I am delighted and super-excited to share the Encounters of the Heart series with readers. The series is based on Proverbs 4:23 (KJV) – “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Although the books are in a series, they are standalone novels.
What do I want readers to learn from the series?
I hope readers will realize that there is usually more to a person’s behavior than what meets the eyes. There are usually innate circumstances in an individual’s life that impact his/her behavior and disposition. However, having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ makes a difference. Jesus Christ transforms lives and brings hope in the midst of despair.
Further, I hope readers will be reminded that being in love is simply wonderful. It is okay to love passionately, very passionately. However, loving someone is never as easy as we would like it to be. Keep in mind that, “Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;” (1 Corinthians 13:4-6)
Importantly, all our actions and choices are driven by the desires of our hearts. In light of that, we need to stay connected to God through prayer, meditating on His Word and then applying His Word in our daily living. God is all powerful and there is nothing that will happen in our lives that will surprise Him. We will be victorious in all our situations if we continue to rely on Him and seek help to overcome difficult situations.
