We are part of a larger picture that God himself will bring to completion. The details of that larger picture remain largely obscured from our view, and yet the promise of that picture inspires to move forward.

Getting lost in the mundane tasks of daily life can make people lose sight of the big picture. Every situation, or “dot,” in life serves a bigger purpose. When we are too close, those dots may not make sense. It isn’t until we gain perspective that we can see full picture.
In Bishop Jake Owensby’s latest work Connecting the Dots: A Hope-Inspired Life (published by WestBow), he helps readers to understand the concept of hope and draw upon that hope as the force that inspires daily lives. God’s love connects the dots in life. The desire for mankind to fully comprehend God’s love for them is what drove Owensby to write the book.
“Optimism in all its forms places its bets on what we humans can accomplish. By contrast, hope is rooted in what Christ has already achieved on the Cross and what God promises to accomplish for us in the future. God connects the dots of our lives,” says Owensby. “We are part of a larger picture that God himself will bring to completion. The details of that larger picture remain largely obscured from our view, and yet the promise of that picture inspires to move forward.”
Connecting the Dots articulates faith in contemporary terms without compromising the traditional core of the Christian faith. Owensby’s book reminds the reader that doubt, hurt and fear don’t go away when they believe in God, but faith in God’s work can inspire them to live life fully, and with confidence in God’s will.
“Our lives matter on an infinite and eternal scale. We were not just thrown into the universe. God sent each of us here to be an important part of his life-giving, healing mission. Relying upon God is the key to true happiness starting today,” says Owensby.
