Jabez Blanket Ministry International – Backpacks of Hope

I have blogged about this ministry in the past – here – I just want to bring more attention to this ministry and the efforts of so many who have made it a successful ministry to orphans worldwide – of course giving the Glory to God!

This poem is such a well articulated summary of what this ministry does and what they are about – I felt it needed to be shared. ** I did NOT write this – I give full credit to Sharon James, Co-founder of Jabez Blanket Ministry International “Backpacks of Hope” **

Brush of Angel’s Wings – Book Review

Booksneeze Book Review of “Brush of Angel’s Wings” by Ruth Reid

The story takes place in an Amish community in Michigan called Hope Falls. The main characters are Rachel, a single Amish girl  and Jordan who is back in the community, staying with his uncle, because he promised his mother he would give her Amish roots a chance. Another “character” is Nathaniel, an angel of God, whose job it is to *”shepherd them toward the path of healing and love.” ( *from book jacket)

Brush of Angel’s Wings is the first book I have read by author, Ruth Reid. I enjoyed the author’s style of writing, the way she told the story but I was less impressed by the story itself.

I have really enjoyed novels set in Amish country in the past, I think it was the “angel” part of this book that was what I didn’t care for. The angel’s role in this book did not “sit well” with me but this is just my opinion.

The author uses the authentic Pennsylvania Dutch dialogue and provides a glossary for those not familiar with this type of speech.

I would give this novel a 4 out of 5 rating – even though I didn’t care for the Angels and Demons inclusion in this book, the writing was well done and compelling.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com <http://BookSneeze®.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255

My Father…

Loves me… John 3:16  For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Cares for me… Matthew 6:26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Forgives me… Psalm 103:12 as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

Is compassionate... Psalm 103:4-5 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Is giving… Romans 8:32  He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

Is understanding… Psalm 139:1-2 You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.

Is accepting… Psalm 139:1-6 You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Satisfies… Psalm 107:9 for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.

Persistently persues me… Luke 19:10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.

is Reason… Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.

Pardons… Psalm 103:3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,

Heals… Isaiah 53:5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.

Redeems… Job 19:25 I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth.

is Loving-kindness… Psalm 86:15 But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.

Renews… Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Is Righteous… Jeremiah 9:23-24 This is what the Lord says “Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches, but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the Lord.

Is Gracious… Ephesians 1:7-8  In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the richesof God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding,

Is Sovereign… Psalm 103:19 The Lord has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.

Betrayed, Crucified, Resurrected – Victorious

Isaiah 53
  3He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. 4Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.7He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

Matthew 27, 28

Betrayed by one of His own

Beaten

Mocked

Crown of thorns

Scarlet robe

Spit on

The nails

Three hours of darkness – the wrath of God

Forsaken

Earth quaked

Veil rent

“It is finished”

Tomb procured

Body prepared

Sepulchre sealed

Stone rolled

Guards in place

The earth quaked

Angel declared

“He is not here, He is risen”
