The Garden is an allegorical tale as the author walks through the garden with God. She sees what He sees, asks questions and they work the garden together. “I want you to be one of My gardeners.”
God is very personable and caring. “I looked into His eyes, so tender, so filled with unfathomable love.” I could picture God in my mind’s eye. “He twinkled at me, a little curve in one corner of His mouth.” He is the alpha and the omega. He is all powerful and yet He also draws us close to Him. “‘What is it that you look for?’ ‘A heart willing to be loved.’ ”
K.A. Austin knows that we all have a tendency to go our own way. We think we know better than God but “He will save me, even from myself.” We need to let Him be the Lord of our lives. “When I AM the guide, it is something to look forward to.”
God lives in each and every one of us. “We have the life and breath of God in us.” He will never leave us. He treats each one of us individually, giving us just what we need. However we have free will and do not always respond to His calling.
The Garden is a perfectly beautiful book. I devoured it in just one sitting. I know it is also a book to be savoured.
I didn’t feel like I read The Garden – I felt like I walked through the garden with God. As I read the words, they seemed to come from the heart of God. I walked with God. I talked with God. I let God be the Lord of my life.
If you have any doubts that God loves you, read The Garden.
If you never doubt that God loves you, read The Garden.
The Garden has the power to change your relationship with God if you let it.
A breathtakingly beautiful book.
