Aspiring Daughter

Book Review - Hiding in the Light


“It is so easy to get caught up in our own little world that we don’t see the needs, sorrows and longings of whom we pass by”

Today I would like to share with you this truly 
touching and challenging story of a young woman who found Christ and His freedom from Islam’s hold.
It is a story of Christ’s faithfulness to a girl trapped in 
a hostile home who just wanted to be loved 
and cherished by those she called family. 
Through loving neighbours and God ordained friendships 
Christ showed His great love toward Rifqa and she decided 
that if Jesus died for her sins and wanted her to be 
His child she would live her life for Him
 no matter what the cost.

Rifqa was not like most other girls in America,
free to go to church or even speak with Christians, yet she
risked her life many times sneaking to bible study or church
to learn more of her saviour and read His word.
Her world was one of fear that her family would find out
about her faith and one night her fear became reality.
With her families threats of death or being sent to
an Islamic country to be disciplined fresh in her mind,
Rifqa ran to the only friends she had at the local church.
This began her long hard road of fighting to stay
both free to serve her Lord and alive.

Rifqa being under age in America (under 18 years)
endured years of court cases to be saved from her family
and suffered many hardships such as cancer, juvenile detention, being placed in many different foster homes and knowing
that her Christian friends helping her were placing themselves
at risk with the law for her sake.
To this day she lives under the risk for her life from her family.
Yet through it all she will follow Jesus.

I was so challenged by this book that my precious
Oma gave to me. It reminded me that I am so privileged
to be called a daughter of the King of Kings and to be saved
by His amazing grace. It is so easy to think only of myself
and not see those Christ has called me to love and help,
like Rifqa’s neighbours and friends did for her.
I pray that by God’s grace I will fearlessly serve my
Saviour as Rifqa has.

I would like to recommend this book as an encouraging
and challenging read for older girls and ladies ,
I say older because the wording is a little graphic in a few places.

It is called “Hiding in the Light”

God Bless
