So, the truth of the matter is I just didn't want to read this book when I was first asked. It's a crazy time of the year AND we are planning a wedding for New Year's Eve and I just didn't think I had time. I mean, I WANT to love people like GOD does, really I do, and I have to admit that the title was kind of intriguing, but I just didn't have time. And I wasn't sure that I could find the time OR make the time. So I waited and waited and thought I just would say no.
Then, I was asked again and it seemed GOD wasn't going to let me walk away from it. Oh, boy, does HE always know just what I need, or what? When the book arrived, I sat down for a quick skimming and thought I'd just look over it quickly and then put it down and pick it back up later. An HOUR later, I was still reading and I absolutely COULD NOT put it down. Seriously, it's just that good. It bends me and stretches me and makes me laugh and makes me cry -- sometimes all in the same sentence. What I like is that author Max Davis is real and points out that JESUS doesn't always look like our Sunday School version of HIM did. HE loves us just like we are and HE beckons us to HIS side. Max is real and shares how GOD works through even the messy and messed up lives that we lead. Max shares his journey -- and reminds us that we all have a crazy, out-of-the ordinary, not-so-easy journey of our own -- and that's okay. GOD is there . . . loving us . . . every single step of the way.
Another thing I like? Max Davis lives close enough to me that we could be neighbors. How neat is that?
Please, please, please do yourself and your heart a favor and read When JESUS Was a Green-Eyed Brunette. It's a heart-changer. See HIM for who HE really is. JESUS with skin on -- every day of every week of every month of every year of our life.
