It's inevitable. Sooner or later, our desires will collide with God's heart. His purposes are far higher than ours, his wisdom far deeper, and his love far wider. From our limited perspective, we think we know what God should do to bless our lives. We have dreams for our careers, our marriage, our kids, and every other aspect of life. Sometimes, we're right on track, but today, tomorrow, or a year from now, we'll realize our hopes and dreams have crashed. At that moment, we have a decision to make: Will we shake our fist at God, walk away, or cling to Him more than ever before? The moment our desires collide with God may seem like the end of a dream, but in reality, it's the beginning of fresh insights and renewed hope.
To some degree, all of us have faulty assumptions about God and life. We want it all-and we think we deserve it all. Sooner or later, we get a wake-up call. Our desires collide with God's heart, and we realize His purposes are far bigger than we ever dreamed. When the collision occurs, we realize we've been wrong about many things. At that moment, we have a choice: Will we walk away from God, shake our fist at Him, or cling to Him like never before? In the chapters of this book, Ben Dailey shows how to respond to collision with God in every aspect of life: marriage, parenting, work, church, and leadership. A collision with God's heart isn't the end of your life's dream. It's the beginning.
