The book has guardian angels, prayer warriors. pastors both going against and seeking the will of God, struggling Christians, prisoners longing for Christ’s touch, angelic and no so nice elders and is all together unputdownable.
Jackie Macgirvin is an award-winning author and ghostwriter who lives in Kansas City, Missouri and attends the International House of Prayer. She has a passion to see Christians live with their eyes on eternity and not be distracted by the visible, temporal realm.
Jackie’s book demonstrates very clearly how easy it is to lose sight of God’s will in what we can perceive as being His will, but is really ours. It also describes how, at any stage of our life, we can surrender ourselves to Him, and do His will, no matter what our age or health. Underpinned throughout with verses from the Bible, this is a tremendous book.
It has a powerful interwoven story line.
Pastor Paul is a young seminary graduate called as interim pastor to a small rural church. He is full of zeal, but mostly for self-promotion. He sincerely loves the Lord but his past emotional wounds leave him vulnerable and in need of attention and affirmation. He constantly frustrates his angel, Saldu, who tries to steer him toward a more humble attitude.
Sarah Edwards is a new church member, a recent widow who gets saved at age 71. Unknown to her, Sarah has two angels to help disciple her and she is maturing rapidly in the faith. She is confused by her prophetic gifting, which leads her to offend some church members. She also prayer walks in front of Pastor Paul’s house. When his wife sees her pacing back and forth “talking to no one,” Paul quickly writes her off as a “wacko.”
Through the lives of Paul and Sarah you will see that the really wonderful news is that living a life pleasing to God has nothing to do with gritting your teeth and trying harder (again and again and again). God rewards you for simple, loving, serving actions throughout your days, stepping outside your own concerns to truly see others in His name.
The Holy Spirit is on this book. It will change your life, we promise you that!
Most Christians don’t have the concept, as we should have, that this life is preparation for the next one. This book shows us just that. And it encourages us to pray more. A must-own book.
