Regardless of us by Jennifer Rodewald
Messes in masterpieces
Despite ourselves by Jennifer Rodewald is a delightful Christian contemporary novel about the power of love. It is part of the Potter & # 39; s House series and the second book in the Murphy Brothers series, but can be read as a separate book.
The central theme is love – learning how to love God, learning to give and receiving love. A life without love is only a half-life. Not everyone who loves has a motive behind their love. The novel shows how we are loved unconditionally as we are.
Sometimes we have to break out of the teachings of our upbringing. Our childhood shapes the adult we become, but sometimes we have learned the wrong lessons. A character was taught to be independent, that love is not needed, to be strong means to live emotionally isolated. That is wrong thinking. We need others. We need love and we need God.
The Murphy family welcomes you. Love radiates outwards from the parents. There is contagious good-natured teasing.
Life leaves its scars. Some are visible, others are hidden. Our scars show the battles we have overcome.
Our life may seem messy and messy, but God is doing his best as he turns our mess into masterpieces.
I love Jennifer Rodewald's novels. They are warm and essentially welcome God. Despite us, there is gentle reading about how we can overcome our fears and let God in. I loved it.
I will leave you with my favorite quote:
"I'm not going to church to celebrate my goodness. I'm going to worship His."
I got this book for free. A positive rating was not required and all views expressed are my own.
