Meet Abi, short for Abigail, she is a created character cast in this story as the great granddaughter of Hermnah, servant of Nabal, Ruler of Carmel and his wife, Abigail. Abi’s father was just a boy when their community was threatened with certain death. David and his army of men were on their way there, prepared for annihilation, their assignment being “kill every male in existence.”
Why? What happened to cause this awful fate to be pronounced over their community? Abi, a mother now, is preparing to pass down her family’s historical rendition of a great love story of one of their own, “Queen Abigail the Carmelite” to her soon to be married daughter, also named Abigail. As their thriving community prepares for their annual week of celebration, honoring their matriarch for her acts of heroism, Abi invites us along as she introduces her daughter by way of storytelling to this great woman and her quick actions that saved their community, earning her a marriage proposal from a reserved king.
Additionally, ten short assorted thought-provoking “In Her Shoes” stories are shared here for those of us who have a desire to be a bride for the first time or yet again. Be it a joyful circumstance or an endured plight, the depictions of these created characters will help to confirm readiness or expose naked truths as the Holy Spirit intimately engages, reveals, encourages and, in some cases, heals understanding. God loves all His sons and daughters and as believers members of The Body of Christ, the love found in that relationship reigns supreme, as we, The Church, await the coming of our spiritual Groom, Jesus Christ. We should find great comfort in the knowledge that we are spiritually betrothed to our Beloved, for we are “The Bride of Christ”.
