You Can Be Everything God Wants You to Be
By Max Lucado
This book was aimed at helping each person realize that God made them uniquely and has a special plan for them. Each section contained a topic that focused on either finding your strengths, understanding where those fit in the big picture, and actually acting on becoming all God wants you to be. This book was a quick read, made up of excerpts from Lucado’s “Cure for the Common Life.” Having not read “Cure for the Common Life” I was able to enjoy the concisely put insights of this book without feeling jipped. This book takes a look at living up to ones potential, particularly looking at what motivates and inspires people and how we can take the things we love and use them for Gods glory and our fulfillment. This book is particularly relevant because in contemporary America it is so easy to get caught up in materialism—that promotion or pay increase without regards to our gifts and talents—our place in God’s plan. So, though just skimming the surface, if you are ready to begin embracing the person God wants you to be and the tools he has given you to begin the journey, “You Can Be Everything God Wants You to Be” is a great place to start.
Thomas Nelson publishers provided me with a free copy of this book in exchange for a review, however all opinions within the review are mine.
