Learn how to quiet your inner critic, confront chronic anxiety, and relax into God's perfect presence.

Do you truly experience the promises Jesus gave to those who follow him—the benefits of peace, freedom, and love? The fact is that many of us struggle with a gap between what we believe about God and how we encounter him in our everyday lives. We don't want our faith to be merely conceptual—we want to experience it viscerally—and yet we often come up against one or more of these major gaps:

  • I believe God loves me, but I don't feel it.
  • I believe God is with me, but I don't see him.
  • I thought I'd be further along in my spiritual progress by now.

In The Expectation Gap, Steve Cuss—pastor and founder of the leadership organization Capable Life—offers tangible tools for engaging with God in a deeper, more soul-satisfying way. You'll unveil harmful expectations and patterns that keep you spiritually stuck so that you can replace them with habits and practices that will lead to a more vibrant faith life.

"This is the most helpful book I've read in my thirty-five years of ministry when it comes to recognizing, naming, and bridging the gap between what we believe about God and what we experience from God." —Christine Caine, founder of A21 and Propel Women
