Who is on God's "guest list" for your life . . . and why?
The answers may surprise you.Through touching true stories
and inspiring insight Debbie Macomber takes readers on a
journey to discover the shaping influence others have on
us and the power we have to shape and influence those
whose paths cross ours.Each of us have "influencers" that
have affected our lives--some from a distance, some
through word or deed, some through example, be it good or
Often we don't even recognize the deep impact others have
had and how God has used them to shape us into who we are.
By pausing to recognize these influences we begin to grasp
how God's guest list had a purpose far beyond what we
imagined. We begin to see the seeds of influence that grew
into our personal values and character.In some people God
invites into our lives, we see only what appears to be
painful or negative influence. We bear the scars of
disappointment, hurt, betrayal, and pain.
Here Macomber redirects our attention, opening our eyes to
how those experiences prompted strength, resilience,
resolve, decisions, and choices about how we would change
and who we would become. In other instances, God has
surprised us with just the people at just the right time
to support, teach, lead, or love us, but perhaps we
haven't quite recognized God's timing and work through
these "guests."But perhaps the greatest treasure this book
holds is the power to grasp our own power to influence
others, and even to anticipate what lives we have yet to
touch. In the tradition ofHow to Win Friends and Influence
People, Macomber casts a vision to seize every opportunity
to be a positive and faithful influence on others. With
this realization comes the willingness and anticipation to
live with the door of our lives wide open to greet each
new life God brings across the threshold.God's Guest
Listis filled with true stories and rich insight that will
forever change how you see the people in your life.
