Determined to stop focusing on her own problems, Maddie sets out to make this the best Christmas ever for the little boy and his ailing grandmother. What she doesn’t count on is him capturing her heart in the process. Will God orchestrate an even bigger Christmas gift than Maddie could imagine, or will she lose Chance for good when the Simmons family suffers a setback?
God’s timing is perfect, even if it doesn’t feel like it while waiting on something you desperately want. His grace is sufficient to fill any emptiness. He sees all of our needs and cares when we hurt. God provides what’s best for everyone involved in a situation. Ephesians 3:20 is an underlying theme, that God “is able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine.” We have to trust Him to get it right.
