It took me a while to slog through this book…and not in many way because it was bad, but because I would read and then would have to really think about what Mr. Jackson was asking of me.
You Were Born for More makes you take an in-depth look at your life and ask those hard questions.
I liked the fact that Mr. Jackson breaks things down and goes through them step by step, using Biblical references to help you look at how you can change your life through Divine Grace and providence. And not by using God, but making those changes in your life that will positively impact all areas of your life.
He does not sugar coat things. There will always be a bad health report. The kids may or may not be doing good in school. The job you were depending on may fall through. But, as children of God, it is dependent on us, to take these moments and delve into our faith fully, wholly and unrepentantly. Mr. Jackson recounts his own personal experiences with illness and strife to show how things came out for the better, even when the situation seemed impossible. It brings to mind something a televangelist has said many times, “In the natural it doesn’t seem like it can happen. But in the supernatural, God is always working for us, with us and through us to make those things work.” Of course, I am paraphrasing here, but you get the point, Gentle Reader.
Change is not easy. It takes a while and it take deliberate actions to do so. Mr. Jackson gives us a thorough way in which we can do this through the promises God has given us in His word. As. Mr. Jackson explains, You Were Born for More.
I was sent this book by Chosen Books, a subsidiary of Baker Publishing Group for review. I am under no obligation to give it a favorable review, but I have because I liked it.
Blessings Be on you today, Gentle Reader.
