A Matter Of Trust by Susan May Warren is a delightful contemporary Christian romantic adventure which I loved. It is the third book in the Montana Rescue series but can be read as a stand-alone. I really enjoyed catching up with familiar faces and meeting new ones.
PEAK rescue team has the mantra of sticking together and leaving no one behind. They rescue people because it is their job. They do not stop to think if they deserve it. “No one in trouble should be worried as to whether they deserve help.” Likewise God rescues us, not because we deserve it but because it is in His nature and because of grace that covers us all.
This links to the theme of trust. We can trust God and we need to trust others. We cannot go through life in grand isolation. “You have a history with God… once upon a time you trusted Him.” We can trust God in all situations and at all times especially when life is tough. Life may have disappointed us but God never will. “God… I want to believe you are on my side.” God is on our side. The question is, are we on His?
The past is gone. We cannot live in it, “tearing open the wounds of regret.” We must learn from the past and move on.
There are the themes of guilt and forgiveness. We cannot live a life feeling guilty. It is a tactic of the enemy to divert us from focusing on God. “You wear your mistakes like a brand on your forehead.” Our mistakes are gone. We must learn to forgive ourselves because God has already forgiven us.
God is the God of restoration. He can make all things new.
The novel is about teamwork. Teamwork gets things done. Everyone has a job to do and plays their part. We need to partner with God and join His team and get things done for Him.
There was a beautiful love beginning to bud and blossom throughout the novel which was wonderful to witness.
I am loving this Montana Rescue series. A Matter Of Trust was fabulous. It’s on to book four now for me. Give yourself a treat and buy the Montana Rescue series now. You will be glad you did.
