All the places to go, How will you know review (Tyndale Blog Network)

I read All the Places to Go . . . How Will You Know?: God Has Placed before You an Open Door. What Will You Do?, in exchange for honest review from Tyndale Blog Network. The book was written by John Ortberg and published by Tyndale House. I received a paperback book. The book's genre is Christian non-fiction.

God never wanted people to be stagnant and be content where they are.  God wanted people to go and grow. He opens doors and windows and wants us to open them. Move forward. Progress. The book starts out with a question: If you had to summarize your life in six words ,what would they be?  On page 3, Ortberg presents six word stories about famous people in the bible. For example, Abraham: Left Ur. Had baby. Still Laughing. 

Our lives never go as we plan. I never wanted any kids, but I got two. I never thought I would finish two degrees. I never thought I be living in Texas again. I never thought about blogging until I was at home alone with a newborn baby. Our lives can change at any time, at any age. The book says we do need the ability to recognize when a door is open or we can miss out on God's opportunities. Open doors also require an act of faith and obedience. You do have to move instead of being content, where you are.

I wonder how many doors, I have missed. How many doors have you missed.

You can purchase the book on Amazon in Kindle and Paperback Format.
