Dream : Discovering God's Purpose For Your Life
DREAM : DISCOVERING GOD'S PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE
What happened to us? Why are so many people let down by life? We once had dreams -- important dreams that gave us purpose -- but somehow we got off track.
It's certainly not what God wants for us. Our Designer dreamed unique dreams for each of us before we were even born. He skillfully wove them into our DNA, along with the gifts and abilities to achieve those dreams. But here we are, chasing earthly applause when we could be experiencing heaven's approval.
If you want confidence in knowing God's will, if you want each day to count, journey with Dutch Sheets as he presents soul-stirring lessons from the bible and godly dreamers of today. When you hear God's call on your life, you will never be the same.
I love the concept of a God who dreams. It's so obvious and yet not something I have ever really considered before. And He has dreams for me! The challenge is to mesh my dreams with my Heavenly Father's. How easy it is to get side-tracked by discouragement, frustration or even the lure of popularity. It's hard to go against mainstream culture and yet, as Christians we are faced with that reality more and more in this madly changing world. We need to draw close to the Lord with as much fervor as the world rushes away from Him.
This book is a great resource to help readers draw closer to their dreams while honoring their God. Sheets provides insightful thoughts on biblical truths. His fresh perspective filled me with a new enthusiasm for living the life God is leading me to. If you are looking for encouragement to recapture your dreams, look no further. This is the book for you!
