Why bother giving your life direction if you are going to end up in a box anyway in a few years? That may be a harsh way of looking at reality, but it is the truth in the heart of most people. Our soul will eventually leave our body and we will leave the remains behind. What happens in the middle is important. The decisions you make today will mark the rest of your life.
There Is Help
Pastor Craig Groeschel’s new book Divine Direction is all about steps that will change your life. I could simply list every step, but you need more out of this book than just those few things. You need the life that Craig’s words bring to every situation. If you are like most people, you will find yourself in an area where things do not make sense at some point in your life. Things may be going great one minute and completely worthless the next. How we respond to these instances are a choice.
One of the main things to take away from the book is that there are three reasons people regret things at the end of their life. They either did not start, keep, or stop doing something. Each of those are powerful decisions and times in our life that we must weigh. We must know when to start something in order to accomplish what God has laid out before us. We must have wisdom to stop something when the time is over. In the middle, we must know when to keep going and keep pressing towards the goal that is in front of our eyes.
Get It Now
If you are in a season of life where you feel a stirring in your soul to do something (whether to start or stop), you need to read this book.

Every day we make choices. And those choices accumulate and eventually become our life story. What would your life look like if you became an expert at making those choices?
In this inspiring guidebook, New York Times bestselling author Craig Groeschel shows how the choices that are in your power, if aligned with biblical principles, will lead to a life you’ve never imagined.
Divine Directionwill help you seek wisdom through seven principles. You’ll consider one thing to stop that’s hindering you; how to start a new habit to re-direct your path; where you should stay committed; and when you should go even if it’s easier to stay. The book also includes criteria that will help you feel confident in the right choice, and encourages you with principles for trusting God with your decisions.
What story do you want to tell about yourself? God is dedicated to the wonderful plan he’s laid out for you. The achievable and powerful steps in Divine Direction take you there one step at a time, big, or small.
