Is your life limited by labels the world and other people have used to define you?
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 happens when you offer your head, your heart, and your hands to the only one who can offer you truly limitless life.

"A label is a soul-tattoo that is ingrained deep in our hearts, so much so that it determines how we see ourselves, And how we see ourselves determines how we live... A destructive label leads to a destructive life. There is a soul thief, a dark enemy, who wants to nail ruinous labels to your heart so that he can steal your life. Jesus wants to give you life giving labels that release your potential for the good of the world. " -Derwin L. Gray
Not only are there wonderful scriptural refrences and excellent devotional material to meditate on, Derwin ends each chapter with an action to challenge you to DO SOMETHING. Derwin will move you to "marinate" on a thought, or sieze a moment for transformation as you read this book.
Derwin affirms who it is that Messiah says you are. Loved, Chosen, Free, Forgiven... and encourages you to live under those labels. This book is an excellent source of encouragement and exhortation to live an abundant life.
