Surrendered: Letting Go and Living Like Jesus

Learn How to Surrender Like Jesus.

Are you facing a problem in life that you just can't fix, no matter what you do? Perhaps you've heard the phrase "Let go and let God." But it's easier said than done. Is it possible that giving up on what you can't change is God's path to peace for your life? In this six-week Bible study of Jesus in the wilderness, Barb explores Jesus' time of testing and contrasts it with the Israelites' failures in the wilderness.

As you learn from Jesus' example, you'll discover six principles that will equip you to let God lead you to victory despite your circumstances as you deal with the problems and pain you are facing:

 1. Recognize You Can’t Handle It
 2. Stop Following Your Feelings
 3. Give Up Control and Reach for God
 4. Embrace God’s Better Blessing
 5. Let Go of Fear
 6. Experience the Blessings of a Surrendered Life

If you're tired of following your feelings or being disappointed by unchanging circumstances, learn how to surrender like Jesus and experience God's power and peace in your life as never before.

Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Leader Guide, DVD, or streaming video content.

Praise for Surrendered

Surrendered is the antidote for women like me who struggle with the dreaded c-word, control. Through
rich biblical teaching, vulnerable personal stories, and gentle (but insistent) beckoning, Barb Roose leads
us to a new place of freedom through trust in God. Finally . . . we can learn to release our white-knuckled
grip and rest.
—Amy Carroll, Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and writer, author of Breaking Up with Perfect
and Exhale

Barb’s surrender principles free us from the need to control others and from anger or frustration over life’s
disappointing and hurtful circumstances. As a Bible study teacher, I highly recommend this study.
— Janet Holm McHenry, best-selling author of twenty-four books including Prayer-
and The Compete Guide to the Prayers of Jesus

This study is full of transformative principles to free you from the grip of control. Whether you are tempted
to flee difficult circumstances, fix outcomes, or force your way forward, Barb lays out a clear path to
experience God’s lasting peace, power, and provision as you live surrendered to Him.
— Katie M. Reid, author of Made Like Martha, Bible teacher, and host of The Martha + Mary
Show podcast

In this study, you’ll be learning from a friend who is familiar with the painful parts of life and a guide who
has traveled the hard road of surrender. She won’t lead you astray; she’ll lead you straight to the heart
of God.
—Tiffany Bluhm, speaker, podcaster, and author of She Dreams
