“Where is she?” Miriam could tell her husband was successful finding the best friend, Amanda.
“She wants to sit alone up the road for a minute”.
“I can see you have made peace with yourself, haven’t you?”
“I had help along the way.”
Paul knowing without Angels faith and forgiveness he would have been guilty forever with no healing. He was glad she was home.
After visiting with Miriam for a short time Angel knew she had to go to Michael. She couldn’t wait any longer. They all walked towards Michaels then said goodbyes for now a short distance from the farm.
“Thank you for coming this far with me. Thank you for sending Paul.” She whispered as she kissed and hugged Miriam.
“Oh, God, give me the strength”
I have not given you a heart of fear.
What had she done? Denying Michael her love. She had played God and done what she thought best for him. Causing him such pain. Could he forgive her now?
Thanking him as she kneeled down at his feet. Over and over telling him how she was so grateful for all he had done for her. How she had found Christ though Michael and his faithfulness.
“Oh, Michael, Michael, I’m sorry” Oh, God forgive me.
“Amanda, Amanda” Michael cried as he reached down for her. Lifting her to him holding her she said:
“Sarah, Michael. My name is Sarah. I don’t know the rest of it. Only that much. Sarah.”
The best gift she could give him, herself.
The name fit her so well. A wanderer in foreign lands, a barren woman filled with doubt. Yes Sarah of old had become a symbol of trust in God and ultimately the mother of a nation. Sarah. A benediction. Sarah. A barren woman who conceived a son. His beautiful cherished wife would someday give him a child.
“It’s a promise, Lord, isn’t it?”
Come, let us return to the Lord; for he has torn, that he may heal us; he has stricken, and he will bind us up. Hosea 6:1
This brings us to the end of the Book but not to the end of His Redeeming Love. I hope you enjoyed traveling along as I journeyed with Michael and Angel.
As I did, I bet you found many similarities in your life where God has spoke to you like He did to Angel. It’s my prayer you will listen to that small, quiet voice and take head. God is always there for you. Angel had to find her way to God on her own. We too have to find Him. He’s reaching out to each of us. Yes he can use Michael and others to help us to Him. But we need to put our trust in Him and worship Him not the Michael’s God has used in our lives to bring us near to HIM.
God Bless you and I hope you will follow me on to the next book.
Starting August 8th I will be blogging from this book. I love Beth Moore. I hope you will join me as I listen to God through Beth Moore’s experiences as she helps me
