The In-Between Place by Kat Armstrong: Blog Tour & Giveaway with JustRead Publicity Tours

The In-Between Place JustRead Blog Tour 

Welcome to the Blog Tour for The In-Between Place by Kat Armstrong, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE BOOK

The In-Between Place

Title: The In-Between Place
Author: Kat Armstrong
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: January 5, 2021
Genre: Christian Life/Spiritual Growth

Jesus’ journey to the woman at the well in Samaria offers insights and hope for women today to make peace with the past, find hope in the present, and step into the future. 

God wants us to move toward the goodness He has planned for us. But what do we do when challenges stop our forward momentum? What’s the next step when we fall into a pit of despair with the determination knocked right out of us? 

On his way from Judea to Galilee, Jesus traveled through Samaria, a broken place everyone knew to avoid. In Samaria he stopped in Shechem, where evil had gained such a foothold of power that it eventually reigned. Yet the place once condemned as somewhere no one wanted to visit—let alone hang out in for a while—was the location of one Samaritan woman’s most hope-filled encounter with the Savior. 

The In-Between Place offers deeply important insights to anyone who feels stuck and can’t see a way forward. It is for the person who feels that if she looks left, her face will be scraped by an immovable boulder, and if she looks right, she’ll see nothing but hard to handle. It’s for the person who feels lost and is not sure she is worth the effort to be found, for the person who feels overlooked and unfulfilled. Because sometimes Jesus saves our greatest spiritual breakthroughs for our in-between places.

EXCERPT


Twenty years as a Christian has taught me that following Jesus means abandoning our own way. If I’m honest, I don’t naturally like the fact that surrendering is required to follow in Jesus’ footsteps. But I have come to love it, even glory in it. Jesus had to show me how everything I was doing to survive was actually keeping me from living life to the fullest. He did the same thing with the woman at the well in John 4.


As Jesus’ conversation with the Samaritan woman progressed, he asked her to go and call her husband and come back with the man in tow. It was a request Jesus knew she couldn’t manage. Her response was truthful; she didn’t have a husband. Thanks to the historical context study of great Bible scholars, we see that her circumstances were not a result of rebelliousness. In fact, she was just trying to survive. Jesus affirmed her truth telling with this statement: “You’ve had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband” (v. 17). What I hope we will see together in this woman’s story is that none of us can thrive in life independently. And unless our survival technics include surrendering to Jesus, we will hitch ourselves to people and provisions that won’t meet our deepest needs.
