"The thing is." That's what we say when we are at last getting to the point. The bushes have been beaten around, the chase has been cut to, and we are finally getting to the thing we've been avoiding but that now needs to be spoken. What is that thing for you? What is the thing that makes sense of your life but that you don't often talk about? What is the point of it all, the purpose, the real reason you get out of bed in the morning? From the author of The Trellis and the Vine comes an opportunity to pause and take stock of our lives, and to discover the life-changing purpose that God has for each one of us. Not some vague-Christian-cliché purpose; but a purpose that is clear and real enough to drive the decisions we make and the way we live our lives from this point on.
