Publisher's Summary

ECPA best seller

The lead singer, songwriter, and guitarist for award-winning contemporary Christian band Tenth Avenue North shows listeners that by seeking God first and focusing on serving him, we can live daily in his will.

"Perhaps God isn't giving me the plan because He wants to be the plan."

This was the aha moment for Mike Donehey after years of wrestling with his obsession to know God's specific plans for his life. He came to the realization that waiting for absolute certainty from God before making decisions may seem uberspiritual, but it can lead to a life of intense stress, paralyzing fear, and crushing regret - just the opposite of the freedom granted to those living a Christ-filled life.

"This is my story...how I gave up begging to know God's will and began to ask His life to come and change my will."

With his signature humor and relentless hunger for God, Mike will show you that discovering the Father's purpose and plan for our lives is not the shell game that we all too often make it out to be. If you're unsure what to do next, take heart and accept the ultimate invitation: Learn to see God as the plan, not simply the formula to the plan.

Critic Reviews

“Mike has been a friend of mine for years. He is equal parts fun, wise, and kind. He says what he believes, and he believes what he says. This book is full to the brim with words from a voice I trust, because Mike lives out the gospel message without pretense and with tremendous vulnerability.” (Bob Goff, author of New York Times best sellers Love Does and Everybody, Always)

“Who is waiting for you when the road rises up and smacks you in the face, when life sneaks up and hits you from behind and knocks you to your knees? Mike Donehey realized that it was from these positions he was in the best place to reach out for God’s hand and rise up. From accidents and intentions, decadence to ascension, his life and God’s will found a place called home.” (Ken Mansfield, author, producer, and former US manager of the Beatles’ Apple Records)
 

“Some books are fun to read while others just hit home, but my friend Mike Donehey has a way of doing both here. He is brilliant with words; his storytelling makes you laugh out loud; and yet - with all humility - in every chapter he blindsides you with truth that spins you right into freedom. When you have all of this written by someone with the highest values and character, you end up with a resource God uses in your life. This is a must-read.” (Chuck Bomar, pastor of Colossae Church and author of Better Off Without Jesus and Serving Local Schools)

Do I Want God, or Am I Using Him?

I so love this book! I had to stop several times and ask myself questions on my relationship with God, which led to a better relationship with God. Anything that encourages my growth toward God and facilitates a deeper love and understanding of Him, I will always tell people about. I forsee reading this book several times. It is really great. You feel like you are having a conversation with a caring friend over coffee. The way topics and concepts are presented gives grace to the listener while causing conviction, at the same time doing so with love and saving the dignity of the reader.

Entertainment & Clear Truth

Mike does an excellent job creating an informative & entertaining audiobook experience. He explains himself thoroughly and relates his experiences back to his points, surrounding it with scripture to back it up. This book is great for type A personality Christians who stress over doing the right thing & what God’s will for your life might be. Thank you Mike, it was an absolute pleasure.

A Captivating Look At How Christ Lives Through Us

There were many key insights and scripture which Mike gave pertaining to events that happened to him in his own life. Definitely a great book to read or listen to in order to deepen your relationship with Christ as he reveals his purpose moment by moment and we learn to trust him and remain steadfast in affliction.

Real. Reconciling. Reflective. Renewing. Radically-life-changing

My brother recommended this book to me in a list of about 7 others when I asked him what some of his favorite audiobooks were. I’m so glad I asked. I’m so glad my brother shared it and I’m so thankful that I listened. I’ll be encouraging my wife to listen to it now so that we can discuss how some of the content will be changing how I live my life. Thank you, Mike, for being real, reconciling, reflective, renewing, and radically-life-changing!

Helps define what is most important

lovely narration- you can almost see the thoughts forming. a really good listen.
Lots of good quotes- eg. God's word is a lamp unto our feet, not a floodlight for our interstate.
