The following story is true. I have changed the names, including my own, for many sound reasons. It is about a period in my life that seemed to be the darkest. However, when I reflect on it now, I realize it was one of my greatest gifts from God. I like to believe in the inherent good of all people. I believe in the power of the human soul and hope all intention is for the greater good of others. I have learned that this is not always the case.
When an unfortunate event happens, every person has the free will to choose to make it better or worse by action or inaction. It is my greatest hope that anyone who chooses to read this book about inspiration gains something positive from understanding my experience. I cannot explain some of the events that occurred. If I had not lived it, I would doubt it myself. It defies reason. As Aristotle said many centuries ago, "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."
Namaste — Hindi for I respect the place in you where God resides.
A hard-working family doctor dedicated to serving the poor is falsely accused of insurance fraud. She questions her faith, her life, and her vocation. But a series of unexpected messages from God, channeled through surprising messengers, changes everything and leads her from the dark of despair into "the light of vindication." It's a true story of faith, hope, and justice written by the women who lived it.
I was facing indictment, prison, ruin, and the loss of the medical practice I had worked so hard to build. All I had left was the forlorn hope that my life insurance policy would take care of my kids when I was gone. If only God would help me out and stop my heart.
"Why won't you just do it, Lord? Why won't you just let me go, right here, right now? Why have you deserted me."
Alexa, my medical assistant, had come in, placing her gentle hand on my shoulder. "Your next patient is ready." I put on my professional smile, knocked, then opened the door, and saw her. An older lady, African American, was sitting there tapping her foot and nodding her head as if she was listening to some music only she could hear.
"Hi, I am Dr. Libellule. Please tell me when you last were able to do any type of employed work."
She turned to me — what kind eyes she has I thought — then she said, "Honey, you're not here for me. I'm here for you." For a moment my heart fell, and then — was she crazy? Then she continued, and as she spoke, I felt the hairs on the back of my neck rise.
"I have a message for you from God. You can choose to accept it or refuse it, but the choice is yours."
This is a true story of the power of faith in the face of adversity and how God is with us, speaking to us in many ways if we only open our eyes and hearts to hear him.
This is a non-fiction book detailing a personal transformation. You could even call it a self-help book. I hope that people get inspiration and hope from reading it, especially if they are dealing with a very difficult situation that seems almost hopeless. This spiritual book is available from Amazon and other booksellers.
