Divine Alignment - Book Review

Author: Squire Rushnell
Publisher: Howard Books

Book Description:

You received a phone call out of the blue; or you bumped into someone who led you to a new job, a new relationship, or opportunity that totally changed your life. You probably even said, "Wow, what a coincidence I met so and so." But did you ever stop to ask what caused that person to be right there, at that exact moment, in your path? It was Divine Alignment: the arrangement of coincidences into a pattern of alignment so astonishing they could have come only from a higher source.

In this inspiring new work, Squire Rushnell shows readers how they can navigate life's thorniest hurdles, rediscover the deep meaning and impact of personal prayer, and develop the individual conviction and wherewithal it takes to reach their full potential and fulfill their most ambitious dreams by honoring the book's seven easy-to-follow steps.

In his charmingly avuncular and wonderfully optimistic voice, Squire shares moving stories from his own and others' lives to show the awesome strength inherent in what he calls God's Positioning System, or GPS. All of us, he assures readers, can use our own personal GPS to grow more closely aligned with God to become vastly more effective, successful, and fufilled in our relationships, careers, and everything we do.

My Thoughts:

Squire reminds us to talk to God about all things big and small. In today's rush-filled days, sometimes it's a challenge to pray about the 'little things'. It seems like we remember prayer when something major happens. Oftentimes, we have 'feelings' or 'urges' to do things, for example going a different route or make an unexpected stop. There are also times when we have choices between doing what's right and what's wrong. You have the urge to do what's right; however, at times, you choose the wrong action. This 'feeling' or 'urge' is your inner compass talking to you.

Overall, Divine Alignment  reminds us of what we were taught growing up. Say your prayers and follow your instincts.
