Jesus Christ will allow things, people and circumstances in our lives that really show us that we need a deeper relationship with him in order to truly say I know him, I’ve tasted and I know that the Lord is REAL. Jemma’s portrayal of her journey to arrive at this stage keeps it authentically tangible and the reader is able to relate to the challenge of the Christian walk. We grasp a real sense of the roller coaster of emotions, brokenness, escape, emotional hurt, physical pain, forgiveness, elation, joy and hope she experiences. God manages disobedience but still loves cares protects and provides for her. Jemma journals an honest account of her transition of doubt AND belief to a position of doubt TO belief in Jesus Christ’s personal love and grace. She vividly describes God’s love and grace chipping, chiselling away and moulding ”old matter and material into a beautiful ornate vase.’ It is a gripping moment for the reader to discover this is how God has been processing her and how He perceives His treasured daughter. The book is entitled God’s Romantic Getaway which superficially suggests a break or time out of the hustle and bustle of life. But in actual fact, we read of a young lady ‘Getting Together’ with Jesus and her journey to get to know and love Christ intimately. Once read you too will examine your own journey and relationship with Christ or wonder why you have not yet asked to go on that romantic getaway with Him.
