God Moments in Time, by Thomas E. Brewer

God Moments In TimeOften, there are moments of opportunity in our lives, when spectacular things can happen.  At the time, we think they are every day occurrences, but in retrospect, we realize they are God moment in time, those instants when God opens a door for us.  This book explores the biblical foundation for God moments, and teaches us how to be better open to the moment of God in these special instances in life.

The introduction says that this book is not full of fancy words, just honest discussion in simple terms of how God opens doors in our life.  I think that is why I loved it so much.   This book is so full of hope!  Even the imagery used is hopeful!  The reoccurring theme of doors and hinges is used, which to me makes it feel so open, and like it is about life moving forward.  Thomas Brewer uses a lot of real life examples to back up the biblical teaching in this book to make it so relatable.  I just loved the book and could not put it down.

The book is short, I think I read it in under 2 hours, and it does use really simple language.  I think this would be a great book for teens and high school graduates, to help them begin the discernment process for where God was leading them in life, but, clearly, it is also applicable for adults.  The message of the book really resonates, and stays with you.
