do disagree that every thought is an evil spirit trying to seduce us. Sometimes I have a bad thought because I am a sinner and need Christ to rid myself of the old man. The thought comes from me; not outside influences. However, I do agree that some thoughts do come from the outside and need to be attacked.

The book did do a good job of attacking some lies about performance and religious "perfectionism". Many would do well to understand that God does not call us to performance but to righteousness and obedience. On this book Dr. Freed and I agree wholeheartedly. That said, this book gets a three stars out of a five star rating.
