Leaning on the Promises by Laura V. Hilton

Today, let's focus on the promises of God:

‘If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.’  - John 15:7 (NIV)

God isn't a man, and He doesn't lie. It's impossible for God to lie. Has He said, and will He do it? Or has He spoken and He won't make it good? He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it. There hasn't failed one word of all His promises. Not a word failed of any good thing which the Lord had spoken to the tribe of Israel. All came to pass. 

 You know in your heart and soul that not one thing has failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spoke concerning you. All has come to pass for you, and not one of them has failed.  

Take heart, for I believe God that it will be just as it was told me. For all the promises of God in Him are yes, and in Him, Amen, to the glory of God through us. 

 (Verses compiled from Numbers 23:19, Hebrews 6:18, 1 Thessalonians 5:24, 1 Kings 8:56, Joshua 21:45 and 23:14, Acts 17:25, and 1 Corinthians 1:20 various translations)

Amish Wanderer
by Laura V. Hilton


Desperate for a Ticket Out

Bethany Weiss is ready to leave town. Tongues haven't stopped clacking in Jamesport, MO, since her daed, the bishop, was admitted to a mental hospital after hurting their small Amish community. But her sharpest wounds Bethany hides from prying eyes, quietly biding her time until she can take a chance at a new life—away from Jamesport and away from God.

Searching for a Home
Silas Beiler was kicked out of his own family's home. Dogged by a rough childhood and a family who blames him for each new disaster, he begins hitchhiking across the country, sleeping in barns where he can, working for food when possible—headed for Pennsylvania, in the hope of some stability.

A Memory of Lemonade
When Bethany spies a man asleep in the hayloft, she first fears the return of an unwelcome suitor. But when it is Silas who turns and speaks, the memories flood back: a happy summer six years ago full of lemonade, long walks, and budding courtship. Now, however, those months of bliss seem naïve and idyllic. Will their old love overcome new pain? Or will hurt and rejection continue to haunt their path?
