Synopsis

Synopsis

Every life holds times of happiness, but also times of disappointment and confusion. We feel pressure from all sides and wonder if God is really there. We call out to God, wanting to know the purpose and value of the season in which we find ourselves. With her wise counsel and gentle encouragement, bestselling author Pamela Reeve leads readers to see the often unrecognized miracle that God is working in our lives to bring about spiritual growth. Drawing from John 15, she reveals the secret to true and lasting peace in the midst of routine or change, in gladness or extreme sorrow. Lush vineyard photographs beautifully illustrate how God lovingly prunes us to bear the fruit of Christ living within us.

A Vineyard in the Desert?

It doesn't make sense. Why would the Master Gardner plant His tender vines in a hostile place where searing sun, nameless blights, and biting pests descend to consume the maturing grapes? Why would He cut back those vines so severely, exposing them to merciless heat? Because the sweetest, most bountiful harvest of fruit will burst from thise very vines, so carefully tended by a wise heart and loving hands.

Within these pages of this stunningly beautiful book, Pam Reeve shows how our Lord brings hope and sweet new wine from the very pressure, sorrows, and dissappointments that encroah upon the seasons of our lives.

Story Behind the Book

An encounter with a desert vineyard in her youth led Dr. Reeve to a lifelong interest in vines and vineyards. In talks to college students and women’s groups around the country, she uses magnificent slides and a gentle message of courage and hope to the overwhelmed, the discouraged, and those enduring difficult seasons in their lives. This book will inspire readers to depend on Christ living within them to produce His character within and fruit through them. It is not our own religious efforts, but Christ living within us, that promotes spiritual growth.
