Under the Sun: Discover Your Calling and Live a Meaningful Life

 
9781511773348: Under the Sun: Discover Your Calling and Live a Meaningful Life

You might think finding your calling is difficult, but it doesn't have to be that way.

What if there was a simpler, more practical approach to discovering what it is you're meant to do in this world?

Through personal experiences, biblical case studies and modern day examples, Andrew Gilmore gives you a step by step guide to uncovering how your unique passions, skills, and resources combine to allow you to live a life of fulfillment and excellence for the glory of God. In short: Under the Sun will show you how to live a life of purpose.

Too many Christians are waiting for a burning bush or blinding light instead of proactively petitioning God. But waiting around eventually leads to apathy or angst.

Stay in this funk for too long and you'll find yourself disillusioned with life. And, if left unresolved, disillusionment leads to anger and hopelessness--a dangerous combination for both spiritual and physical health.

But what if there's a better way?

What if every action in your life had meaning no matter how painful or mundane?

What if you lived a life of fulfillment rather than one of angst and uneasiness? If you looked forward to every day because of the opportunities it holds?

What if your life was marked by excitement? If in the quiet moments your heart leapt in your chest at the thought of your calling?

In Under the Sun, Andrew Gilmore dares to believe you can and must live your life this way, and he'll show you how. You'll learn:

-What the world desperately needs from you
-How to identify your purpose
-4 steps to live a life of excellence
-How to establish a daily habit of prayer and reading God's word
-The 3 step process to discovering what God has called you to do

But do we really need yet another book about calling? Why bother?

Hundreds of authors have written hundreds of books on the subject. They have written about passion, vocation, meaning and purpose. Do you really need another one?

The problem is that many of these books fail to give you the proper foundation on which to build a life worth living. They ask you to consider your calling without first considering He who calls you.

In this omission they make the classic mistake of confusing purpose and calling, often using the terms interchangeably. Truth is, your calling is not your purpose. Your calling is simply your implementation of that purpose. Try to pursue the former without the latter and you'll come to the same conclusion Solomon did, that everything is meaningless under the sun.

But place the Creator at the forefront of your life, and He will fulfill you. He will provide you meaning, and yes, He will reveal to you your calling. In this context you'll live the best possible life, leveraging your strengths to become who God created you to be.

God is calling you. Are you ready to listen?
