Mercy Never Sleeps: Sleepless Thoughts on Faith, Heaven, and the Fear of Heights by Jamie Blaine
Maybe God still moves and speaks in mysterious ways-some even stranger than we might ever expect.
Jamie Blaine's life isn't exactly going as planned. When a twist of fate places the late-night psychiatric crisis guy on 24/7 call, his insomnia ramps up to desperate stages as he veers closer to becoming the very kind of person he's trying to save.
After a well-meaning colleague offers a workbook promising "the divine secret of life," Blaine throws himself into the stereotypical journey of self-discovery with hilarious and heartbreaking conclusions that are anything but cliched.
Jamie travels time to untangle his own story of God through the wilderness, battling alligators, acrophobia, anaphylactic shock, Christian tricksters, Christmas, insomnia zombies, hymn-singing bridge jumpers, preteen bullies, paranoid ER patients armed with knives, hatchet-wielding housewives, septuagenarian pugilists, locust swarms, and ghosts of the present, future, and past.
If you've ever felt lost and stumbling, like you'll never find your way to purpose, plans, or the promised land, Mercy Never Sleeps is a traveling companion, a field guide to making peace with your own rambling path home.
