The Miracle in the Middle - Book Review

The middle. It's not just a really good Jimmy Eat World song. It's a place that most of us find ourselves in from time to time. Sometimes we just get stuck, like wading through Jell-O, and it's difficult to see how close you are to the end.

If you're there right now and seeking support, then you might want to read The Miracle in the Middle by Charlotte Gambill.

This book doesn't have the ultimate answer of just HOW you get out of the middle, but it does offer advice for making the middle a little easier. Using personal experiences and Biblical stories, Gambill offers guidance and prayers to keep you focused on God, the only thing that can really get you through.

Something that really struck me was how sometimes in our middle we tend to look back on the past, as though the past was so good. But if it was so good, why did we move forward and away from it? Just keep moving forward!
