A Demonstration of the Power of God's Word
This memoir is about Mabel, a remarkable young girl left alone in the world. Her life is shattered when both her mother and brother die, and her father abandons her. While struggling to survive, she is mistreated and falsely accused. Mabel's strong faith in her heavenly Father is put to the test. Will she ever have a home to shut out the cold or a family with hearts of love as she once had?
After enduring four turbulent years, Mabel receives a letter from her papa. It is postmarked Oklahoma City. She uses all her money for a train ticket and goes searching for him. It is 1917, and without any modern communication, will Mabel find her papa in a city of 90,000 people? If by a miracle she finds him, will she be able to love and forgive him?
2 Corinthians 4:8-9—"We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed."
Mabel's young life is shipwrecked and torn to bits. She is troubled on every side, yet she is not forsaken by her heavenly Father. Will He ever restore her life and mend her broken heart? Can she believe in His plan for her life and trust He will give her good things when all she has known is affliction?
