Have you been living life day by day, thinking you are in complete control of the outcome? If you have, you MUST READ THIS BOOK! Although you believe you accomplished your personal and professional goals on your own, I can assure you it’s not the case. You were placed on this earth by the Almighty God who created you to fulfill a purpose – allowing you to play an active role in fulfilling this purpose; ultimately glorifying Him in the process. So often, we focus on the noise and direction we hear from the world around us, rather than being still and seeking His still small voice and direction for our lives. We must be determined to settle for NOTHING LESS!
Another amazing book from TD Jakes that will challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and embrace what God truly has for you. When you are done reading this, I'd like to recommend that you read When God Stopped Keeping Score, which takes a breath taking look at the power of God and forgiveness. It is a must read!
Excellent read from a very profound man that hears the voice of God. This book is truly to inspire you as a reader to step out of the normal and the comfort of balance. To become unbalanced in a positive way to reach the maximum potential of your life in this world. I recommend more young people as myself to read it and go after there Destiny
T. D. Jakes in his new book, “Destiny” published by FaithWords gives us Step Into Your Purpose. From the back cover: Remember feeling a pull, sensing a divine guide that was leading you to the right place or person? DESTINY, that inner compass, directs you to fulfillment of your highest purpose. When you reflect on your life, you may be amazed that your greatest moments resulted from circumstances that you did not control or initiate. You were destined! Stepping into your destiny means fulfilling the role you were created to play in life. You thrive and find the great elixir of contentment when you have the courage to pursue your true purpose. Life offers more when destiny is our focus! Our divine purpose maneuvers us past challenges, pains, and shortcuts and even what appears on the surface to be failure. On deeper reflection, we understand them as catalysts that shift us toward authentic self-identity, greater exposure, and bold life adventures. Whether you are just starting out, starting over, or wondering if there is greater success than what you’ve already accomplished, now is the time to reset your inner compass. Clear your path of distractions and disruptions. Correct places where you have veered off course. Get unstuck. Embrace your God-given purpose and, with this revelatory guide from T.D. Jakes, dare to pursue the unseen order in your life circumstances that is your DESTINY. Each one of us has a purpose. Each one of us is unique. Each one of us has special talents and abilities that we bring to the table. Each one of us has a destiny. It is just that, sometimes, we forget or quite possibly we were never even told that we have that destiny. If that is the case then sometimes we do not fulfill our God-given destiny. Bishop Jakes has given us a tool to not only remind us of that destiny but to help us fulfill it as well. In seventeen chapters he helps us stop what is stopping us and give us tools to embrace our destiny and move ahead in it. I believe that “Destiny” is a book that each one of us should read and then keep close by so that we can refer back to it. I also believe that this would be a great gift to give to family and friends so that they can embrace and fulfill their destiny as well.
