Wake Up Dead – Dying to Self to Experience True Life
By Jenny Donnelly
LIVING THE LIFE GOD DESIGNED FOR YOU
INSTEAD OF THE ONE YOU THINK YOU WANT
Do you wonder, is there more to life than this?
Like a seed, you have a destiny code embedded inside of you. God has preordained you to fulfill a specific and significant purpose. You’ve never felt more alive, more purposeful, and more free than you will when you are living out this destiny. But there is a cost. Just like a seed must go deep into the ground for a dark burial in order to shed its outer shell, you, too, must allow your outer shell of “living for self” to be buried and die. But oh- it is worth it! You will not be the same person or have the same life after you are done reading this book.
From Chapter 1:
In the fall of 2018, I prayed a dangerous prayer.
“Lord, let me not be the same person a year from now. Make me into new wine.”
We had just put the second Her Voice Conference on the schedule for 14 months later and I knew that I didn’t want to give these women old wine. I wanted God to give them something fresh, something new. As the leader of the organization, this meant that I would have to be new.
I remember thinking, “God has 14 whole months to make me new! This seems like ample time.” What I hadn’t even considered was the process by which new wine is made.”
