I struggle. I have always struggled with the question ‘Why am I here?”. I have also pledged since my teenage years to “Live life inspired”. The title of this new book by Pastor Linda Pulley Freeman captured my attention immediately. Inspired for Greater Things - I read a sample chapter and knew this had to be my next book to use in my quiet time with God every morning. Only 17 short lessons, each topic focused on one aspect of becoming the purpose we were each born for …. Greater things, starting with the first lesson, Be Yourself.

Maybe this will sound familiar to you. It did to me. From the first lesson: For years I struggled….focused more on what I wasn't, than on what I was. Using Gideon as the illustration for success in this area, Pastor Freeman notes that Gideon believed he was ‘least likely to succeed at his mission’ but he came to believe that God designed him specifically with the purpose to lead the attack on the Midianites.

Do you want to live abundantly? There’s a lesson for that. An abundant life is not material wealth, its spiritual substance. Practice 1) Living with a mind open to new ideas, skills, places, and people; 2) Living with a heart open to love, forgiveness, joy, and to worship God; 3) Living with hands open to give, serve, and receive

Powerful is not a word I would use to describe me. Interestingly though, I discovered that I do have power and it’s resident in the spiritual gifts I was born with. I cultivate my spiritual power by building my faith in Jesus. It’s been about 10 years now, but I remember my excitement when a Bible teacher and friend introduced me to the fact that each of us is born with spiritual gifts.

Linda's approach to change is clear, simple, and scripturally based, all of which results in the opportunity for positive change when you venture into her latest book.

Linda uses her life experiences as quick and focused inspiration to help us make our own way. As with her previous book "Thrive!", Linda again uses a clean and simple approach. Her formula is easy to follow and yet it results in strong learning, which in turn fuels strong change.

In short (two to three pages mostly) doses, we are asked to consider a focus, read a short scriptural reference and a slightly longer commentary, then reflect. This is effective learning for change, at its most uncomplicated.

The book is small and easy to carry with you, so you can digest a specific topic or focus anywhere you happen to be or when you really need to clarify your thinking.

For example, one of my favorite chapters was "Be Pruned". The scripture (John 15: 1,2) talks about the need to cut off unproductive things and to prune productive things to keep them going. Far from being a gardening tip, this short consideration of the need to continually evaluate what is in our lives and what needs to either go or be reshaped applies to just about every aspect of life: work, school, commitments, marriage, children, and so on. Even troubles are noted as welcome aspects of growth, painful as they might be.

I enjoyed my initial cruise through "Inspired For Greater Things" and it now resides on my night-stand, where I plan to use this neat little book to provide focus and inspiration to my days and my work.

Linda Pulley Freeman's newest book definitely lives up to its name: Inspired for Greater Things. The book is comprised of 17 short devotionals, each about 2 pages long, with accompanying Scripture passages and relevant quotes. There is also a short space at the end of each entry to jot down your own personal reflections.

The devotionals include a good blend of practical daily suggestions (ie, being intentional about resting), spiritual insights (ie, reflecting God's nature), and encouraging personal illustrations (ie, developing Big Ideas). Each is written from a distinctly Christian worldview, with a strong emphasis on obeying God and trusting Him at all times; and each includes relevant, thought-provoking application to daily life. Although there is no obvious order to the entries, they do seem to build on each other - beginning with inner character, moving through circumstantial issues, and ending with outward compassion and service toward others.

I would definitely recommend this book as an accompaniment to your regular daily devotions. It could also be useful in a small group or one-on-one discipleship setting.
