Unlike many of you I’ve never even hear of Bruce Wilkinson before I got this book yet with the title like You Were Born for This I still had some expectations of what this book might be about. Here is what I thought it would be about: a happy message describing how we are all special, made in the image of God to prosper, be blessed, and live a Godly life. Here is the total opposite: it was about how WE can be a blessing to other, how WE can be the miracle that we seek, how we can notice the small miracles all around us and how much of an impact we can have on the world around us. I do not like with how the title was printed on the cover, because the part about miracles is in small letters at the bottom of the page when it should be bolded front and center because this is what the book essentially was about.
The book was inspiring, made me want to do random miracles for others as Bruce describes through his stories. Made me laugh, made me think, most importantly it made a change within me. Wondering if this book is the same old stuff you keep reading about and hearing from Christian authors, speakers, and preachers, it’s not. It challenges the reader quite unlike anywhere or anything I have read before.
You’re wondering about miracles in your life, or how you can experience them? This is the book for you; don’t think you know what this book is about before you read it. The old saying holds true here, don’t judge a book by its cover because within its pages lies a blessing not only for you but for everyone you will come in contact with. Thank you WaterBrook Multnomah for giving me a copy in exchange for my honest review.
