What am I going to be when I grow up?
It’s a question that shows up frequently in LifePlanning. Whether we’re teenagers or world-weary seniors, we have a lot riding on the answer. We’re never too young to engage the future; we’re never too old to recalibrate the years that remain. Regardless of age, though, God’s will is where the quest begins. For this reason, you won’t find a job-guide or magic formula to specific employment in LifePlanning. What you’ll find, instead, is an enlarged view of your options. To explain: imagine your vocation as a picture on a wall. The picture is certainly important, but LifePlanning focuses on the larger context, the wall on which that picture hangs … the God-given life to which a mere vocation is attached.
According to King David in the Bible, the Heavenly Father knew you in your mother’s womb …Psalm 139:13. He not only knew you, He gave you special interests and skills, gifts that are yours to use as you pursue what you’re going to be when you grow up. While God cares about what we do, Holy Scripture suggests, He’s far more interested in what kind of person we’re becoming. This is the most persistent theme in the Bible. So who are you?
LifePlanning is a different kind of ebook. Each chapter begins with a scribe, an animated introduction to the chapter. Not only are the scribes fun to watch, they contain information, vital to the subject. In addition to the scribe, each chapter contains text file, along with an audiobook of that text. For a “duplexed” media experience, you can read and listen, simultaneously.
