Your Beautiful Purpose: Discovering and Enjoying What God Can Do Through You by Susie Larson, is a wonderfully thought provoking book about finding the will that God has for your life.
When I first started this book, I wasn’t entirely sure what to make of it. I mean, who doesn’t want to know the purpose of your life? Obviously it is something that we all want. Direction. To know we are making the correct choices, to know that our lives are moving in the way that God chooses. But, how do you figure out God’s purpose?
Well, that is what this book shows you how to do. It is wonderfully written, has personable stories from the author, and my favorite part – real hard questions at the end of each chapter. They make you take a real hard look at your life, and what you are doing. What direction are you moving in? Is it really the direction you should be moving?
What struck me the most about this book was how Susie showed us that we have to give up our own dreams in order to figure out what God wants us to do. Maybe we are clouding our minds so much with what we want we are unable to hear what He wills.
It was a big eye-opener for me. I thought that the questions were really great for a group setting or for individual reading. This would be a wonderful book to work through with a women’s group in your church. But, I think reading it on my own, and really being able to think about the words of this book was what worked for me.
I would love to offer my copy up to someone else who is looking for their beauitful purpose. Just leave a comment below.
I received a copy of this book for free from Bethany House in return for my honest review. The opinions are my own.
