Change Your Trajectory by Dale. C. Bronner

Bronner wants us to be proactive and be prepared for the change coming our way. It will come. He wants us to be in the flow of what God is doing and that means a new trajectory for us.

We are in for a journey, Bronner writes. He wants us to have joy and blessings on the way. He helps us understand the difference between transition and change. He advises us to adapt, improve, observe, and connect. He reminds us that God wants us us to draw closer to Him, especially in times of confusion. We must be obedient to God's direction.

Bronner walks us through the indications of a new trajectory. He has good teaching on how to be an active participant in and not a victim of change. He reminds us the importance of our thoughts and gives skills and practices to help us, like developing a vision.

I really appreciate that his book is not a get rich kind of book. He advocates hard work. “If it was an overnight success,” he writes, “ then it was a long, long night.” (151) He wants us to be industrious and take the initiative. He helps us deal with failure and gives practical ideas for the important discipline of prayer. He weaves in lessons from the Bible throughout.

I like how encouraging Bronner is, reminding us we are here at this time by God's doing and by His grace. God has uniquely qualified each of us for a task and Bronner wants us to be competent at it. He has good suggestions to that end. I especially love his “also” principle.

This is a good book for people who are facing a transition in their life or feel God is calling them to make a change. You'll find great encouragement and practical suggestions for your journey.

My rating: 4/5 stars.
