There's Hope!

Same Life, New Story
By Jan Silvious

We can learn so much from the past, even if the subjects are from before Jesus walked the Earth! The Bible does not tell stories from many women, but the stories it does tell are remarkable. Jan has wonderfully written of the situations the following women experienced: Naomi, Leah, Rahab, Deborah, Hannah, Anna, Jehosheba, Abigail, Naaman, and Elizabeth. Each women knew that life on Earth is temporary and was able to push through or move on after less than ideal conditions.
I do not have a past I need to run away from or a dramatic situation I cannot deal with. I know that life is very hard without God and that I need to turn to him for my every care and concern. Reading these amazing stories just drives it home that even after a bad day at work, life goes on. Even after a small fight with my friends or husband, there are good things to come. I will definitely let my friends and family borrow this great read.
