"Embrace the One who stretched out His arms on a Cross to give you an abundant life."
- Mesu Andrews

We start May with LIFE and we welcome Biblical Fiction author, Mesu Andrews on the very topic of eternal life. 

August 27, 2012, I watched my dad draw his last breath. I’d never seen anyone die before. It wasn’t scary. It was a bit surreal—that moment when heaven met earth, when mortal was swallowed up in immortality.
My nephew was reading Dad’s favorite verse, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full,” John 10:10. BTW, my dad died at 10:10pm while listening to John 10:10—about living fully.


Life. Our God intends it to be full until we draw that last breath. Full. Productive. Abundant, some translations say. In my 2016 release, Miriam, I wrote about Moses’ sister when she was eighty-six years old. She’d been a slave her whole life, and she thought her life would end in Egypt—a slave. But God had other plans.
At the end of ten plagues, she found herself walking between two miraculous walls of water, on dry ground through the middle of the Reed Sea. She did a little jig at the end of that walk. Led all the women with a tambourine—at eighty-six years old.


What about you? Do you feel enslaved by a job, a marriage, rebellious children, chronic illness? Are you tired of waiting, worrying, wondering, and wanting? Then stop. Embrace the One who stretched out His arms on a Cross to give you an abundant life. Accept Him. Receive life. His life. Breathe Him in, and breathe out His sweet presence to those around you—that they, too, might come to know life in Him. "

Mesu Andrews' deep understanding of and love for God’s Word brings the biblical world alive for her readers. She and her husband, Roy, live in a log cabin snuggled into the beautiful Appalachian Mountains with their dog, Zeke. The Andrews' have two married daughters and a small tribe of grandkids. Mesu loves movies, football, waterfalls, and travel.

The Hebrews call me prophetess, the Egyptians a seer.
But I am neither. I am simply a watcher of Israel 
and the messenger of El Shaddai.
When He speaks to me in dreams, I interpret. When He whispers a melody, I sing.

At eighty-six, Miriam had devoted her entire life to loving El Shaddai and serving His people as both midwife and messenger. Yet when her brother Moses returns to Egypt from exile, he brings a disruptive message. God has a new name – Yahweh – and has declared a radical deliverance for the Israelites.

Miriam and her beloved family face an impossible choice: cling to familiar bondage or embrace uncharted freedom at an unimaginable cost. Even if the Hebrews survive the plagues set to turn the Nile to blood and unleash a maelstrom of frogs and locusts, can they weather the resulting fury of the Pharaoh?

Enter an exotic land where a cruel Pharaoh reigns, pagan priests wield black arts, and the Israelites cry out to a God they only think they know.
