stories, lessons, and a lot of nonsense

What do you see when you look at yourself?  Do you see an individual created with a Divine purpose, or do you just see a person who isn’t good enough, rich enough, successful enough, etc?  Although so many of us commonly dwell on the latter, we should really be seeing the former.  God made you with a very specific set of gifts, talents, and interests.  He has taken you through a specific set of circumstances, and He uses both to prepare you for your Divine destiny.  That’s the message I took from Mark Batterson’s SoulPrint: Discovering Your Divine Destiny.

This book was a compelling read, and unlike most Christian books I have read, I felt it was very original.  I don’t usually describe Christian books that way, but Batterson has a unique take on a lot of things.  He has a take that I understand and connect with.  He is an optimist.  He believes that God has a plan for him, and that He is always working the plan.  I believe that way, too, and sometimes I have to force myself into optimism.  It seems to come naturally for him.  He is selling what I want to buy: a positive look at the truth.

Bottom line: this is one of the best Christian books I have read in a long time.  I have liked each of Mark Batterson’s books more the last.  This one kept in line with that.  I think it’s an incredible read, especially for anyone that’s struggling to identify their worth in God’s plans.  I recommend you buy it HERE.
