Safe In The Father’s Arms
Look For Me by Jan Thompson is a contemporary Christian suspense that will consume from the start. It is the fourth book in the Vacation Sweethearts series but can be read as a stand-alone.
As always, the reader receives a warm welcome as the characters are well drawn and delightful. There are wholesome godly men and women who turn to God at all times. “Life was still hard but now she had hope in Christ.” Without Jesus, life makes no sense at times. With Jesus, we can receive a peace that passes understanding in spite of our circumstances.
Characters have lives that are falling apart but “Jesus Christ was her rescuer.” Jesus rescues us not only from our circumstances but also from ourselves. Once we know Jesus, our hearts desire is to introduce Him to others. There is a dying world that needs to know Jesus.
Prayer is important. Sometimes life falls apart and “all we can do now is pray.” There are times when we have no words but Jesus knows our heart. “God would hear the prayers of his heart even when he couldn’t form the words.”
Names are part of our identity. A name change may signify a change in circumstances. The reader is reminded that when we come to Jesus, He gives us a new name. He calls us beloved.
Children are a gift from God. No matter what the circumstances of our conception, each child is loved and planned for by God. We are urged to take care of the widows and orphans. When we know God, we are adopted into His family. There are no orphans in the Kingdom.
I thoroughly enjoyed Look For Me. It was not only an exciting suspense but it revealed the heart of God.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
