Seeking The Truth
Sovereign Justice by Sarah Sawyer is a powerful Christian historical novel. It is the fourth book in the Choctaw Tribune series but can be read as a stand-alone. I recommend reading the previous books first for maximum enjoyment.
I enjoyed meeting up with familiar faces. The leading lady is very much a strong modern woman of her time. She seeks truth and justice and is prepared to go the extra mile in its pursuit. She believes “a woman’s place is wherever God puts her.”
Being in touch with God means listening to His voice and being attentive. “If you really feel its what the Creator has called you to do, then do it.” God’s plans are the best for our lives. If we follow His plans, we will not fail.
Prayer is important. “God, help me… She didn’t know what to pray.” When words fail us, God hears our hearts.”
God understands our emotions. “It’s all right to be angry. Just don’t stay there. God knows.” God wants us to be transparent with Him. He understands our feelings.
When we come to Christ we are a new creation. As a character comes to Jesus, the reader can ‘feel’ the weight lift off him.
The Choctaw heritage is important. The reader’s heart breaks for the racial injustice.
We need to take care of the orphans. I loved the fact that the Judge took an orphan under his wing and shaped him into the man he became. This reminds the reader that God takes each one of us to His heart, loving and shaping us if we just let Him.
I really enjoyed Sovereign Justice and am loving the whole Choctaw Tribune series. I am being educated whilst being entertained.
