Terry Meeuwsen, cohost of The 700 Club and Living theLife, issues a challenge to believers everywhere to exchange their safe, status quo existence for the eternal impact of a lifelong "God adventure." This book was born out of an unexpected detour late in Meeuwsens life that led her and her husband to adopt three sisters from the Ukraine. A testimony to Gods provision and faithfulness, hers is an adoption story reminiscent of Gods choosing us to be a part of His family and extending the invitation to join Him in unexpected, uncertain, unpredictable God adventures. But this is much more than one familys story. It is the call of God to His peopleto set aside our plans, sacrifice our comforts, share our blessings, and walk where the path is not always clear.
God Wants You Out of Control
When God says, "Follow Me," He doesnt usually provide a road map.
And thats the beauty of The God Adventure.
Its an open invitation to a lifetime off the beaten path. Terry Meeuwsen, cohost of The 700 Club, beckons the tentative to experience the thrill of saying yes to God and "So long!" to their comfort zones. For Terry and her husband, in their fifties, living the God adventure would mean adopting three Ukrainian sistersin addition to the four children they already had! But the Meeuwsens have never regretted telling the Lord they would be risk-takers for Him.
And you wont, either. So say goodbye to the familiar rut. Set aside your plans. Beautiful surprises abound when you embark on the God adventure!
