Do not forget to entertain strangers, for in doing so some of you have entertained angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2
This prose is based on the scripture of Angels interceding and doing the will of God. For his kingdom come and his will be done on earth as it is in heaven. All throughout the bible, God gives us glimpses of the spiritual warfare that the Angles and demons battle for the hearts and souls of people.
Mary Katherine has suffered from a heart defect all of her life so she knows how fragile life is. Working at a teen center to keep young people off the streets and out of gangs she has experienced the pull of destruction in the people she serves. When her doctor reveals that her heart is needing a transplant sooner than later, she makes the decision to do her life dream of serving in a orphanage in Africa. She makes this decision without telling her family, friends, and Marcus the man whose heart is taken by Mary Katherine. However, Mary sees no future with him and discourages any pursuit. Amongst all this activity, there are angels that working for a greater purpose than Mary Katherine or Marcus will know as they seek what God has planned and experience his will in their lives.
In Christian fiction such as this, there is many lessons learned, one being that God pursues and is in battle for the heart of his people. Just as Marcus pursues Mary, the Lord pursues us. Just as we isolate our selves like Mary, God brings people that don’t give up. There are many ways to give up on life and only one way to live life – for the glory of God. That is what makes this a special read.
