Destiny by T.D. Jakes Book Review


Remember feeling a pull, sensing a divine guide that was leading you to the right place or person? DESTINY, that inner compass, directs you to fulfillment of your highest purpose. When you reflect on your life, you may be amazed that your greatest moments resulted from circumstances that you did not control or initiate. You were destined!

Stepping into your destiny means fulfilling the role you were created to play in life. You thrive and find the great elixir of contentment when you have the courage to pursue your true purpose.

Life offers more when destiny is our focus! Our divine purpose maneuvers us past challenges, pains, and shortcuts and even what appears on the surface to be failure. On deeper reflection, we understand them as catalysts that shift us toward authentic self-identity, greater exposure, and bold life adventures.

Whether you are just starting out, starting over, or wondering if there is greater success than what you've already accomplished, now is the time to reset your inner compass. Clear your path of distractions and disruptions. Correct places where you have veered off course. Get unstuck. Embrace your God-given purpose and, with this revelatory guide from T.D. Jakes, dare to pursue the unseen order in your life circumstances that is your DESTINY.

My Thoughts:
  Bishop T.D. Jakes offers a very inspirational message throughout Destiny and invites the reader to embrace that force that seems to drive them a certain direction.  When rhyme nor reason can explain why you chose a certain path, it's just a feeling, a certain inward force compelling you to move, you can't help but question it at times.  Destiny reminds us to welcome that force.  We are predestined to do certain things without explanation.  

The reader is able to connect with Jakes' personal writing style.  He writes as if he is speaking directly to the reader and challenges the reader as he has in previous books to step out of your comfort zone.  This is a great read and I was glad to gift it to Bishop Mildred B. Hines of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church.  Bishop Hines is the first female elected bishop of the A.M.E. Zion Church.  She introduced several of us to Bishop Jakes' previous book, Instinct, about a year ago and I was interested in her take on Bishop Jakes' latest. I'm confident she will enjoy this book as well.

Overall, a great read and perfect for gifting to spiritual leaders in your congregation and sharing during biblical studies and spiritual counseling sessions.
