An Overview of Get Out of Your Head
Change your thoughts
Many of us struggle with the weight of our thoughts. Am I good enough? I’m helpless. I’m worthless. I don’t matter. God can’t possibly love me. These words are suffocating.
But, in Get Out of your Head: Stopping the Spiral of Toxic Thoughts, Jennie Allen attacks the enemy’s lies, showing all how to stop negative patterns that hold us captive.
In its pages, the reader explores how our views-about God and ourselves- impact our lives. We can all embrace the God given power we hold over our fears to step into true freedom. The enemy has no power over our emotions. He has no control.
My Review of Get out of Your Head
I truly enjoyed this book. I must be honest. If it was not given to me, I would not have picked it up. Though not my normal reading, it couldn’t have come at a better time. In the stress of moving, I had lost control of my thoughts.
I have always struggled with anxiety, with my place in the world. My head is often a battlefield with no clear winner.
As a Christian, there is a constant battle between trust and this doubt. My thoughts have often held me captive as I spiral farther into the abyss.
The first day I opened the pages of Get Out of Your Head, I was surrounded by peace. It is reassuring to know that I-and you-are not alone. Through personal experiences, my thoughts were transformed; my head is now learning how to control and conquer the enemy.
Our thoughts control our emotions. So, to become the best version of ourselves, we must learn to control our thoughts.
I loved the religious foundation of this book. God has given us everything we need to find freedom from our thoughts. However, the question is will we take it?
For me, the most challenging part is the idea of being still. That has always seemed counterproductive. If I feel helpless or worthless, I become busy to feel better. To feel productive.
However, to gain control of thoughts, I now know I must allow God to work in my silence. Growing is a process, but I will return to the book for reminders, for peace, for control.
My Favorite Quote from Get Out of Your Head
Often, it is easy to pick my favorite quote but not this time. This time, every page had a powerful thought. Nonetheless, the one I chose comes from the beginning chapters.
“How we think shapes how we live.”
Overall, this book is a fantastic guide to gain control of our thoughts, get out of our heads, and become who God intended us to be. It is a must read if you struggle with toxic thoughts, doubt, or anxiety.
