My Thoughts: Ever since my husband met Mark Batterson a few years ago, we've enjoyed reading his very interesting take on life through a christians's perspective.
I love the way he begins this book...Run TO the Roar. Most of us are afraid of the roar (the challenge) so we tend to run FROM the roar but Mark Batterson encourages us to wake-up and live with purpose. Quit being afraid of the life/dream that God has for you. This brings us to the subtitle of this book...If Your Dream Doesn't Scare You, You're Dream Is Too Small.
Also, he encourages us to not be afraid of achieving what we would deem impossible. Don't we all have an impossible dream that God could/would make possible. And, sometimes, our dream doesn't have to be a multimillion mission, sometimes our dream is just quit our present job and go onto something better. All dreams are not the same but all dreams do require the faith to carry them out.
I found this to be such an encouraging read! Encouraging me to take up my dream and believe that with God all things are possible . . . just believe and be willing for my God given dream.
