Delightful And Amusing
Find You Again by Jan Thompson is a delightful Christian romance. It is the eighth book in the Savannah Sweethearts series but can be read as a stand-alone.
We all have a past. If we do not deal with past issues, they may become present difficulties. The novel shows that if we try to conceal past sins, the burden will drag us down. As Christians we need to live in the light. Old secrets must be dealt with or we will build a wedge between us and others, and us and God. “The hidden sin that had pulled him away from God was no more.” Confession is good for the soul and it is freeing.
There is the theme of fathers. Sometimes our earthly fathers are absent. Our heavenly Father never leaves us and he can be trusted.
When life deals us blows, it is good to be able to know where to turn for support. The church was God’s great idea for planet earth. It is a place where we can go to build each other up and to support each other. We need to remember “God is still good, no matter what happens.”
We are told by Jesus to go into all the world and make disciples. How do we do this? By showing Jesus to the world through our actions. We need to love people into the kingdom and let God do the convicting. It is never our job to judge but to love.
The characters are warm and welcoming. There are some highly amusing moments caused by an elderly aunt with a love for honking horns as she travels in her wheelchair. Age is no respecter of private lives as meddling and match making come easily to the elderly!
Find You Again was a delightful read that will leave you smiling. I want to leave you with a powerful quote:
“The Christian life is not meant to be convenient, but cleansing.”
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
