Book Review-“The Purpose Room”

screen-shot-2017-01-15-at-11-26-57-pm

I just completed Heather Lindsey’s The Purpose Room. I bought it on a whim one day during my rest break at work. I guess you can say my job inspires me to find my true purpose.

I’m still hoping its something far, far away from my cubical.

Nevertheless, I purchased the book in hopes that it would allow me to understand my purpose and found that it offered a lot of great insight.

“You cannot Continue in your past, or current, sin and expect to see your purpose tomorrow.” -Heather Lindsey,  The Purpose Room

Boom.

That quote from the book really hit me. I feel as if I have been praying for God to reveal my purpose for at least a year, yet I still sit here weary. However, throughout that time of praying for it I was lazy in my work life, my spiritual life, and my social life. How can I expect God to reveal my purpose to me when I have just hit my 5th day in a row of watching non-stop television in my free time? How can I expect for Him to reveal His big picture for my purpose, when I am performing so poorly in the small picture He is providing for me right now?

That quote alone would take you to a whole knew world. Still, there were several others that would inspire the reader to find what is specifically in their lives that is keeping them from finding and living in their purpose.

Is it fear?

Disobedience?

Laziness?

or  have you been contaminated with the things of this world?

There is so much more I can say about this book, but it’s Sunday night, at 11:18pm, I’m kind of tired, and I don’t want to give myself an excuse not to post. I think I will take some notes, so that I can jot down some of the most significant points that she made and how I plan to incorporate it into my life this year.

Overall, it was a great and quick read. I would suggest it for any girl looking to be used by God through her purpose.

Live purposefully,

Whit
