A great book that reminds you that God has a plan for your life! One of the best reminders in the book is that "God speaks to us primarily through His Word." So, we need to read it!

Some verses quoted on page 141...
"I know the plans I have for you." Jeremiah 29:11
"I have inscribed your name on the palms of My hand." Isaiah 49:16
"Nothing can separate you from My love." Romans 8:35
"My love casts out fear." 1 John 4:18
"I will never leave you." John 14:18
"My thoughts of you are too numerous to count.
The book is a short, simple reminder that God cares for His children and has plans for us that reach beyond what we can see. It's a nice encouragement for the valleys of life.

Some of the best quotes from within:

"We don't walk spiritually by electric light but by a hand lantern. And a lantern only shows the next step - not several ahead." - Amy Carmichael

"Peace is God's umpire. When we have a true sense of peace within, then we know that what we are doing is right in the center of His will." - Ch

I like Charles Stanley as an author but this book just didn't meet his normal standards. The ultimate question is What is God's plan for my life? This book provided the standard responses I have seen in most of the other books out there and didn't offer anything new. Immerse yourself in God's word, pray for guidance, listen to others etc. It is a quick read and a good reminder of what is out there already.
This book offers concrete opportunities to examine your life and the book offers ways in which the reader can connect with God's plan and purpose for one's life.

It differs from the Purpose Driven Life yet gives much of the same information. I personally prefer the style of writing in this book over the former in forcing introspection and meditation on specific points.

Easy read without a lot of fluff, right to the heart of things. Inspirational writing but also practical an thought provoking.
A much simpler, and easier read than "Purpose Driven Life."

He may not like where your life is right now, but He is not going to abandon you (John 14:18). If you will trust Him, He will begin to work in your life. Then you will see His plan and will for your life unfold in a mighty way. This is His promise to each one of us.” 1 likes
