Just Do Something

As you can see from the side panel off to the left, I have a new book coming out. Just Do Something: A Liberating Approach to Finding God's Will (Moody Publishers) will be released April 1, which means it should hit the brick-and-mortar and online stores during the last week in March.

The gist of the book is that too many of us spend too much time trying to divine God's will and too little time striving to obey the plain commands of Scripture. God's will is not a corn maze or magic eight ball. His will is our sanctification. God promises to direct our steps all throughout life, but he never promises to show us what each step is ahead of time. Too many of us are prone to passivity and indecision, because doing nothing feels more spiritual (and less risky) than doing something. So we stumble around in chains of subjective impressions and wander here and there and in and out of our parent's basement.

God's will is not a bullseye to hit, but a life to live.

For Chapter 1 of Just Do Something go here.
