Get This!

Mark Batterson's new book, Wild Goose Chase, is out and you have to get it. It will challenge you to live big and outside of the box and, as you know, I am a huge fan of big, adventurous living. I absolutely loved his book In A Pit With A Lion On A Snowy Day, but this one is even better. Here is a little taste:

A part of us feels as if something is spiritually wrong with us when we experience circumstantial uncertainty. But that is precisely what Jesus promised us when we are born of the Spirit and start following Him. Most of us will have no idea where we are going most of the time. And I know that is unsettling. But circumstantial uncertainty also goes by another name: adventure.

I love that! Winston Churchill once said, "Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved." This is what Christianity was meant to be, not the boring, status quo for which so many people settle. The heroes and heroines of Scripture went where God took them even when they didn't see the whole picture.
I could go on and on forever...just get this book and read it.
