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.”
Pray And Trust God
Wait For Me by Jan Thompson is a contemporary
Christian romantic suspense. It is the third book in the Vacation Sweethearts
series but can be read as a stand-alone.
Jan Thompson has created a cracking story that
entertains the reader. She reveals the heart of God to love us and to be in
control of all our situations. “Did
we forget that God is ultimately in control of our lives?” When our world is in
turmoil we need to remember that nothing surprises God. He knows our ending
from our beginning.
Prayer is important. It should be as natural as
breathing. “Praying was an automatic thing.” We need to make prayer our default
setting and not our last resort.
God is the God of second chances. Whatever we
threw away in the past can be resurrected under the loving care of God.
Listen To His Heart
Call You Home by Jan Thompson is a most delightful
Christian contemporary novel that will leave you feeling good. The novel
reveals the heart of God as characters learn from the lessons of the past and put
their trust in Him. “Look at the past with fond memories but you have to live
in the here and now.”
We all have dreams but as a child of God we
need to put our dreams into His hands and follow His direction. We need to be
prepared to say not my will be done but Yours and hand the driving seat of our
lives over to Him.
Being a Christian does not mean we will not
experience difficult times. In our hard times we can have peace because we know
God. “In the middle of her chaos, God sent calm.”
Wish You Joy by Jan Thompson is a delightful
Christian romance set around the theme of Christmas but is perfect for any time
of year. It is the ninth book in the Savannah Sweethearts series but can be
read as a stand-alone.
We should carry Christmas in our hearts all
year round because the focus of Christmas should be Jesus. He should be at the
centre of our lives. Christmas has become far too commercialised. “Let’s claim
it [Christmas] back for Christ.”
Life may be tough but some burdens were never
ours to carry. We need to surrender them to God. “I carry the burden no more…
He [God] is able.” God’s shoulders are big enough to carry whatever we give
