Over the past few weeks I’ve been tweeting a lot about my second book. Many of you have been asking about it, so I thought I’d give you a little sneak peak today on the blog.
I’m so excited for the launch of my next book. It’s set to come out in September of 2012 and I believe it is really going to help you and countless others. While I can’t share the full details quite yet, including the title, I can give you a little insight into the central concept of the book.
In my experience, most Christians aren’t in imminent danger of ruining their lives. They’re in danger of something far greater: wasting it.
What I mean is that I’m meeting more and more believers who are unsatisfied with the kind of Christian they’re becoming, and the version of the Christian life they’re experiencing. There’s a huge gap between the kinds of things God has said in His Word, and the results we see in our lives.
We know we were meant for more. But we feel confused about what that looks like or where to start. We feel stuck where we’re at and frustrated because we don’t know what steps to take to move forward.
As a result, most of us end up settling for less than what God created and saved us for. We then get comfortable in our complacency. And years later we find ourselves stuck in the muck of mediocrity. Just getting by. Living a shadow of the life we dreamed and God intended. Wasting our lives.
I’m writing this second book to help you get unstuck. To help you dream big again or for the first time. To begin living the kind of life Jesus Himself dreamed for His followers:
I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. (John 14:12)
In my first book, Sun Stand Still, I dared you to believe God for the impossible. In this book, I’m daring you to believe that God has created you for a greater life than the one you’re living. And I’m going to give it everything I’ve got, with God’s help, to show you how to live it.
So if you are worn out on cul-de-sac Christianity or self-help pseudo solutions, I’m hoping that you will embrace the message of this book and let God’s greater plan for your life be ignited in full force.
I’ll be posting more updates in the coming months, so keep your eyes open. If you’re really anxious to know the title, I can tell you this: it’s somewhere in this post. Happy looking. In the meantime, help me spread the word and get people excited.
Resource of the Day:
One of the essential messages of the second book is if we want to enter into the greater things God has for us, we need to dream bigger, but also start smaller. That statement might make me sound like I’m talking out of both sides of my mouth, but I promise you that dreaming bigger and starting smaller go hand in hand. In fact, I wrote a recent blog post on the idea that you can read here
