Ephesians 4:32 “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”
I have always enjoyed Amish Christian Romance. I love learning about their way of life and the overall message of the books I have read. I was not disappointed when I completed Grace's Forgiveness by Molly Jebber.
Grace was a young Amish woman who lived up to her name. She had every reason to be angry or upset with God. She did not allow her disfigurement define her. She was pure in heart. She was graceful and obedient to God. She wanted to do the right thing. She helped everyone in her community and was loved by all. She wanted to follow Amish rules but had a difficult time in shunning her good friend.
Mark King had a secret. His brother left the Amish community. He lost both parents and then lost his only brother. He prayed for his brother to return to the fold. Could he turn his brother away if he came to Mark for help?
Mark and Grace meet and they quickly realize that they were a good match. He looked beyond her birthmark. He loved Grace and could see how much she loved God.
Grace and Mark both felt the pain of losing someone they loved through death or by leaving the Amish community. They both wanted the same things: a family, a life together and to be accepted for whom they were.
They both had secrets. They were blessed that they could share their inner thoughts to each other without being judged.
Their love story was one where they learned to trust and lean on each other through the difficult times. They had faith in God and that he would guide them and keep them strong.
Forgiveness is not always easy. But to forgive others when they have made a mistake or hurt you in some way is a gift. We gain so much when we forgive others. Mark, Grace, Grace's father and Mark's brother all learned that when they forgive or are forgiven that they have gained so much.
This book was a delight to read. I received it free to review. I highly recommend this book to others especially to someone that is having a difficult time knowing how to forgive.
