What does it feel like when God breaks in...

...when He interrupts the logical flow of cause and effect or moves in quietly to answer your prayers? Though you may not see Him with your eyes, you can experience His peace, joy, and comfort as you read this beautiful collection of stories from people just like you — people whose dreams have been fulfilled, relationships restored, safety protected, and debts paid off.

Each faith-building story highlights a particular life-giving characteristic of God, revealing a better understanding of who He is and how much He loves you. Page by page, you'll find yourself growing into a more secure, intimate relationship with Him.

If you'd like a peek at God in action, open the pages of this book and witness extraordinary moments in ordinary lives — in-time encounters with God that left an eternal impact. You, too, can know that He's right there with you — guarding, guiding, and giving you just what you need at just the right time. If He did it for others, He'll do it for you.
