If you’ve ever doubted that there is meaning to your life or if you’re struggling with challenges that make you feel hopeless or disappointed, Discovering One's Purpose by Dr. James A. Gordon may be for you. Written to inspire fellow Christians, it provides a biblical basis for understanding the importance of finding purpose in our existence. Beginning with Divine creation itself, the book guides us to discover our unique place in life. Without purpose, life is meaningless. With purpose comes direction. With direction comes the setting of goals. With the effort to achieve goals comes success. With success comes spiritual fulfillment. We have the freedom to choose the paths of our lives, but discovering our purpose allows us to maximize how well we live them.
In Discovering One's Purpose, Dr. James A. Gordon urges us not to give up on finding our purpose no matter the challenges we may be facing. I was inspired by his message. His words are both heartfelt and scripture-based. He speaks as someone who struggled in life, who grew up in a family filled with love but with few means or opportunities for education. Leaving home as a young man to make his way in the world, he knew periods of homelessness and hunger. His experiences taught him the importance of discovering and pursuing his unique purpose in life. Now a minister, he calls each of us to seek our God-given purpose, to find our special gifts, and to live happier and more productive lives thereby.
