The message is simple but powerful: Turn your view of fulfillment and contentment upside down and discover the deeper joy god is already offering you -- now.
How easily we fall into the common misconception that we must always be striving to reach that elusive "next level" in life. What we long for -- in our circumstances, our relationships, or even spirituality -- seems always just beyond our reach. B. Courtney McBath reveals that living in true friendship with God is that Next Level. As God's friends, we're already there, and every moment we spend straining after so-called benchmarks of success is a missed opportunity to explore God more deeply and connect with Him more fully right now. McBath writes in the bestselling tradition of T.D. Jakes and John Maxwell, bridging ethnic and theological boundaries with his transformative message.
Readers will find their lives radically changed by Living @ the Next Level as they discover how to live at rather than strive for the Next Level. With McBath's dynamic teaching and spiritual wisdom, learn how to release the frustration that comes when our expectations go unfulfilled and, instead, learn to experience the fulfillment of walking with God in friendship every day. Rather than being consumed with frustration, we can get caught up in the joy of the journey.
McBath uses vivid and powerful scripture and stories to inspire and show we don't have to live in frustration. Yes, we will experience highs and lows, mountains and valleys, blessings and battles, but whether we are waiting in faith for change or walking in a season of fulfilled purpose, as we journey in friendship with God, we will discover we already have far more than we've ever dreamed.
