Practical and Timely!

In his book, What Am I Supposed to Do with My Life?: God's Will Demystified, Johnnie Moore has written a very practical book.  The premise behind this book were Moore’s years as the Campus Pastor at Liberty University.  The question he seeks to address is one so many Christians struggle with.  If I’m doing all I can to obediently follow Christ, then ‘why is it so difficult to know what God wants me to do?’

We’ve all gone through that dilemma.  Moore discusses a good friend who made a decision between two good things, but to this day still does not know if he made the right choice.  That is disconcerting, and more than that causes us to have doubts about our decisions and God’s presence and role in our lives.

We all want to make a difference in the world, especially in our sphere of the world, but when we feel stymied, even paralyzed to do God’s will, it impacts us in a negative way.  Moore attempts to guide the reader to better understand God’s presence in the midst of our uncertainty.

This book is easy to read, not overly theological, and is filled with many stories which help bring home his points.  I do not believe Moore is beating up the reader, rather he is encouraging the reader not to become discouraged when we are confused.  He reminds us it is about who you are and what God is doing in your life right now.

I would highly recommend this book to those who want to do a little self-discovery so they can better follow God’s will and plan for their lives.
