The only way to break out of a life going in circles, is to know who you truly are and what God's really like. Forget glib and meaningless punch lines like "God's in control" or "He has a plan for my life". It's time to ask some serious questions about our calling and it's time to get off the couch. We do not have a problem with faith, or hearing God's voice. Our problem is that our fear and laziness have tweaked our view of God and created a weird Christian subculture where God tells people who to marry, where to work, and how to tie their shoes. The results of this subculture is twofold: we have developed a low grade psychosis where we think we're hearing things from God and we've also got stuck on a path that doesn't look anything like our true selves or God's priorities.
