It's a God Thing - Volume 2

Do you ever feel like God no longer performs miracles in this day and age?  If so, you may change your mind after reading a book like this one!  It's a God Thing is a compilation of 58 testimonies in which individuals share the miraculous ways that God has intervened in their lives.

Some stories you may be tempted to view as simply "coincidences".  A pair of glasses found on the highway.  Money coming in at just the right time.  A suicide bomb not detonating. Rainbows appearing in the sky over a special place.  Cool stories for sure...but not everyone may see these as miracles.

But wait...there's more.  This book is full of medical miracle stories that can be explained no other way.  When there are well-documented test results confirming medical diagnosis, and then suddenly it's GONE, what else can you do but praise God?  These stories strengthen my faith the most because it's hard to explain away something that is scientifically impossible.

This book is light reading, with short 2-5 page stories.  I liked to take a few minutes and read just a few stories at a time.  You could also read a story along with a devotional as a way to remind yourself of ways that God can and will move in our lives.  We just need to open our eyes to recognize Him.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
