Practical help for understanding and following God's will for your life"God has a plan for our lives," but what does that mean in practical terms? How do we know God's will for important life decisions, like who to marry, what job to take, what church to join? How can we be free if God has a perfect plan for us? Does suffering mean we are off track? How exactly does God speak?Author Jerry Sittser explores these questions and offers a biblically based approach that is truly liberating. No matter what decisions we've already made, he points out that it is still possible to live out God's perfect will-even if we think we've married the wrong person, chosen the wrong career, or landed in some kind of serious trouble.This new edition includes study questions designed to help individuals or groups who are faced with decisions-large or small.
