Max Lucado’s, You Can Be Everything God Wants You to Be packs a lot of information into a slim, 127-page book.
God packed bags for us that are created solely for us alone. He gives each of us unique talents and skills that allow us to shine–with the desire that we will reflect God’s love as we live up to his gifts.
Do you feel like you are just one more mouse on a wheel? One more drone in a cubical? Max’s book tells us that God wants us to break free and live the unique and exciting life that He has planned for you!
This is a perfect pocket-sized book is great for a new graduate starting out, or a friend “transitioning” into a new career. Max presents scriptures supporting how God wants the best for us,
“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out–plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.” Jeremiah 29:10-11 MSG
and then goes on to offer advice on how to identify and achieve your dreams.
One thing I like about this book is its size–it’s the perfect thing to slip in my bag and pull out while waiting in bus line or for one of my kid’s events. It’s a great way to spend a few moments pulling closer to God and learning about what He wants for us.
As a struggling writer, questioning where I belong, this book gives me hope and direction. I have the tools and talents in the bag that God packed for me to do this. I may not know when and where, but God does.
I have several other Max Lucado books and this is one I’m happy to add to my book shelf. I’ll also keep a copy give to someone I see struggling with where they thing God wants them to be.
Look inside the bag God packed just for you, and rejoice in the gifts that He has given.
