Jesus’ journey to the woman at the well in Samaria offers insights and hope for women today to make peace with the past, find hope in the present, and step into the future.
God wants us to move toward the goodness He has planned for us. But what do we do when challenges stop our forward momentum? What’s the next step when we fall into a pit of despair with the determination knocked right out of us?
On his way from Judea to Galilee, Jesus traveled through Samaria, a broken place everyone knew to avoid. In Samaria he stopped in Shechem, where evil had gained such a foothold of power that it eventually reigned. Yet the place once condemned as somewhere no one wanted to visit—let alone hang out in for a while—was the location of one Samaritan woman’s most hope-filled encounter with the Savior.
The In-Between Place offers deeply important insights to anyone who feels stuck and can’t see a way forward. It is for the person who feels that if she looks left, her face will be scraped by an immovable us in tho, and if she looks right, she’ll see nothing but hard to handle. It’s for the person who feels lost and is not sure she is worth the effort to be found, for the person who feels overlooked and unfulfilled. Because sometimes Jesus saves our greatest spiritual breakthroughs for our in-between places.
“God has a plan, only he knows. Push through the mess. Eyes on Him”
This book was very encouraging, and I highly recommend it to anyone staring down confusion, uncertainty, and despair.
“Jesus is the one who can change our in-between places into hope-filled places. By his power, through his life, death, and resurrection, and for his glory; Jesus is the Redeemer.”
This book was a wonderful reminder of how we are called to join Jesus in his redemptive work until he comes to restore everything.
SOMETIMES JESUS SAVES OUR GREATEST SPIRITUAL BREAKTHROUGHS FOR OUR IN-BETWEEN PLACES
