Just Do Something, A Liberating Approach to Finding God’s Will…
OR How to Make a Decision Without Dreams, Visions, Fleeces, Impressions, Open Doors, Random Bible Verses, Casting Lots, Liver Shivers, Writing in the Sky, Etc., by Kevin DeYoung.
If you struggle with every major decision in life, waiting for “open doors” or a “sign” from God that you are making the best decision, within God’s will, then this book is for you. You will discover how to make a wise decision about who to marry, where to live, a career or choosing your college major. What if you’ve already blown it and made major mistakes in life choices? There is good news here too. God loves to help people, to bind up the brokenhearted, to give us a second chance. You will find huge amounts of wisdom in this small book.
DeYoung encourages readers of all ages to stop obsessing over whether we are in the right career, going to the right college or marrying the “one” right person. He says Christians have become spiritually paralyzed, unable to make a decision until they “know” God’s will. DeYoung urges Christians to stop pleading with God to show us His will for our lives and confidently move forward and “just do something,” anything with our lives. If we are seeking God’s Kingdom first, loving God above all else, obeying God’s commands and desiring God’s glory instead of our own, we can feel secure in making our own good choices and have faith we will find ourselves in the center of God’s will.

Why I read this book
DeYoung writes small concise and to the point books. He doesn’t beat around the bush. I read his book Crazy Busy, another small book, in the past and really loved it. The only reason I picked this one up (while on a marriage cruise where he was speaking) was because I so enjoyed his first one. I was not disappointed and you won’t be either.
