I wasn't sure what to expect when I chose to review the book inSignificant: Why You Matter in the Surprising Way God is Changing the World by Chris Travis. What caught my eye in the description on the back of the book was actually the first two sentences--"If you're looking for a life of meaning, take hope. God wants to use you in his surprising plan to change the world."
Being a Christian myself, I have always known that God wants to use me in his plan, but after reading this book, I gained more insight into how God can (and does) use us to change the world when we feel like what we are doing is insignificant. Chris Travis includes his own personal stories about teaching for two years in one of the most dangerous public schools in New York.
Travis talks about how he began to use the Lord's Prayer as a guideline for praying and that once he began to focus his prayers on God and on others he saw some real power moving through him (pg.93) He also tells us he began to pray less often for what he wanted and more often that God would give him what he needed to accomplish His will and to serve others well.
There is so much more that this book has to offer. If you are looking for inspiration, this is definitely a book that you should read!
