Do you remember the house you were brought up in? Do you remember it looking this run-down? When I lived in my home in Weleetka, Oklahoma, it was not this run-down.

“In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as [it is] in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.” Matthew 6:9-12
Our Father in heaven, You have blessed us by looking at us as Your children. We honor Your name and ask that You cause Your name to be revered throughout the heavens and upon earth.

Jesus beaten. Jesus nailed. Jesus suffering. Jesus forgiving. Jesus saving. Jesus providing. Jesus forsaken. Jesus thirsty. Jesus paid. Jesus died. Jesus pierced. Jesus entombed.
Hiding in the Light reveals the life of one young Muslim woman as God takes her by the hand and leads her through the valley of the shadow of death in the presence of her enemies and ushers her into His pure Light.
God worked in a child’s life, and she trusted that He would protect her and keep her whatever came her way. With each trial, God proved Himself to her, and her faith grew to an uncommon depth.
Rifqa Bary leaned on Scripture in times of trials and terror.
“The LORD will give strength unto His people; the LORD will bless His people with peace.” Psalm 29:11
Bary pursued freedom … freedom from abuse and freedom to worship God. “Jesus is freedom and forgiveness, hope and love, peace and purpose, plain and simple.”
With God’s help, she came to know the freedom to forgive.
May you know the healing that comes with the freedom of forgiveness, hope, love, peace, and purpose that comes only through a deep faith in Jesus.
This book is an inspiring testimony of God reaching into an unlikely person’s life and using that person to capture the world’s attention and challenge an easy-faith approach to Christianity.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for my honest review.
