In the Meantime: The Practice of Proactive Waitingby Rob Brendle
Synopses & Reviews
You’re young? Check.
You’ve felt God’s tap on the shoulder, like he’s got something for you to do with your life? Right.
But you’re not exactly sure what it is, or how to get there? Exactly.
If that’s you, then here’s a great guide to help you find your way to whatever it is God has for you in life.
You may be surprised to learn that a very famous person in the Bible found himself in a similar place. David was just watching somesheep, but God made it clear he was destined to do something a bit more meaningful and important–David was going to be king. As a young man he had to learn how to “live into” his calling–become like a king before ever putting on the crown.
You probably won’t be joining the royal family any time soon. But you can still learn a lot about life–your life, your destiny–by taking a good look at David’s life.
David had a dream and caught a glimpse of his purpose. He just didn’t know how to realize it, how to live until he did, and how to wait for it proactively. Maybe that’s you, too. In this amusing, amazing, and very surprising guidebook, Rob Brendle can help you get there from here.
A practical, biblical, and humorous guide draws on the life of David to illustrate both the dilemma and opportunity of not knowing what to do when one senses a calling from God. Original.
