One of the purposeful pathways chapters was designed to challenge us to be critical thinkers. The author gave a beautiful illustration about one of her miracles and asked everyone to expound on their miracles. As for me, my conception was a miracle. Understanding that God knew me in my biological mother's womb gives me the assurance of an unwavering pathway to decide whether or not I will stand still or move forward. The author assures readers that our life is truly a miracle and by taking care of our minds and bodies it will enable us to transform. Since change is necessary; transforming will definitely help us to advance in our lives.
The second educational takeaway for me, was when the author explained that everyone has suffered; perhaps the death of a love one or has been abused. We must remember whose child we are. On this journey of life that God will help us get over our losses and feelings of abusiveness. Although, the feelings of brokenness and doubt will try to take over; we cannot take revenge or act out because of our suffering. As believers we must trust in God, for the abusers will encounter misfortune and as a griever, remember things will get better.
Each chapter gives noteworthy messages, but the last important lesson learned for me, is that as a Christian I must always strive for greatness in my life. The parable which the author used regarding virtues and finances was remarkable. Embracing both stories, being a cheerful giver and receiver is a must and it enables us to grow in our lives. We as Christians must not live outside of our means and should be productive and multiply our investments.
Dr. Sharon E. Flowers challenges us to develop a better understanding about the importance of developing a purposeful pathway in this book. The book is well organized and magnificently written. Every thought provoking chapter allows readers to seek out new ways to examine themselves. The author’s message empowers you to accept life’s lessons and encourages a person to move forward and move pass old issues. She also inspired and encouraged me and others to write down our opinions and thoughts after each chapter. Her well-documented works were biblical explained with references. Dr. Flowers did an excellent job constructing this book “Purposeful Pathways: Life Lessons for Moving Forward.”
