“Once you’ve decided that you’re going to live—no mean feat for some of us—how do you figure out what you’re supposed to do with that life?”
How can you life faithfully when you’re not quite sure where life is taking you? How do you find joy and purpose in the midst of the uncertain, the unfinished, the mess? Inspired and comforted by Thomas Merton’s famous prayer that begins, “My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going,” award-winning writer and teacher Greg Garrett looks back at his own recent journey and tells stories that will speak to anyone who has ever felt lost along the way.
In this follow-up to his critically acclaimed memoir, Crossing Myself, Garret proves himself a provocative, engaging, and truly helpful companion on the often meandering, sometimes confusing path of discipleship. His reflections on family, relationship, faith, and vocation will inspire you to reflect on your own journey and discover how God might be working in your life.
“Greg Garrett defies the norm in this candid book, which describes his unflinching effort to discern God's will for his life. Along the way he learns that there is more than one crossroads in a life, and that his true call has more to do with engaging certain verbs--teach, preach, counsel, write, worship, love--than it does with gaining approval to do a certain job. This is a worthwhile book for any Christian, but especially for those whose sense of vocation is ready for revival.” --Barbara Brown Taylor, author of An Altar in the World: A Geography of Faith
