God’s Love is AMAZING!

It’s time for part three of Found, a short story and allegory of the gospel. Check out part one here and part two here. I hope that you enjoy the story and are reminded of God’s amazing grace and love!

Rachel

 Her thoughts were interrupted by a gentle touch on her shoulder.  Assuming it was one of the local farmers, she accepted the help of the friendly hand and stood up.  Too ashamed to look any person in the eye, she stared at the dirt. She assumed the stranger would walk on, but instead, he stayed.  

In a choked voice, the girl mumbled, “What do you think of what the prince did?”

Her helper lifted her face with his finger and looked her in the eye.  “Don’t you know who I am?”

She looked up at him and nearly fainted.  She was met with a familiar smile that she had seen a few days before.  Her grief and confusion over the last days had been awful. But this? Her savior was alive?  How?  Why?

Her rescuer put a finger on her lips to silence her.  He smiled and motioned for them to walk onwards. “Come this way.”  

She started down a long path with the man.  They walked through lush meadows, and he led her to a beautiful waterfall.  They watched as the water flowed over the rocks, and she decided the dirt on her face didn’t seem to fit her surroundings.   She dipped a hand into the cool water and splashed some on her face.  

While she was with this man, her savior, her old self seemed to disappear.  Her worry and grief faded away when she followed him. She felt a new spring in her step, and she had a new hope in her heart.  Her hair and dress were clean now and wildflowers adorned both. Her eyes were wide open, and her smile began to match that of the prince’s.

She didn’t know who she was in the eyes of the townspeople, but she knew that her savior loved her despite her terrible past.  More than that, he had helped her to leave it entirely behind.  

Soon, they came upon a dark valley.  The icy wind blew hard, and the sun disappeared behind the clouds.  The path was difficult, but she was not afraid. Her rescuer kept her safe and led the way.  He taught her through it all, and she came out of the darkness knowing that the prince was trustworthy and kind.  

Finally, they came to a giant palace.  He took her across a wide, rushing river, and they soon stood on the soft grass on the other side.  The palace was beautiful and bright. In fact, the sun looked dull next to the brilliant light of the palace, and she shivered with excitement as they drew near.  The magnificent door swung open at their arrival. The front room was full of majestic people, clothed in rich gowns. At the same time, however, their glory was insignificant compared to the king’s.  As she glanced around, she suddenly noticed that her prince had undergone a great transformation. White robes were magnificently draped over him, and a crown had been placed on his head. A feast was laid out on enormous tables, and the celebrations for a wedding had begun.

Her prince then stood up.   He said he had found his bride.  The prince gazed down at the girl and announced with great love in his voice and face.

“This is my bride, Melody.”

Then, with a loving gaze, the prince looked into Melody’s eyes.

“Welcome home.”

  1. WOW! What a beautiful story!❤ I love how it shows that He leads us through the dark places in our walk with Him until He brings us HOME! The descriptions were so well written, too; it really came alive in my mind!
    I haven’t written many short stories… I mostly write huge dramatic novels and move on to some other more interesting idea before I get half way through! 😉

    1. That means SO much, Hadassah! It makes me so happy when God uses something as simple as a story to remind us of His love. Thank you for reading the story!!

  2. I really loved this story! Sometimes when we hear the death and resurrection account over and over it becomes bland and routine. But when we see it in a different light, it refreshes our joy and thankfulness all over again. I’m so thankful I serve a risen God who loves and pursues me even when I reject His Truth. What a great reminder to live out the Gospel in this hard time.

    1. Thank you so much for that encouragement, Hope!! It means a lot! I know that God is really the one who gives me the words to write: after all, this plot came directly from the Bible!☺. Maybe I’ll write about that sometime… (Thanks for the idea!❤)

  3. This was an amazing story, Rachel! You are a very talented writer, who is using your skills for God. ❤ My faith has grown in many ways that I could have never imagined. I am grateful that God is shaping me in the way that He sees fits. I have learned to allow His word to transform how I live, so that I may be a reflection of Christ. I want to live a life that glorifies Him! — I do enjoy writing short stories. Normally, I would think of great story ideas and start writing them, but would never finish them. However, I am currently almost complete with writing a short story for the first time ever! I like how it is coming out. 🙂 Out of random curiosity, are you apart of the Young Writer's Workshop?

    1. Aww, thank you so much! I’m so grateful to God for giving me my interest in writing and giving me lots to write about! I’m so thankful for His Word, encouragement, and leading. It’s so good hearing from other Christian writers and bloggers! Haha, yeah I’m pretty similar: I have plenty of unfinished ideas and stories… But don’t we all?😊 Congrats on making it to the end of your short story!! ❤ No, I’m not a part of Young Writers Workshop, but it looks really neat! Are you a part of it? Thanks for your encouraging comment!❤

      1. I agree! I am thankful for His word, encouragement and leading as well. Without Him, I would be lost, yet He found me. ❤ Haha, yeah, I think we all have unfinished stories! Aw, thank you! No, I am not a part of the Young Writers Workshop either. I recently discovered it and it does seem pretty neat! I hope to possibly join one day. 😊
