The Big Picture

Consider Yourself Sent

I just joined WaterBrook/Multnomah's Blogging for Books team.  The concept is simple: books supplied for bloggers who will write reviews.  This is my first one, and I am already crazy about it.  

I chose the book Sent, by Hilary Alan, to be released in February. With total transparency, Alan tells the story of God tapping on her upper middle class shoulder, asking her to leave her life of ease and live in southeast Asia for a time.

Several quotes shout from the pages: 

 - "Following Jesus in obedience is worth risking our life, because He is that trustworthy."

 - "I didn't want new adventures with God to disturb our life too much."

 - "When you are taken to the end of yourself and God becomes your certainty, it deepens your relationship with Him."

 - "There is no mistaking the brokenness of our world.  We couldn't help but reflect on the myriad of holes we were seeing...holes in clothes, holes in families and holes in the hearts of the people."
If you are feeling a stirring, a need, an ache to get uncomfortable, pick up this book.  Maybe God won't call you to southeast Asia, but if you ask Him, it is certain He will point His sovereign finger to the exact spot of His will for your life.

And just like the Alan family, you, too, will consider yourself Sent.
