Introduce Yourself to this Book!,
This review is from: Soulprint: Discovering Your Divine Destiny (Paperback)
"Uniqueness is God's gift to you, and uniqueness is your gift to God." Soul Print's first paragraph contains both this sentence and a challenge. It's a dare to be unlike anyone but you.
As someone who loves being considered "unique," a book exploring this subject piqued my interest.
Being unique, I discovered, isn't as simple as looking or acting different. Each one of us was created with a divine imprint- a soul print. Until we discover our soul print and allow God to introduce us to ourselves, we're incapable of fulfilling our divine destiny.
So what exactly is a soul print, and how do we uncover it? When we're used to living as strangers to ourselves, how do we go about getting acquainted with who God made us to be? Where do we find our identity?
Drawing from the biblical account of David and personal experience, Mark Batterson explains the soul print and how we identify our identity. Covering topics such as confidence, memories, our "alter ego," and others, he inspires readers to dig deep and eliminate false identities- the things we depend on to tell us who we are.
Reading Soul Print was both freeing and difficult. Freeing, because it so clearly showed that God doesn't want me to be anyone but me! Difficult, because discovering the identity God created for me requires self-examination and change.
But as the author writes on page 16, "The failure to give expression to our soul prints will result in our greatest regrets."
Soul Print inspires you to take on the challenge and rise above regrets. Go ahead and introduce yourself to this book- it could be what God uses to introduce you to yourself.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars!
I received this book for free from the published in exchange for my review.
