LAKE MARY, Fla. (WordNews.org) Jan. 19, 2018 – Author Mia K. Wright says there’s a pattern in the Bible that is unmistakable: People who do things out of the ordinary experienced the extraordinary.
In her book “Unthinkable,” due out March 6, Wright challenges readers to push past the limitations placed on them by society, culture – and – themselves to reach their next level with God.
Wright was raised in a single-parent home located on what she described was on the wrong side of town. She never thought she would beat the odds.
“God did the unthinkable… when I decided not to settle for life as I had known it. I wanted more out of life than I had seen growing up, and as I placed my desire before God, He showed me how to break out of poverty and a self-limiting mindset,” Wright said. “He began to open my eyes to what He had in store for me, and His plans were beyond what I would have dreamed.”
Joni Lamb, host of Joni Table Talk on Daystar Television Network, said “Unthinkable” is a challenging read.
“Mia Wright challenges us to understand that although we may view ourselves as ordinary, God’s view is quite different,” Lamb said. “She encourages us to do the unthinkable and walk outside the boundaries of ordinary and join hands with our Creator to do the extraordinary.”
Wright takes inspiration from the godly examples of individuals in the Bible, among them Abigail, and Rahab, who took bold steps of faith and at times defied cultural norms. Mary should have been in the kitchen with Martha, but she sat at the feet of Jesus. When Naomi commanded her daughters-in-law to go back home, Ruth vowed to stay with her, which resulted in her playing a central role in God’s plan to bring Jesus into the world.
“I believe that embedded in the spirit and psyche of every individual is the desire to break out, to improve and be better,” Wright said. “The problem is many of us don’t know where we need to be or how to get there. To experience the change you seek, you may just have to do the unthinkable.”
Wright is host of the popular Metamorphosis women’s conference and director of the ministry The Fountain of Praise in Houston, Texas.
