Guess what? I have been secretly collaborating with the prolific writer Denise “Poetess” Fyffe, of Revealing the Christian Life, on a novella about depression and suicide. It will be released on December 5, 2015.
The Lord spoke to her about writing a book about depression and suicide. As she obediently wrote the short stories, and shared the journey with me, we sought the Lord for His will to be done. Little did I know what the Lord had planned. In the process the Lord revealed that this was more than a collection of stories about the issues. It must also provide healing to those suffering from these devices of Satan. He then informed her that I was to undertake the spiritual analysis of the issues the book highlights. God was reaching for his people in a different way.
So often we read fictional works that entertain but does nothing to edify. This book provides both. Sudden Death unapologetically reveals personal struggles with depression, unforgiveness, anger, jealousy, rejection, heartache, abuse, rape, incest and death. It tugs at our heart strings, opens the wounds, then provides the healing balm.
Do not struggle any longer. Be empowered to walk in freedom and to free others. Get your copy of this book, at Amazon NOW!
The stories are honest and open.
Before coming to the convent, Lena just like many Sisters before her completed a three months stint at the Kingston convent before being sent to St. Ann. This was to ensure that if they had second thoughts, they could easily return home and not become entrenched in convent life.The rules there were not as strict and Lena had a mirror. Her old room was twice as big. She lay in her bed, wondering if she had the will to endure. She did not expect to get much sleep. The months at the convent had helped her to forgive her attacker, but she still had nightmares about the ordeal.
Eventually she drifted off to sleep, but after a few hours, her mind looped the unforgettable incident into her dreams.
Lena could see her uncle as he stood at her room door. Trapping her and threatening to kill her if she screamed. Her mom was not there to help her that night because she had gone into town for the day, on business.
Her uncle was taller than her and his muscles gave him a clear advantage. He held her down and ripped off her underwear. She cried and begged him not to hurt her. Until then, Lena was a virgin.
“Please uncle let me go,” Lena cried.
“Shut yuh mouth gal.” Lena squirmed and struggled. He placed his hand around her throat.
It makes a perfect gift during this season. Everyone must know how to guard against depression. This is a gift loved ones will truly appreciate. Give a gift that keeps on giving.
