Ordering Your Private Life by Gordon MacDonald was published on September 5th, 2017 by Thomas Nelson Publishing, LLC. Has anyone seen my time? I’ve misplaced it. We have schedule planners, computerized calendars, smart phones, and sticky notes to help us organize our business and social lives every day. But what about organizing the other side of our lives―the spiritual side?
One of the great battlegrounds is within the private world of the individual. The values of our Western culture would have us believe the busy, publicly active person in ministry is also the most spiritual. Tempted to give imbalanced attention to the public world at the expense of the private, we become involved in more programs, more meetings. Our massive responsibilities at home, work, and church have resulted in many good people on the verge of collapse. In this updated classic Ordering Your Private World, Gordon MacDonald equips a new generation to live life from the inside out, cultivating the inner victory necessary for public effectiveness.

My thoughts: Ordering Your Private World is a book for anyone who feels like that are stuck in place and not satisfied with where they are in their life. In this self-help, Bible study you will find encouraging words and scripture for those who feel lost with no hope. MacDonald has written a book that is rich in scripture and deep in personal experience in order to help strengthen the readers relationship with God. A perfect addition to your library or a great gift for anyone who feels lost and needs to deepen their relationship with God. ** I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
