My Review

Don't we think God has that perfect job for us? You know, the one that pays well, is fulfilling, and is the one we've been dreaming of for years? Day sets the record straight. Our dream job may have nothing at all to do with our calling from God. In fact, God's calling may be a big surprise. God has something much grater in mind for us that what we do for a living.

I like how Day clarifies our calling from God. Rather than to a career, God calls us to a relationship with Him, to loving others, to glorifying Him no matter our job. Day does a great job describing that life to which God has called us.

Yes, God might call us to something specific. I was surprised when Day showed from Scripture that sometimes God's call is to a task we are not suited for nor want to do. (Think Moses and Jonah.)

Just when I thought there would be no practical suggestions for determining what's next, Day came through with some good ideas. He provides lots of questions near the end of the book to help us think through what we want to do with our lives with respect to career.

This is a helpful book for Christians thinking about career or job change. You'll just have the opportunity to think about what God wants in your life before you delve into what you want.

My rating: 4/5 stars.

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.
