Open

It’s so easy to get into a rut.  Life can get so mundane and routine and sometimes it takes some unforeseen circumstance to knock you down and make you realize all the things you have unknowingly taken for granted.  

For Emma Jameson it was the ending of a relationship.  She’s in her late twenties, feeling sad and lonely, and at a crossroads.  Isn’t life supposed to be better than this?  Where is she supposed to go from here?  Where is God in all of this?


Haven’t we all had times like these in our lives? Those moments when life doesn’t go the way you expected it to and you don’t know which way to go?  

After a note telling Emma to go through the next open door she decides to take a chance.  What does she have to lose?  She walks through a door and suddenly is in Biblical times walking with Jesus!  As a Christian, this is something I have always dreamed of.  To be able to ask Jesus whatever you want and to be able to see Him actually teaching the disciples, walking on water, and performing miracles.  To see His smile and hear His voice.  So amazing!  The author did a wonderful job of bringing the Bible to life.  
This book is such a treasure and so easy to read.  The author has a wonderful way of bringing you into the story and the entire book just flows.  It reminded me that there are things that I can do in my Christian walk but then there are things that I simply cannot do and it’s time I stopped trying and “instead, start abiding.”

I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for an honest review
