Are you living in your sweet spot? Chazown by Craig Groeschel

Chazown (pronounced Khaw-ZONE) is the Hebrew word for vision.

Are you living your dream?  Does your life line up with the vision God has given you?

A small percentage of people can say ‘yes’ to that question.  The rest, if honest, will say,

“well, I’m not quite on center” or

“Hah!  No” or

“How can anyone know what God wants?”

Whether you are sort of living your dream, find yourself completely in left field (assuming God hasn’t called you to left field), or can’t figure out what God wants you to do with your life, I think you will get a lot out of Craig Groeschel’s new book.

Craig says “God placed you on earth for a purpose that’s solely yours to fulfill. Dig under the surface of your life to discover and pursue your Chazown.”

When you read this book, be prepared to become uncomfortable!  Craig hits on every aspect of life, and shows you how to help fix things so that you can become what God intended you to be.  You will learn to use spiritual disciplines to stop wasting your life, and instead, flow into the person God created you to be.

One thought that I walked away with is “my body is on loan from God.”  No kidding – those were the words in my head as I tried to ignore the need to get out of bed and exercise this morning.  Every area that Craig touches is right on, and needed for each of our lives.

This book is an easy read – broken up into mini chapters that are just right for a busy life.    The first part of the book just talks about your personal vision, and how to figure out what God wants you to be.  The last half goes into five areas of your life that need to be right.  Even if you are moving along quite well, you could probably use the tune up.

I want to also recommend that you watch the online sermons at the ‘who do you think you are’ series seems to be a good companion for this book.

Then, check out the Chazown web site for fantastic helps and a boost in the right direction.

Today is your day.  God does have a plan for your life. You can be all that God has called you to be. Chazown is a great start.
