… if only she had listened...
After a near fatal accident in the Colorado wilderness, Jasmine Moore can no longer endure the harsh Steamboat Springs winters. Unable to get out much because of pain, she goes online in hopes of finding some new friends to fill the void the long, lonely winters bring. A budding friendship develops, and soon, Jasmine finds herself in danger.
Jack Warren is in love with Jasmine and has been for years. When he discovers she’s talking to strangers on the Internet, a pit fills his stomach, signaling something’s not right about one particular person. Can he convince her to give up her budding friendship before it’s too late? Will she ever come to love him as more than just a friend?
Forewarned is a warning to people to heed God's voice when they are tempted to do things that could lead to harm. Jasmine in all of her gullibility truly believed she was immune to internet predators. She's also very accident prone (poor thing.) Living alone didn't make her any safer either. Her best friend Jack is there for her but she fails to see that his concern for her runs much deeper than friendship ... at first.
Through various events that pull them apart and then push them back into each other's arms, they discover things about their relationship that take it to another level. Jazzy is a bit stubborn (that's putting it mildly) and confused about what she wants in life. Jack is more sure of what he wants, but neither of them like to take risks. It's only when things escalate that Jazzy allows Jack to intervene.
Anyway, this story is suspenseful and it's also a warning to heed that still, small voice that niggles you when you are making a choice that will lead to your eventual destruction. The Lord knows what will help us and what will harm us. We need to trust His wisdom. God's voice doesn't beckon us to limit our fun in life, but to protect us ... if only we would listen.
Forewarned was published by Spirit Light Publishing and was released in Sept. 2012.
Now for the question... Has there been a time when you heeded God's still, small voice and then later found out if you had ignored His prompting something bad would have happened? A winner will be chosen next Sunday using "the hat" randomizer program.
