This book was an easy, informative read. I really enjoyed it. God's will is not as difficult to live out as I was making it to be. Thanks

It's a question that we have probably all asked ourselves at some point in our lives. "What am I supposed to do with my life?" If we are Christians, we will also often ask "What is God's will for my life?" Author Johnnie Moore approaches these questions in his book What Am I Supposed to Do with My Live?: God's Will Demystified. Johnnie explains that God's will should not be difficult for us to find. In fact, we should not have to search for God's will at all. God's will is more about becoming who we are supposed to be. God fashioned us to do something, to have a purpose. God's will is this purpose. In his book, Johnnie addresses how our own will is at war with God's will, why "waiting on God" is not helpful in finding God's will for us, how to make decisions when presented with different paths, making a commitment and pursuing our dreams. Johnnie's book explores what the Bible says about God's will for us and confirms very much so what the pastor at my church has been teaching for years, as Johnnie Moore says, "The will of God is more about who you are than where you are or what you do. You don't find it, you become it."
