Opening Her Heart To Love
As Angels Sing by Linda Buice is a wonderful contemporary novel about second chances.
God is the God of restoration. He can restore the lost years. Sometimes life can make us bitter and we turn from God. “I stopped believing in God a long time ago.” God never stops believing in us. He longs to welcome the prodigals home.
People work hard to fill the gap in their lives. “Something is always missing.” They think work, money, parties or pleasure will fill the hole. They do not realise it is a God-shaped hole that only He can fill.
The novel has a wonderful little girl with Downs Syndrome as its focus. Linda Buice shows how we are all unique and special to God. We all have our own giftings. It is beautiful to see the child like faith in action.
Family break ups hurt. The ripple effect spreads far and wide. The novel explores this hurt.
Fear can motivate actions or hold us back. Fear is harmful and unhelpful. We need to give our fears to God and replace them with faith.
A mother’s love is a powerful force. Sometimes it takes a near tragedy for us to realise where our heart lies.
The novel is about loss. However if we know Jesus, we never die, we just move on to eternity. It is painful for those left behind.
I really enjoyed As Angels Sing. It was a powerful novel, beautifully written. It touched my heart and soul. Love as God intended conquers all. A very touching read that will brighten any day.
