“Is something missing from your life? Are you aware that God has more for you? Seek Him. He will give you a chazown. And not just any, but one that is tailored specifically for you.”
—Craig Groeschel

Hard to Pronounce, Easy to Discover
 
Chazown (kha-ZONE) is the Hebrew word for the dream, revelation, or vision God was thinking about when he made you. You’re one of a kind, placed on earth with a plan that’s yours alone to carry out. God isn’t hiding it. He wants you to know and embrace it!

Fulfilling your chazown is one of the most enjoyable, rewarding things you’ll ever do—because the blueprint is customized by your architect, the One who knows you best. That doesn’t mean it’s always easy though, which is why author Craig Groeschel provides plenty of battle-tested ways to stay on course.

Why waste another day aiming for the wrong target—or none at all? Take your first steps toward pursuing God’s chazown for you!

My Review:

We go through life feeling like there is so much more we can offer. Sometimes we even feel like what we do doesn’t matter, we feel lost. I’m guilty of feeling this way, sometimes I sit and think why is my life so mundane. It wan’t until I picked up Craig Groeschel’s book, Chazown: Discover and Pursue God’s Purpose for Your Life that I found the true meaning of my life. First of all, I know you are probably wondering what Chazown means: Chazown (kha-ZONE) is a hebrew word for the dream, revelation, or vision God was thinking about when he made you. (taken from the back cover)

Psalm 139:14 says, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” (NIV) We are made in God’s image, we are one of kind, there is no one else like us. We each have a purpose, a plan that is ours to carry out, God has trusted us with it. Sometimes we are uncertain of those plans. Chazown will help you to understand that plan for our lives.

Pastor Craig Groeschel provides for us step by step instructions to uncover our chazown, there is personal stories that show these principles at work, there is also “You’re the Author” activities, along with “Key Thoughts” that capture and make it easy to remember crucial concepts and a study guide that can be used individually or with a small group.

Overall, this is a great book, a real eye opener to me. It has helped me to see the purpose for my life.

I received a copy of this book for free, a favorable review was not required, all opinions expressed are my own.
