There never has been and never will be anyone like you. But that isn’t a testament to you. It’s a testament to the God who created you. The problem? Few people discover the God-given identity that makes them unlike anyone else. Mark Batterson calls this divine distinction our soulprint.
God would like to introduce you to yourself.
In Soulprint, Mark pours the contagious energy he’s known for into helping you experience the joy of discovering who you are and the freedom of discovering who you’re not. The wonderful fact is that your uniqueness is God’s gift to you—and it’s also your gift to God.
A “self-help” book that puts God at the center rather than self, Soulprint encourages you to recognize and explore the moments of your life that determine your future. Along the way, you’ll find that you’re not just turning the pages of a book. You’re turning the pages of your remarkable, God-shaped, world-changing life.
In his book SoulPrint: Discovering Your Divine Destiny, Pastor Mark utilizes key moments in the life of David to show the reader how to realize God’s true purpose for our lives. Past mistakes, hidden sins, and watershed moments are avenues that God utilizes to create the unique masterpiece that becomes one’s identity. By performing a self-assessment, it is possible to make the person looking back in the mirror the same person that God sees--this, Mark says, is where we find our destiny and His will for our lives.
SoulPrint was a challenging book primarily because it hit so close to home at such a critical time. I am excited about this “evolution of character” that God desires, although I know that it will require significant energy, dedication, and openness to take the steps required to fulfill the full potential of God’s destiny in my life. It is not simply a quest to redefine my image or obtain a new identity, but rather the natural result of “desperate people take desperate measures.” I strongly recommend this book for anyone seeking meaning and fulfillment in life--this can only come by seeking and finding God’s perfect will for your future
