Trying to determine what direction to take in life is not always easy. As Christians, we pray and read scripture, seeking God’s guidance for the choices we make. But sometimes, trying to guess God’s will can feel a little bit like being a game show contestant—hoping we’ve picked the right showcase door.With so many to choose from, discerning which door of opportunity is the best can be difficult.Is there a way to really know which door to choose? Author Cheri Cowell believes that God offers us many doors to choose from as we transition through life. And she understands how confusing it can be to decide which door is best. She explains that the key to making confident decisions is to avoid trying to guess God’s ’will’ and focus instead on discerning God’s ’way’. In Direction, Cowell presents six questions to ask when it comes to decision-making. She examines each question and shares examples of how others—from Bible times to present day—used these questions to find God’s way in the story of their lives. Through observation and exploration, Cowell shows how determining your own answers to these important questions will guide you in the discernment process. From career options to medical decisions to relationship questions, you’ll learn how to know for sure what door to choose.Direction includes reflection questions for individual or group study. It will provide you with the wisdom to make confident decisions,the understanding to enrich your prayer life,the eagerness to know God better, and the willingness to take more risks in life’s most important decisions.
