”The best or the worst stories, the ones that touch us the most, aren’t about fictional people who never make mistakes or fail. What really captivates us is reality.”
Reality is fascinating, and the true story of humankind can’t be found in an idealized world of perfect people, but right in the middle of everyday life – where you are right now.
I have been working with people my whole life, and I was only 18 years old when I became a teacher and became a part of the everyday lives of my students. Over the years I have met with business leaders, Christian churches, and the indigenous people of Africa. I’ve spent time with incredibly successful people, while some of my closest friends have grown up in the backyard of life.
We all have one thing in common – we are all ”ordinary people” and God is an expert at ordinary people, because God is right in the middle of real life.
This book was written for you. It is about what life is doing and about not giving up. Nobody can avoid life. It laughs, cries, rests, fights, lets us down, grieves, restores and wins – that is what life is. Right there in your life, in your reality, no matter how you are feeling right now, God is there.
