Today's Verse

How to Reach Your Full Potential for God
Never Settle for Less than His Best
by Charles F. Stanley

On page 12 I read “have you settled for a settled-for life”. It is a sentence that captured my attention and made me want to learn more about how I can “be more passionate about life” and “experience all God has for me”.

Another sentence that jumped out at me was on page 27, “Your ultimate purpose is to bring Him glory by the way you live”. For me, this sentence set the tone for the rest of the book, in what ways can I bring glory to Him through pursing each of the 7 essentials that the book is divided into:A clean heart, a clear mind, using your gifts, a healthy body, right relationships, a balanced schedule, and taking God approved risks.

These essentials are all very practical and useful. I will use this book often, referring back to it for a long, long time. For most people, reaching your full potential will not happen overnight. It takes time and effort. I am blessed by this book because it has helped me to refocus and I what I need to work on first is finding a balanced schedule!
