So how could I put a murder into a book of inspiration and encouragement?
How could I include murder, into a Christian story?
The truth is, life happens.
It is never perfect, and everyone experiences problems, hardship, pain and hurt.
Perhaps not many people, experience a murder....as this is probably the exceptional ordeal.
However, the ultimate pain can be turned around with the right ingredients.
This is what happens for the heroin of my story.
Ariana looses her parents in a terrible vengeful act, when she is only two years old.
(This is not detailed or gruesome).....
For years she wonders why this happened? as do her extended family.
The a long lost chest is discovered which holds many secrets and unravels a mystery.
Growing up she can allow her circumstances to give her a chip on her shoulder...
She can blame God for what has happened.
She can cry over her loss refusing to go on with her life.
As Ariana does, she can use the gifts God has given her to build a future.
Her gifts are:
A forgiving, loving, nature.
An intelligent, inquiring, mind.
And, a beautiful singing voice.
She grew up learning and believing Gods Word...
And, she clung onto His promises.
This is one of them ~ ~ ~
Jesus looked at them and said,
“With man this is impossible, but, with God all things are possible.”
BELIEVE YOU CAN, AND YOU WILL!
