Soulprint by Mark Batterson

Soulprint: Discovering Your Divine Destiny by Mark Batterson is the first book of his that I've read and it was a fantastic book. One thing I really enjoyed is his writing style; it keeps you interested and wanting to continue to read. Mark desires that through this book you will find out who you are. Now before you think this is some mediocre self-help book, this book is described as "a self-discovery book that puts God at the center rather than self." If you can read with an open heart and mind, I trust that God will lead you to discover things about yourself you may not have known before. Personally, this is a book I'm going to have to read again for sure. There is also a section of discussion questions at the end of the book to provide another resource as you look deeper into the purpose of this book. Mark opens the book with this statement,
"There has never been and never will be anyone else like you. But that isn't a testament to you. It's a testament to the God who created you."
This book really helps realign your focus that your identity is not really yours at all. We are who God made us to be. It's through who we are in Christ that we truly find ourselves. Throughout this book, Mark uses the life of David as an example. David began his life as a shepherd and eventually became a King. Now David wasn't perfect, but what David is remembered for is being a man after God's own heart. You definitely can't get that title because of anything we have done, it's all because of God's work in you. Who we are is truly a testament to what God is doing through us. Focus on Him and you will find who you are. A great reminder for all of us.
