Are you leading the life God intended? Have you identified your strengths and talents? Do you use your gifts to honor and glorify God?
If so, you are probably living life from your sweet spot – the place where your unique gifts combine with your life circumstances and intersect with God’s plans. If not, perhaps you need a cure. I heartily recommend a heaping dose of Max Lucado’s Cure For The Common Life!
Cure For The Common Life will help you to find fulfillment in life by using the strengths God equipped you with for His purposes. Consider this book your toolbox for finding and releasing your gifts! You will learn how your earliest longings hold clues to your unique purpose and design. You will also learn how to uncover your life STORY, which is full of Strengths, Topics, Optimal Conditions, Relationships, and Yes moments! This process is so vital, that a step-by-step Sweet Spot Discovery Guide by People Management Inc is included at the end of the book – along with a Bible Study Guide by Steve Halliday, which makes the book perfect for individual and group study!
Wherever you may face a challenge in this process – Max anticipates and provides a solution. Some of his answers are quite surprising and refreshing. For instance, he prescribes worship as the cure to both self-loving and self-loathing – a prescription Christians will find inspiring!
I love reading Max Lucado because of his unique ability to breathe life into his readers through his words and the Word. He makes Scripture come alive in ways that are vivid, fresh, and practical. He masterfully blends biblical teachings with real life examples and sound advice. If you could benefit from a little direction and guidance in your life (and let’s face it – who couldn’t at some point in their lives?) – then treat yourself to this book! I highly recommend it and look forward to sharing it with my friends!
