This book right here.

Bianca Juarez Olthoff

I am not usually at a loss for words...
{zip it, now. you know who I'm talking to}

but, seriously THIS BOOK.

It has become apparent to me that God sure had a plan when I was chosen for this book launch team. Nothing could have been more appropriately timed... Coincidental? No. I know better than that. I know that His timing is perfect. He knows what I need waaayyyyyy more than I do. He knows... Period.

I have read and highlighted... scribbled scripture references... written quotes... re-read and underlined... re-read and re-read... more underlining with asterisks. All in preparation for this part. I had all kinds of things to share. I had all kinds of quotes prepared. I had all of it. BUT... then, it's not my place. It's not my story. Not mine to tell. And, I cannot do it justice.

However, what I will tell you is that in our seasons (and we all will have them), when it feels least like it, God is there. I needed that reminder. I needed to know it wasn't just me. I needed scriptures to stand on. Sometimes it feels like He is far away... He is closer than the air. Sometimes it feels like He is not listening, not even noticing. Oh, but sweet soul, He sees... every detail, every tear. He has made provision, regardless of the situation. He has given us community, if we allow ourselves to be open. And He will use us. We just must be willing to allow Him.

You should quit reading and just get the book. Right now. Go on, I'll wait.

{insert elevator music... I'll spare you my serenading, and for that you are certainly welcome.}

Now, go find your pen and your highlighter. Oh, and grab a notebook. You're gonna need them.
