This book may be the most important book that you will hear this year. I had such a divinely inspired sense of urgency to write it that I know God was trying to get it out as soon as possible to the audience that I was purposed to touch. What you will hear in this book may alter the course of your life. At best, it will help give you greater clarity than ever on God's vision and purpose for your life. At worst, it will give you a great sense of confirmation that you're going about discovering your life's purpose in the right way. This book was written to help anyone who is trying to discover their God-given purpose and move forward into it, despite the opposition of competing voices known as the "you shoulds". The "you shoulds" often come from well-meaning people in our lives. People like our parents, coaches, teachers, religious leaders, siblings, and friends. This book is for young people who are searching for their life's purpose. This book is for the parents of young people that are trying to discover their purpose. This book is also for anyone considering a career change. Finally, it's for people who have realized that they've been on the wrong path, perhaps following someone else's "you should" vs. God's divine plan for their life.
I got this ARC via audiobook boom. The points that stood out the most for me were that once you listen to all of the you shoulds in your life that the best you should come from God. I am not a C. Dollar nor TD Jakes fan so their advice is suspect for me. But I know that God is the ultimate answer to all questions I have and that by spending time with Him I am able to discover that my you shoulds will come from Him. The narration was good and I loved the scripture references given to back up the things said. I am able to go look them up and read them in context to determine if what they are purported to represent is what the Bible is referring to. Sometimes we can take scripture out of context to try to prove our points. I have learned that I must know the context, the person the scripture is referring to, and also seek God's understanding of what is being said. Just because it is taken from the Bible to prove a point if you don't know the context you can be led astray.
