One of my absolute favorite things about Christian life is watching God work in the world. I love those times when you notice or experience something that you just know that the Holy Spirit had a hand in. So when I came across the book It’s A God Thing: When Miracles Happen to Everyday People, I knew instantly that I wanted to read and review it.
This is not a book that I would normally choose to read. Lately, I’ve been leaning more toward books that will challenge me spiritually or teach me new things about my faith, but after reading the stories in this book, I’ve become more inspired.
It’s A God Thing: When Miracles Happen to Everyday People is a compilation of personal experiences of God’s work in the lives of the contributors. It is an easy read, with each story only a few pages long, making it a good choice for moms who can only spare a few minutes here or there to dip into a book.
While many of the stories were intriguing, and had me hoping for good outcomes, such as in the story of the couple who needed God’s help in order to adopt their foster children, a few of them were a little disappointing. I also found that a few of the stories concluded too abruptly, leaving me to wonder what really happened in the end, such as in the case of the woman whose baby appeared to have broken his neck in utero, but was born alive.
If you are in need of a little boost to your faith or just want to hear how other people have experienced the presence of the Holy Spirit, reading It’s A God Thing: When Miracles Happen to Everyday People might just be the thing for you.
