Lines like "No one has ever seen me before. God sent you to see me." speak to God in action despite who we are or where we are or the circumstances of our life. Living on a flooding Amazon river and God sent Kelly to see a boy who needed to be seen. A boy who needed to know that the creator God knew he existed and that it mattered.
Stories like that just fill me with amazement at how God works.
We plan our lives.
We know what we want to do.
And behind it all is God at work.
This just reinforces to me that my life has NOTHING to do with me...it has EVERYTHING to do with God.
This book shows God in action as Minter is transformed through her journey and work in the Amazon.
This is a book about a call to change, a call to action, a call to let God lead us on and to remember that it's about him. Not about how we change or act... though that does matter, it's a call to see God in action and to want to be part of that action in the way God would have us be. :)
