Looking for God’s will for your life?
Stuck in a dead-end job and not sure what to do next? Confused by the options—or lack of options—for a career path? Desperately trying to hear God’s voice and frustrated by His silence?
Daniel Ryan Day can relate. From struggling to find direction for college, to doors slamming shut on his dream job, to getting fired from a job he was finding success in—all Day wanted was to answer God’s call on his life. If only he could figure out what that was.
He found the answers in Scripture—where they had been all along—and finally God’s will made sense. Day had expected that “dream job” and “God’s call” were the same thing. What he discovered set him free from frustration so he could confidently step forward in God’s will. It allowed him to thrive. And it will do the same for you.
What’s Next includes discussion questions to help you process what you’ve learned through Scripture and guide you toward your next steps.
My thoughts: This is an excellent book that clarifies that sometimes our calling from God comes for something that we never thought of. I like that Day points out that sometimes we may feel like we are not suited for the job, due to it not playing on our strengths (think Moses), but isn't that when God really shows His glory? If you are feeling conflicted on where your calling in, this is an excellent book to pick up!
I received this book from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.

More from Daniel
Searching for your next step in life can be exciting yet overwhelming, intriguing yet stressful, adventurous yet painful. “What’s next?” is a question everyone asks and struggles with at some point in his or her life, and many people end up asking this question multiple times. I have a friend who’s 18 and trying to figure out if he should go to college or not. I have another friend who’s 21 and can’t decide what major to choose. I work with some people who are graduating from college and are taking their first step toward a career. I just got off the phone with someone I deeply care about who’s trying to keep his dream afloat while also paying the bills. All of these men and women are asking “What’s next?” All are searching for answers.
For some of us, “What’s next?” is a question of dreams— What could the future look like if I did this or that? There’s an excitement that comes with thinking about all the possibilities and potential. For others, the question is stressful, and the answer may require a major transition, like moving away from family or changing jobs. Thinking about the future carries with it equal parts of angst and anticipation. “What’s next” always ventures into the unknown. If you’re asking “What’s next?”— join the club! You’re not alone.
What’s Next: Your Dream Job, God’s Call and A Life That Sets You Free is a book is for dreamers and practicalists (no, this is not a real word, but it should be). It’s for those who are excited about transition, and those who dread it. It’s a book about the hope and freedom that comes with asking God what He wants for your life, and then hearing His voice through the pages of Scripture as He directs your steps.
