What to Do When You Dont Know What to Do by David JeremiahAfter hearing much about the knowledgeable Dr. David Jeremiah, I was so pleased to finally get the chance to read one of his books. What did I find out? He is a knowledgeable man of God, with much wisdom to share to Christians.
What to Do When You Dont Know What to Do focuses on the book of James for the main scriptural readings. Chapters in this book include:
What to Do When the Heats Turned Up
What to Do When Wrong Seems Right
What to Do When the Mirror Doesnt Lie
What to Do When Justice Isnt Blind
What to Do When Faith Doesnt Work
What to Do When Your Tongue Isnt Tied
What to Do When Wisdom Is Foolish
What to Do When Worship Turns to War
What to Do When Your Goals Arent Gods
What to Do When Your Net Worth Is Worthless
What to Do When Youre in a Hurry and God Isnt
What to Do When Pain Leads to Prayer
Although each topic might not hit home for you, theres still so much to learn from. I soaked in excellent points and Biblical references from each chapter, even if I dont experience the exact issue at hand. Im sure my notes from each topic will help at a later point in my life. For example...
This is the kind of book where if you were to read it 5 different times in your life, you would glean new information each time. Just because something didnt apply to you the first time you read it, it will likely mean more later on, and vice versa.
Along the way, I also learned much that I didnt know before about James. I had either forgotten (or maybe didnt even know) that James was one of Joseph and Marys sons. How could I not remember that Jesus earthly brother contributed his writings as one of the books of the Bible? It was amazing to me to be able to see what kind of man James was in his special situation, as I was guided step-by-step through his writings -- with new eyes this time, thanks to the author.
According to James, faith is made perfect by works. (Chapter 5, What to Do When You Dont Know What to Do)
All of David Jeremiahs points, arguments, and actionable steps are backed by scriptures. Additionally, he often quotes from fellow religious leaders of our time and preachers from days of old. Hes well-rounded in the knowledge he dispenses to the reader.
Included in the back of the book, youll also find additional material and questions to use either in personal or group study. A remarkable resource to utilize while reading the book.
Thanks to the author and Netgalley for the free review copy.
Read This If You 'Don't Know What You're Doing With Your Life'
Life is full of uncertainty. Risk is a part of every choice. The threat of failure looms around every corner. You can get stuck before you start, not knowing what to do. So what do you do when this happens, when fear assails you? Do you stand still or start moving?
This leaves us feeling stuck, bringing with it feelings of uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure. In other words, vulnerable. Feeling vulnerable or overwhelmed could be a red flag, a time when we need to pause and intentionally think of what the next step looks like.

MORE IN LIFE
It has arrived: You've once again reached a point in your life where you are not sure what to do with your life. Maybe you've recently gone through a divorce or breakup. Maybe you've recently been let go by your employer or you quit your job. Maybe school has recently ended or your time studying abroad is coming to a close. Regardless of what has recently ended, the stress and pressure of needing to figure out what you're supposed to do next can feel about the same.
If you ask any young adult what their primary stressor in life is, it's likely something that relates to uncertainty. If you were to boil it down to a sentence, it would be something along the lines of: "I don't know what I'm doing with my life. How many times have you heard someone say that? How many times have you said that? Probably a lot. The idea that we should know is a heaping pile of socially crafted bullshit that's been superimposed on our psyches since kindergarten, and it's holding us back. Nobody -- not one of us -- knows "what we're doing with our lives.
