It’s a simple, straightforward book that fires straight into your heart. Francis’ way of cutting through our excuses and asking us point blank, in a manner that demands a mere “yes” or “no” presses us to make room for the Spirit to lead us in our every day. And though the insights weren’t new, the urgency with which he writes is — and it demands movement and action. It’s a great wake up call, and definitely worth the two or three hours needed to read this short book.
I hope this doesn’t spoil anything, but here’s the best quote of the book:
“I think a lot of us need to forget about God’s will for my life. God cares more about our response to His Spirit’s leading today, in this moment, than about what we intend to do next year. In fact, the decisions we make next year will be profoundly affected by the degree to which we submit to the Spirit right now, in today’s decisions.”
