I loved the book, A Certain Risk: Living Your Faith at the Edge, so much that I’ve already blogged about it not once, but twice this past week. Well, make it an even three! Because guess what?? I have 2 copies to give away, thanks to a super-special generous someone I know (hi, B!).
I could quote the book forever and ever amen, but I don’t want to completely spoil it for y’all, so I’ll just focus on two things: obstacles & gifts.
“Ask God to show you anything at all in your life that is weighing you down, suffocating your freedom, or hindering you from rising into the purposes and plans God has laid out for you.” (197)
“Success is largely redefined when we discover innovative ways to put our skills and talents to work on behalf of God’s own dreams. We all have a measure of gifts, wealth, strengths, skills, and creative talents… How might we activate our own assets to create in response to the opportunities in the world around us?” (202)
Just pick a question to answer in the comments, and click on the rafflecopter thingy to be eligible to win one of 2 copies of the book.
1. What’s in your way of pursuing God’s dreams for your life?
2. What gifts/talents has God given you that could be used for him (even if you don’t see how just yet)?
Thanks, friends! Happy winning!
