Seeing the Big Picture

Once you’ve seen, you can’t unsee.
Brielle went to the city to chase her dreams and found tragedy instead. She’s come home to shabby little Stratus, Oregon, to live with her grief and her guilt . . . and an incredible, numbing cold she can’t seem to shake.
Jake’s the new guy at school. The boy next door with burning hands and an unbelievable gift that targets him for corruption.
Something more than fate has brought them together. An evil bigger than both of them lurks in the shadows nearby, hiding in plain sight. Two angels stand guard, unsure what’s going to happen. And a beauty brighter than either Brielle or Jake has ever seen is calling them to join the battle in a realm where all human choices begin.

Oftentimes, there are things to make you fall. There are more setbacks than achievements. We often cry out to God to take these things away from us and remove us from these situations. Most of the time, He doesn't. We are confused. Why not?

Now, when we look back through those troubled times, we can see the big picture. Through those times, God was building our character so that the troubles that we face now can be easily passed through. This book reminded me that God sees all and the present troubles are just a piece of a big picture.

I got this free book from: booksneeze.
