People make plans according to what they believe they need to accomplish, but are these God's ideas as well? Timberlake, lead pastor of Christian Faith Center in Creedmoor, N.C., offers a fresh take on that eternal question. He encourages people to "abandon" their plans, explaining that the term has been long misinterpreted as negative. Timberlake uses the biblical story of Jacob, applying the story of Jacob's troubled relationships with his family and the schemes he concocts to the way today's Christians lack faith and hatch their own plans rather than discerning God's purpose for them. "Remember—the right way is not your way," Timberlake writes. Each chapter ends with questions for reflection, to make the content relevant to each person's life and to encourage faith and willingness to abandon their plans and accept God's. Those who may be at a crossroads in life will find inspiration in Timberlake's words and, perhaps, the strength to follow God's plans instead. (Apr.)

Discover.. Focus.. Overcome.. Hunger for more.. This book showed me how obedience to God is not a burden but a victory over doubt, temptation and failures. This book is filled with encouraging statements to uplift and tells us to seek the plan God has for us. The last chapter has 9 practical ways to point you in the right direction and is one I will read over and over again. Tim states "We can't enjoy the victories of today if we're continually dwelling on the defeats of yesterday. ~ A negative mind will never produce a positive life!" Thanks Tim.. I won't go back, I want to celebrate my 'Successes!' I was gifted a copy for my opinion from the BookClub Network (bookfun.org)

Living Life as God Intended Tim Timberlake’s “Abandon” embraces an affirmative message for finding God’s purpose which will resonate with today’s contemporary generation and culture. It is written for anyone struggling to find God’s intended destiny for their life.     Lessons are drawn from the circumstances, family, and culture that surrounded and impacted the life of well-known Old Testament patriarch Jacob. Timberlake carefully details the birth of twins Esau and Jacob, their natural inclinations, personalities, and their interaction with parents, Isaac, and Rebecca. He provides new insights into the formation of Jacobs’s early deceitfulness, shrewdness, fears, and his emerging sensitivity for fulfilling God’s purpose for his life. Timberline translates examples from Jacob’s struggles into guidelines and principles to help the reader make personal application for facing life and forming values that will powerfully impact and transform their life to find a deeper awareness of closeness to God while discovering his purpose, Some unique features of the book include innovative keys for making a difference in a changing digital age:  • Perceptive “Abandon” statements designed to move the reader to make choices which include denying self to consistency in obedience to God  • Thought Provoking Questions that encourage looking within to deepen your relationship with Jesus and create a hunger for God’s word • Relevant, timely applications for molding the reader into deeply committed followers of Christ  Tim Timberlake is a pastor, Bible teacher, and author, with a gift for cross cultural and intergenerational ministry. “Abandon, Laying Aside Your Plan for God’s Purpose” offers the reader heartfelt guidelines for turning life’s circumstances and barriers into blessings and fulfillment. A complimentary review copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.

If you really want to be challenged in your Christian life, this Tim Timberlake book is for you. The author dares each one of us to be “abandoned” to God in all areas of our lives and gives us reasons why. Pastor Timberlake uses the story of Jacob from scripture to show us how a man named “the Deceiver” became “the Prince” by his personal encounters with God. Jacob finally realized through life’s experiences that his way of living was empty and in vain, but to trust God with every aspect of his life was abundant living. The various topics considered in the book are: • “don’t do it yourself,” • “ditch the doubt,” • “abandon your ways,” • “abandon your outlook,” • “shoulda, woulda, coulda” and others. The author makes some strong, compelling arguments for abandoning one’s life to God’s way. I’m giving this book to a friend who has been struggling with this very issue in his life. If he will receive the challenge, he will benefit greatly. I received this free book from Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
