My Take

This delightful rhyming book is based on the scripture Romans 8:39. 

" I think I'll run away
thought Brett one boring day.
There's nothing here to do,
But sit and feel so blue."

" I want to have some fun
to yell and jump and run.
A secret place I'll go
Where no one else will know."  

Thus begins a journey of exploration by Brett to experience multiple adventures by trying out different occupations that might bring excitement and purpose into his life.   What activities might strike his fancy and fulfill his dreams?  

He thinks perhaps being an astronaut, a climber of mountains, a spelunker, a sailor, a zookeeper, a diver, a brave knight, and a pilot ( just to name a few ), might be super cool.  The refrain in the book that tugs at his heartstrings each time he moves on is... "But will God still find me?"  All these undertakings are amazing but will God stay steadfast in his life and be there for him? 

The book answers his queries by giving him this answer to tuck into his heart:

"High above the sky or in the deepest ocean - nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God. "  (Romans 8:39)

 These words assure him that no matter where he goes and what he chooses to do with his life, God will always be with him.  It alleviates all his fears of ever being separated from God. 

The illustrations are vibrant, colourful and expressive and the message of the book is positive and comforting.  This book would be a wonderful gift for kids who are moving, graduating or feeling lost and alone.  Both young and old will be encouraged knowing that God is omnipotent and will never leave them or forsake them no matter where life takes them.  I highly recommend this book.
