Exuberant joy is a Gift flowing from the certainty of faith in a Saviour. Often external but most times internal.
If ‘faith’ in a Saviour reveals the certainty that a name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life……….not in pencil……. that it can be easily rubbed out but in Blood, then that thought surely makes the heart rejoice and overflow with JOY. .
Acknowledgement to Dr.Michael Youssef for encouragement and thoughts in his devotional Joy Abiding and Abounding.
To you this day……May a bubble of JOY burst through your circumstances and bring you PEACE.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
