According to Dr. Jantz, many people today are consumed with excessity—craving more activities, skills, or objects to fulfill their lives. Loaded with Scripture, real-life stories, and self-reflection sections, this grownup's guide invites you to discover the reason behind your hidden desires—and delight in the way God longs to satisfy your true needs.
Are you spending so much time trying to get what you want that you have no energy left to get what you need? each of us has a “never enough” activity, food, or behavior – and we’re ready to throw a grown up tantrum when we don’t get it.
Dr. Gregory L. Jantz calls this phenomenon excessity – when our excesses become “necessities.” Excessities are our reward, our coping mechanism, and the illusory answer to pain. We feel we need their pleasure to insulate us from a difficult world. Yet the more we starve, what we really need – such as purpose, hope, and security – the greater our hunger grows for what will never satisfy.
In Gotta Have It! you are invited to discover the truth that is hiding behind your secret desires. With real life stories and sections for self reflection Gotta Have It! will help you see your life as never before – and delight in the ways god is longing to fulfill your true needs.
