Faith Versus Fear
Prayer is a major theme within the novel. Sometimes prayer is our only course of action as events spiral out of control. Prayer does not have to be long and elaborate. It is simply talking to God.
The novel also deals with the area of faith versus fear. If one focuses on God and trusts Him, then fear will lose its power.
Uncommon Ground shows how complex family relationships can be. Sometimes it is only when relationships are threatened and about to be lost that you realise what you have.
Grief has the power to do harm to belief and trust in God. Grief and fear can tear one away from Him but God loves us, and once we have said yes to God, He will not let us go. It is only a question of when and not if the prodigal will return.
One cannot force our loved ones to accept Jesus. The decision must be theirs alone. “Faith in Christ was a beautiful experience your loved ones needed to accept on their own.” Our job is to pray for their salvation and leave the convicting to God.
I really enjoy Joy Ohagwu’s writings and devoured Uncommon Ground in just one sitting. I am looking forward to the subsequent books in the series.
