It's Your Call . . . Dec 16, 2008
Perfect for : Personal Use
In a nutshell: The author does a great job of helping the reader to discover God's purpose in their life. Along the way, he provides guidance, great examples from his own life, and even goes so far as to spotlight some of the main points or thoughts in call-out boxes on some pages.
Extended Review: One thing that particularly hit me was a paragraph at the bottom of page 27 that says,
"You may not have all the particulars. However, God will unfold His plan as you progress along the path He's chosen for you. If you are waiting for Him to perfectly map out the course before you respond to His call, then you'll be left waiting forever. He develops and strengthens your faith as you walk with Him daily. But you have got to start walking."
Every now and then I sit down and think to myself, "What is my purpose - why am I here - how am I helping others - am I doing what I was meant to do?" All these questions pop up from time to time, and this paragraph just hit me when I read it! I had a few of these moments throughout the book.
Not only does the author help you to see where you are going, but he helps you to see what is holding you back and how to overcome those things.
Content: The book progresses nicely within seven chapters which start with (in my own words) owning/realizing your purpose, and ending with making it happen, with ways to accomplish the end result in between!
Format: The author has given us some great points, and supported those points with scripture and examples to help clarify what he is saying. Additionally, some of his points have been put into call-out boxes on some pages, which reinforce the point he is trying to get across.
Readability: Lawrence Powell writes in a way that is very easy to read - your eyes just take in the words, and they flow nicely to your brain. :) Yes - I know this sounds silly, but sometimes I really have to think about things and mull over them, not the case here - yes I had thoughtful moments, but it was more self-reflection, not trying to figure out what the author was saying.
Overall: I found I had a more positive outlook after reading this book, while I was able to see some of the main things holding me back - which gives me a way to focus on changing my life to be more meaningful for me. Note: I didn't particularly like the flashy look of the cover - something was just off-putting for me, if it is for you too, take a chance - get past the cover and read some of the book before you decide not to give it a try. I was amazed at how much I was able to take away from this book!
