He is there everywhere we look: in the trials, in the blessings and in the daily situations we endure. God is in everyday life, providing His divine protection when needed most. In author Dennis Borden's second published book, Vivid Brushstrokes II, he explores the reality of God in everyday life, while revealing the Holy Spirit within each of us after salvation. He characterizes the Christian journey as a desert experience: a voyage into the wilderness where we must call on Jesus in faith to make sense of our circumstances and understand God's direction. Within the book's collection of stories are spiritual analogies that see common situations in life, even the author's childhood farm memories, demonstrating the Bible's truths, andthat detours in life are opportunities to trust God in storms. Dennis hopes his book prompts people to be a lightin the dark world and know God is always there.
