The Crime of Living Cautiously

$49.99

Hardback
Unexpectedly, the moment of opportunity comes to us--the prospect of entering a reality larger than we'd guess. A spacious option opens up before us, an urgent demand that seems to call for special enterprise, life-threatening perils or summons to action. Suddenly we realize that such a chance might never come again.
  • ^^What do you do when faced with such a moment?
  • Do you sometimes get frozen into a state of inaction?
  • Do you wonder if you are wasting the talents God has given you?
  • Or if you enjoy adventure, do you struggle over whether a risk is just a reckless attempt to feed your own needs or a true calling from God?
^^Luci Shaw has learned to act with discernment in regard to motivation and calling. She has discovered a path of deep joy and fulfillment by risking the unknown in partnership with God. In this book you will find the way to break through the fear barrier and follow God to new levels.

- Publisher Luci Shaw writes about how to live fully in freedom and faith, responding to God's calling without fear.
