Heard a lot about Erwin Raphael McManus.
A friend has lent me a copy to read, looking forward to sharing some thoughts on this blog.
Here’s a quote or two to kick us off,
“Somehow we all know to play it safe is to lose the game”
“However mundane a moment may appear, the miraculous may wait to be unwrapped within it”.
And here is a blurb about it,
“Using the biblical account of Israel’s war with the Philistines, McManus compares Saul with Jonathan to illustrate the tremendous impact possible in a life of purpose and adventure as opposed to a life of routine, apathy, and missed opportunities . Seizing Your Divine Momement will help you understand the potential of a small moment combined with personal courage. Such moments must not be missed. They are the place where destiny is shaped and divine life ripples outward. These moments are everywhere, though you can often fail to recognize them. You need a fearless, ready stance, believing that God wants to use you as a catalyst for change.
Learn to recognize your divine moment and lay hold of it with force. Put and end to passive observation, paralyzed by the need for perfect opportunity, and start seizing the raw, unshaped potential of your life with God.
