You Were Born For This by Bruce Wilkinson

For starters, let me say that I was pleasantly surprised at the content of this book as I began to indulge in it. I had somehow thought it was going to be a book about fulfilling one's calling/purpose...and you is that...but not how I had thought. Turned out the Lord was intending on changing my mind sets! (and yours!) The author suggests that what we were born for is to...”Do what God wants done.” Plain and simple. And really...I believe this with my whole heart. (aren't our own plans just junk?) Questions the author asks his reading audience which to me were/are thought provoking are: *Why are these experiences of the miraculous so rare for most people? *What if Heaven actually wanted you to experience them on a regular basis? *What if ordinary people like you and me are invited to partner with God to deliver miracles to others? Interesting! Thoughts to ponder and then act upon! This book is chock full of little nuggets throughout which I adore! Things to ponder and to meditate upon. Here are some examples: “God did not place you on this earth to notice Him at work only once or twice in your whole life.” “ When the Father has a miracle mission in mind, increasingly He will send you, one of His devoted team players.” “ God intends for us to use our money to display His goodness and faithfulness in miraculous ways.” The anointing of the Lord on the writing of this book is quite evident as I experienced the Holy Spirit hovering over me as I read...bringing even more illumination. I am blessed to of gotten my hands on this book. Not a book to be lightly read, but one to study and meditate upon. I highly recommend it to you. I received this book for free from the publisher through the WaterBrook Multnomah book review program. I was not required to write a favorable review. Freely I have been given and so freely I give.
