Love’s Belief by Linda Shenton Matchett

One By One

Love’s Belief by Linda Shenton Matchett is a Christian historical novel set in Germany in 1943. It is the third book in the Wartime Brides series but can be read as a stand-alone.

This is a powerful book about having the courage and faith to stand up against the forces of evil. We have to trust God’s plans for our lives in the midst of this evil. “I have seen the worst man has to offer.” We must trust that God will deliver us but even if He does not, we will trust Him anyway.

Nazi Germany was a dangerous place to be. Walls had ears.

sherwoodLove Found In Sherwood Forest by Linda Shenton Matchett is a contemporary Christian romance with God at the centre.

God should be the focus of our lives. The novel explores what happens when you hand the driving seat of your life over to God. “It’s all about Him, not me.” God’s plans are so much greater than our own. When we try to rush Him or put ourselves above Him, life can be puzzling and a struggle. “We need to trust Him and take one day at a time.” God gives us just enough light for the step we are on. We do not need to worry about tomorrow. God’s got tomorrow covered. Do we trust Him?

It is important to pray about everything. Prayer is communicating with God. We need to pray until we get the peace that only God can give.
