Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: Divine Intentions by Doug K. Reed

Book: Divine Intentions

Author: Doug K. Reed
Genre: RELIGION / Christian Living/Personal Growth
Release Date: January 7, 2020

Divine Intentions takes readers on a journey of self-discovery through four key concepts: rescued, restored, relabeled, and redirected. Most people, even Christ-followers, are wounded at their core, with soul-level injuries that affect their identity. They may be hurting from past circumstances or feel trapped in their current ones. Basic discipleship sends believers on a journey…but it’s tough to take those steps while you’re hurting. Doug K. Reed offers healing for those who are searching for answers to their identities in Christ while struggling with wounds from the past or present. He shares his own personal story of restoration from pornography, pride, and other issues, helping to lead readers into the light of God’s love.

God has a plan for all of us, individualized plans. Many times Christians fall away from God for various reasons which may include: addictions, life struggles, hurt from others, etc. Even when we fall far away, we can be redirected back to God. God is here to rescue us if we seek him thoroughly. 

The author, Doug K. Reed, does a GREAT job at showing the reader how to come back to God and allow him to lead us to the life that he has intended us to lead.  The book takes us through four key concepts: rescued, restored, relabeled, and redirected. Each chapter touches on a different topic and each chapter had "Discovery Questions" at the end of each chapter. The questions are very thought provoking and really makes you look deep inside for answers. 

Divine Intentions is for anyone who needs some encouragement in their Christian Walk, especially for those who need help coming back to God and following God's plan for their life. I was very encouraged by the book and plan on reading it again in the near future! GREAT BOOK!

More from Doug

Woodworking has been a hobby of mine since childhood. When my wife, Jeanne, and I were engaged, I created a wooden jewelry box for her that she still treasures and uses to this day, thirty years later. Every time she uses it, she’s reminded of how much I love her.
That jewelry box was designed with a specific purpose in mind. If, God forbid, I ever got mad at her, removed her jewelry, and put my fishing lures in there, the gift that once brought joy would now cause pain. And that jewelry box would make a lousy tackle box because it was not designed for that purpose. My creation would fail to fulfill my original intention.
In a similar way, we have been lovingly designed by God for a specific purpose. We can fill our life with lesser things, but He lovingly designed us to hold the treasure of destiny. He created us with the capacity to fulfill all He has planned for us.
Far too many books are written to advanced leaders without considering where the majority of people find themselves.  The goal of the book is to meet people where they are.  The book dives into their pain and to honestly and authentically address it.  My own story is the constant backdrop in the book which adds greatly to its relatability.  The combination of storytelling and deep content make this book unique.
