Book Review: My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade
Upon her arrival in Redbud, Kate meets Matt Jarreau, the man hired to renovate the house. Kate can't help being attracted to him, drawn by both his good looks and something else she can't quite put her finger on. He's clearly wounded--hiding from people, from God, and from his past. Yet Kate sets her stubborn heart on bringing him out of the dark and back into the light...whether he likes it or not.
When the stilted, uncomfortable interactions between Kate and Matt slowly shift into something more, is God finally answering the longing of her heart? Or will Kate be required to give up more than she ever dreamed?
My Thoughts: I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I was entertained from start to finish. I was enthralled by all the characters, and it didn't hurt that Matt was an ex-NHL player as we are huge NHL fans in this house!
One of the hardest things in our walk with God is finding that line between waiting for the next step to revealed in faith, vs barging ahead assuming we know what God wants for us or on the other extreme, doing nothing without a hand writing on the wall what our next step is. This book explored that in a very realistic way. We also see that sometimes a choice can be wrong only because it's the wrong timing. But God's timing is always perfect and trusting in that timing is a difficult choice, but something every Christian must do if they want to live their life to the fullest that God has planned for them.
Fantastic book, I highly recommend it!
