Welcome to madefordominion.com.
I’m David Bostrom… and I’m glad you’re here!
The purpose of this blog is simple:
It’s to encourage you and help you live out your God-given purpose… every day of your life.
For over 20 years I served as a local church pastor. And during that time I came upon a common problem…
I found there are a lot of good people — people who are Christians — who struggle to find a connection between how they spend their time each day and the purpose God has for their lives.
This struggle is significant…
It often leads folks to become discontent with the place God has them… and miss out on the good work He has prepared for them to do.
But there’s good news…
God has a purpose for you, and He’s commissioned you to develop what’s been entrusted to your care.
And though you may think you’ve been missing out on that purpose so far, there’s no need to despair.
He is able to take you where you are right now and have you fulfill His purpose in the place He has you – no matter how small that place may be!
The foundation of this purpose goes back to the first chapter of the Bible… in what’s known as the Dominion Mandate:
And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth” (Genesis 1:28).
I’ve laid out the details of what all this involves in my book Get Dominion.
And over the past five years I’ve been helping people implement their personal callings with my writing and consulting services.
If you believe you could be doing more to use your gifts and transform the world around you, you’re in the right place. You’ll find help here.
To receive encouragement regarding your own calling, be sure and sign up for my daily emails. They’re short, conversational, and to the point.
Just provide your email address in the box at the bottom of this page and my posts will arrive directly in your six days a week (five during the summer).
I’ve committed to publish these messages because I believe the great need of our day is for people like you and me to faithfully fulfill the unique callings God gives us.
And my calling is to encourage you to follow yours.
I do my work from my home base in Central Florida, where I live with my wife and three of our six sons.
When I’m not writing, there’s a good possibility I’m trying to teach myself the piano.
