Diane Batchelor initially wrote the book as a gift to her family and friends to mark her recent 60th birthday. However, it is vividly apparent that the book is much more than a collection of her personal encounters with God, but also a powerful testimony to everyone that God is faithful and sovereign.

In GOD In The Meantime, Diane Batchelor takes the readers on a page-turning journey throughout her life, recounting stories of God’s sovereignty and His faithfulness to His promises. From her first, real love and eventual husband, to long awaited children, health struggles and everything in between, she allows us a glimpse into how God is at work even when we don’t see him in the meantime. In a very vulnerable and intimate way, she lets the readers into the painful corners her life and shows them that God is in complete control even in our most chaotic and difficult times.

Throughout the book, Diane Batchelor

shows she is a master storyteller with a brilliant sense of humor. Her choice of words paint a beautiful picture and takes the reader through an adventure of trusting God, claiming His promises, and believing His word. With that, she humbly invites the readers to wait patiently with her through her “mean” or painful times. She exudes a certain peace that can only stem from a complete understanding that her suffering is not in vain. In fact, Diane sees her “mean” times and struggles as “a bag full of tools” with which she is now “equipped to comfort others with the same comfort [she] has received from [God].”

But the book is about more than enduring pain and suffering. It is also about her family, which was brought together by God, and her love for the Caribbean traditions and cultures that shaped her life. Diane Batchelor was born and raised in Jamaica, but she has made a home in Panama since 2006. Herlove for both countries permeates every aspect of the book. She introduces the reader to a Jamaica that is warm, vibrant, and beautiful, yet much more than the popular vacation spot manypeople know and love. She also evokes the age-old ties between Panama and Jamaica. And she introduces the readers to loving,Christian community who supported her throughout her journeyin both countries.

Finally, the book is about the joy and assurance of being guided by the Creator of the Universe. You see, the full title of the sixty-chapter testimony is GOD In The Meantime: A Story of Trusting God’s Voice and Embracing His Timing. As the title suggests, Diane Batchelor reveals that God is not only a God who listens but one who speaks as well.  She reveals the God who speaks to His people in extraordinary ways about major events as well as the mundane, day-to-day stuff. She reminds us that God can derive glory from everything – even the minute details of our everyday lives. We need only learn to recognize the voice of God, and trust that HIS timing is impeccable. She hopes her book helps us all to do that.

GOD In The Meantime is available for purchase as an ebook and in paperback format on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/dp/1626765790/
