I’ve been struggling with defeating thoughts, questioning my purpose and my ability to live a life worthy of God.
Past mistakes, current struggles, and the fright of having to make decisions for the future all debilitate me. I make no progress with anything, even those things I think I know how to improve for the better. Instead of learning from my mistakes, I feel inadequate to move forward.
Reading Your Beautiful Purpose pulled me out of my immobile slump, as I was reminded of:
• Our worth in God;
• Our ability to access His great power to accomplish what seems so difficult;
• Our potential to make great changes for His (and our) good;
• Our enemy, who is the devil and not the people in our lives that rub us the wrong way or seem to be out to destroy us; and
• Our need to read the Bible every single day, so that I don’t forget these and many other life changing principles.
At the end of each chapter is an opportunity to do some Bible study and soul searching.
I look forward to continuing with the Bible studying on my own and making changes that will move me along in my God-given purpose here on earth.
Scripture translations include NIV, ESV, GW, HCSB, NKJV, NLT and the Message.
I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
