Intrusions from outside invade our lives daily. Is it possible they might be opportunities from God? Sharing the lessons she's learned, Priscilla Shirer reflects on the book of Jonah, showing you how to experience the freedom that comes from going with God - even when the world seems to be against you. Paperback.
Interruptions. They're aggravating. Sometimes infuriating. They make us want to tell people what we think of them. But how we handle interruptions actually tell us more about ourselves.
The prophet Jonah's existence was interrupted by a call of God that would require a complete change of life. And it scared him enough to make him run in the opposite direction. Yet, what seemed to him to be an unnecessary and useless interruption was really an opportunity for Jonah to be involved in something the likes of which the Old Testament world had never seen before. This interruption was really a divine intervention and it held more adventure and possibility than he could have ever imagined.
We, like Jonah, tend to run from interruptions. When major pains and minor problems cause a hiccup in our carefully calculated plans and goals we head in the opposite direction. Who knows what we might be missing by running from what could very well be God’s means of steering us towards the most magnificent outcome of our lives. Jonah could tell us a story or two. So could you. And so does popular conference speaker and author Priscilla Shirer in this very personal account of opportunities lost and lessons learned—and the amazing freedom and fulfillment that comes from going with God even when He's going against your grain.
Priscilla Shirer is a Bible teacher who enjoys bringing the stories of Scripture to life. She is also the author of popular books including One in a Million, A Jewel in His Crown, and Discerning the Voice of God. Priscilla is married to her best friend Jerry with whom she founded Going Beyond Ministries. And while Priscilla loves ministry, she prioritizes her role as wife and mother. Between writing and studying, she spends the majority of her time cleaning up after their three fabulous sons.
About the Book
What if Jonah had seen God's interruption for what it truly was - a divine intervention that held more adventure and possibility than any other thing he could be doing at the time? What could've felt any better than being directly in the center of God's will?
Yet we play it that same way - always running from major pains and minor problems that just don't seem to suit us at the moment. Who knows what we're missing by being so interruption avoidant? In this very personal accout of opportunities lost and lessons learned, popular conference speaker and author Priscilla Shirer shows how to embrace the amazing freedom and fulfillment that comes from going with God even when He's going against your grain.
