Each of us has dreams. Sometimes as Christians we fear our dreams are contradictory to what we are called to do as believers. According to Phil Cornelius author of 'Today is the Day', "we all have dreams God has placed in our hearts." but it is up to us to break down the barriers which keep, "us from fulfilling them."
Cornelius breaks his book into three sections:
Discovering your God-Given dreams where he discusses how to discover if your dreams is from God. Once you are sure he tells you using Biblical examples how to transform your dreams into goals and then cover them with prayers.
In the second section he talks about Embracing your God-Given dreams. He says once, "God has given you a dream," it is time do something, "most of hate do: take a risk," and move forward to make the dream a reality. Again using Biblical examples Cornelius lays out a plan on how to develop an action habit in order to become a doer. He says no goal is to large and overwhelming as long as you, "break them down into bite sized pieces."
In the final section of the book, Moving to the Next level, Cornelius shows how any God-given dream is not meant to be a solo effort. Each person who dreams to do something for God must recruit their, "dream team," of people who can offer the right advice and help lead the dream in the right direction which is helping others find God. Every person who has a God-given dream must choose to be a blessing.
I have read a lot of books on setting and achieving goals, both Christian and secular, and this book is one of the best. 'Today is the Day' not only offers the tools to help anyone realize their God-given dreams there are actions steps at the end of each chapters to help you put those tools into action, in order to help you realize God can do bigger miracles than you ever realized.
This book is geared to believers, those who have accepted Christ as their savior and believe God is in control. Each of the concepts in the book is backed up by Biblical passages.
