Gott Will Provide
The Christmas Admirer by Laura V Hilton is the most delightful Amish romance. There is a wonderful warm atmosphere that envelopes the reader. With snow falling and delicious food cooking, the reader can really ‘feel’ at home.
The novel is about trusting God. At times life seems hard but we need to lift our eyes from our circumstances and look to God. “Determined to praise Gott in the midst of circumstances rather than focus on the negative.” We have a choice to choose to trust God.
Trusting God means we do not need to worry. “Worry ends where faith in Gott begins.” Whatever happens, God has got our back.
People have doubts. Doubt is not the opposite of faith. Doubt can actually help our faith to grow as we question and choose to trust God. Doubt can “stretch his [our] faith.”
Feel Good Tales
Springs Of Love is a collection of three delightful tales that will warm the reader’s heart and make them feel good.
The Kissing Bridge by Laura V Hilton is a delightful start to this Amish trio. With themes of faith, trust and God’s plans, the reader is in for a real treat. “We are not saved by joining the Amish church… we’re saved by faith.” Buildings don’t save people, only God does that. Seeking Him first and listening for His voice are the best way to live life. There is the difficult topic of violence due to anger issues. The tale is covered by love – both human and divine. A wonderful read.
Time To Heal
Amish Wanderer by Laura V Hilton is a contemporary Amish romance and I really enjoyed it.
The novel has God at the centre. God loves each and every one of us with an everlasting love but there are times when we cannot see Him. “Silence. Gott where are you? Nothing.” God’s silence never equates with His absence. God longs to have a relationship with us all. Sometimes we wrongly disqualify ourselves. “Gott didn’t listen to her. Didn’t hear her. Didn’t care.” We think we have to be ‘good enough’ and we forget about grace but “Gott has never left you.” God does care and God does see and God does hear.
The story shows how relationships are built between us and God and each other. Relationships may be complicated but God just wants us to have faith and trust Him.
