Bestselling author, speaker, and activist Christine Caine helps readers who are feeling weary and like things somehow aren’t quite right to identify how they ended up where they are and what they need to do to course-correct and anchor themselves in the only One who does not change or shift with the currents.

We’ve all at some point looked up from the daily grind and realized we had somehow drifted off course. Maybe we’ve been doing all the right Christian things and saying all the right Christian words, but inside we know something is just a bit off. Like we’ve run out of energy, vision, passion, and feel unable to move forward. The question we’re pondering is not only How did I gethere? but also What do I do now?

In this new book, Caine meets us all in that place of weariness and uncertainty, sharing her own journey of discovery with vulnerability, candor, and self-deprecating humor. She lays out what she has learned about staying the course when you’re feeling untethered and guides us each to

  • learn the questions to ask about our relationships with God, with others, and with our own hearts to stay continually anchored despite the world’s shifting currents;
  • discover how to trust God more deeply by moving from a “what if?” kind of faith to an “even if” kind of faith;
  • identify nine signs we are drifting off course and learn how to reposition ourselves to getback on track; and
  • wrestle honestly with life’s hard questions so we can respond faithfully to all the ways God answers, including the times when it feels like he doesn’t.

Christine offers up deeply personal stories, scriptural insights, and an eye-opening admonition to start paying closer attention, helping us to stop drifting and start thriving as we place our anchor on our unchanging, trustworthy God.

My Thoughts

It’s so easy to drift. All you have to do is nothing. Just as ocean currents can carry us to places we never intended to go, if we don’t press on for more of Jesus, then the currents of our time will take us wherever they are headed.

In her new book, Christine Caine vividly explains how easily we all can drift off course. She breaks down the causes, and opens our broken, shattered, and hardened hearts by leading us to our anchor … Jesus, our hope and firm foundation!

This book left me in tears, and I’ve realized that I’ve been drifting. I’d been praying about this very thing, and was truly blessed by the answers in this book. I’ve often felt like I can’t go on, and I’ve found myself asking Jesus why I’m here, what good am I, and I’ve even asked Him to end my race because it’s too hard. I’ve worked through most of these issues, but still find myself crying and feeling like I’m lonely and lost, even though I may be doing all the “right things”.

This book is a great reminder of God’s unwavering grace and faithfulness, and how He’s always waiting to get us back on track and draw us close to Him.

It was encouraging to read this book and check my markers, check the links in my chain, and make sure my anchor is set – so I can stay on course and bring God the glory. I highly recommend this book, as I couldn’t put it down. I really enjoyed the chapter on healing, as this is something I need to work on with Jesus.

This book will leave you pumped up, and ready to run your race! It’s also available on audiobook, which I also bought and enjoyed. 🙂

“Therefore, my beloved brothers and sisters, be firm, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”
