Knowing The Way Home
God’s presence permeates the novel. He is what keeps Lily Rose going. Through all circumstances she looks to God. She talks to God and she thanks God. “Thank you God. Thank you so much.” Lily Rose recognises God’s hand on her life. “An angel was watching over me… Thank you Lord.” Another character says “I never go nowhere without Him.” Whatever we face in life, facing it with God makes the way bearable.
The novel shows the importance of being equally yoked in a marriage. “Does he know Jesus?” is the most important question to ask before embarking on a life together. God longs for His children to know Him and to include Him in their marriage.
