Robin Jones Gunn, author of some of my favorite books (think Sisterchicks), has written a book of encouragement that will touch your heart in deep places. Robin lets us into her heart as she shares some very personal, heart-breaking events matched with some awe-inspiring works of God that proves that He does, in fact, have a plan for our lives and every little thing matters. How awesome it was that Robin shared her experience and revelation with us. There is hope for us after all. God doesn’t leave us alone.
I had expectations for this book. First, I thought this isn’t going to be that great. Why do I want to read this? But I am so glad I read it. I feel like shouting “He loves me. God really loves me.” Thank you, Robin, for writing this book. By sharing your heart and how God worked in your life, I have hope for mine.
Okay, now that I’ve gotten the praise out of the way, let me explain why I feel this way. Mixed in with Robin’s testimony, she shares how God has worked in the lives of women in the Bible who were victims of grace—Hannah, Eve, Hagar, Rebekah, Mary Magdalene, Mary… Woven throughout “Victim of Grace” is a story of God’s goodness in the midst of trials, disappointments and pain. We are all victims of God’s grace. He pushes us from a place of feeling rejected to a place where we are able to receive His abundant grace and our heart is set free to overwhelming possibilities only God could orchestrate (if only we’ll let Him).
