You Were Born For This

by: Bruce Wilkinson

Published Summary: His New York Times phenomenon The Prayer of Jabez changed how millions pray. Now Bruce Wilkinson wants to change what they do next.
Anyone can do a good deed, but some good works can only happen by a direct intervention from God. Around the world these acts are called miracles—not that even religious people expect to see one any time soon. But what would happen if millions of ordinary people walked out each morning expecting God to deliver a miracle through them to a person in need? You Were Born for This starts with the dramatic premise that everyone at all times is in need of a miracle, and that God is ready to meet those needs supernaturally through ordinary people who are willing to learn the “protocol of heaven.”
In the straightforward, story-driven, highly motivating style for which he is known, Wilkinson describes how anyone can be a “Delivery Guy” from heaven in such universally significant arenas of life as finances, practical help, relationships, purpose, and spiritual growth.

You Were Born for This will change how readers see their world, and what they expect God can do through them to meet real needs. They will master seven simple tools of service, and come to say with confidence, “I want to deliver a supernatural gift from God to someone in need today—and I expect to!”

My Thoughts:
I recieved this book in the mail a few weeks ago and I have to admit I read it with preconceived notions or judgments about what I would be reading. The title and little book blurbs caused great concern that what I was to read was The prayer of Jabez meets the Prosperity Gospel with a few words changed. I was completely floored when I got into that it was none of that.

This is a book that teaches you how to be open to God, how to listen for His prompts and or detours, and then most importantly how to act on it. So much of the Christian world these days is all talk and this book teaches you to take notice and the miracles God does and jump in and be a part of them.

I walked away from reading this excited and ready to be used by God.

I encourage everybody to read this book and read it with an open mind to what God has for you in your day to day.

Reverence vs Relevance

Reverence vs Relevance from LifeWay Productions on Vimeo.

About a year ago I found myself in this wierd state of mentality. Blogging wasn’t making sense, life wasn’t making sense and God sure as heck wasn’t making sense. I went on a “mancation” to attempt to sort through all of that.

Recently I have noticed that a year later I still have a ton to sort through.

Bear with me the next few days while I unpack that online.

I think God is doing something huge here and I want my internet family to be a part of it. So stay with me.

ok everybody this one was a pretty simple decision considering I had no less than 4 messages from others who turned down thier chance so he could win.
