Keep and re-read,
This review is from: Soulprint: Discovering Your Divine Destiny (Paperback)
Some of us are hands and some are feet ~ we all are a part of the body of Christ. We are each uniquely created to be the person God destined us to be "before sin distorted the image of God in us" and what is most important to Him is that we become that person. That is what the author, Mark Batterson, has discussed in this book.
Now that I am finished reading the book, lots of passages are highlighted and some of the pages are turned back so I can quickly go back and read and ponder. The first underlined section caused me to think about four specific events in my life that shaped who I am today. They are not times that would seem important to another person, but they are so important to me that I have "snapshot moments" of where I was and what I was doing when they took place. The second thing I underlined was "Let God engineer" because at a silent retreat once someone told me not to have an agenda and God did a life changing work in me that weekend. I also highlighted a section taken from Tuesdays with Morrie where Morrie shared that he was a sum of all that he was at the different ages in his life ~ I understand this. And the section about Corrie ten Boom ~ the poem about our lives being weavings and how we can't see the finished product, but only see the knots on the underside. Finally, there is a little discussion about the Johari window (you can look it up on the internet) that caused me to think about the verse that asks God to search me and know my heart (Ps. 139). He knows everything about me ~ even the secret places that I don't know.
This is a book I know I will re-read and share with others. I am thankful that I had the opportunity to read it.
I received this book free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review
