"On The Road To Hope”: Real Life Journeys of Faith is an anthology compiled by various award winning writers, screenplay writers and published Christian authors who have written about extraordinary spiritual journeys through some of life’s most severe circumstances, depicting tragedies, miracles,adversities or life events that were extraordinary in nature. Rabiah, 12 years old lay in a coma for 14 months after most of her brain was obliterated. Doctors removed all life support and bid the family to come near for final goodbyes. Mom and Dad were at her bedside, all support removed. Arrangements for final rest were in process. As parents prepared to leave the room, within just 7 minutes of all support being removed, Rabiah opened her eyes and said, “I love you.” This is just one of the many miracle stories that will touch your soul.
It is a spiritually uplifting collection of short stories meant to inspire and encourage individuals. This book highlights the common threads of faith that have bound together a group of suffering Christians for the common and sole purpose of sharing with the downcast the ultimate message of hope that leads to increased faith, maturity, trust, and, ultimately, incredible opportunities in life.
Each chapter represents a new individual and their journey of faith and conveys to the readers the message of hope, faith and grace to persevere in trials and hardships.
Each story has an ending pointing to the miraculous love and power of God in someone’s life. On The Road to Hope could not be timelier. It will show how others have suffered or endured trials and onsets of perplexities to the point of what looked like a hopeless life event. Whether it's pain, economical uncertainty, adversity, hopelessness, disease, financial upheaval, unforgiveness, or the upsetting loss of loved ones, this book will take the reader on a journey that will inspire, encourage and help them find renewed faith to see their way through life’s circumstance or adversity with their Faith in God.
They will see that there are others on the same road facing the same challenges, obstacles, trials, and tribulations. If only they knew their path can lead to blessed hope. If only they trust, believe and develop an intimate faith in a Savior who loves them beyond compare and connect with other Christians who are able to shed some light, take their hands, and give them guidance along the way on their road to hope.
