Rush of Heaven is written from a first person point of view, and is Ema McKinley’s true story of how her life was changed forever after an on the job accident that had consequences of unimaginable magnitude. This book is a testament and a testimony of one woman’s determination to never give up and a GOD who never let’s go of those who put there trust and hope in Him. Ema’s story is a Christmas Eve miracle that was eighteen years in the making.
I do want to add that I was impressed how well this book is written. You truly feel Ema’s personality come through and all my emotions were touched as I read Rush of Heaven.
I have read other non-fiction accounts of individual experiences and memoir’s and some I finished and some I did not. When I didn’t finish an individuals book regarding their personal experience it wasn’t because I wasn’t interested in what happened, it was because the writing was so bad, that it made it painful to slog through. That is not the case with Rush of Heaven. The writing flowed naturally, the pacing was perfect, and it was compulsively readable.
I read the following verse a couple of days after finishing Rush of Heaven and it was confirmation to me that it was Ema’s amazing love and concern for others, regardless if they were family, friend or stranger, she was aware of them and wanted them to feel loved. She held on to her joy despite unimaginable pain and suffering she was personally enduring, this was God enabling her and manifesting Himself to her and through her
I have seen this before, during the time my husband had cancer. He was always aware of other people’s pain and suffering, and telling me, we need to pray for this person, nurse or doctor, even while in an emergency room with a broken femur. It is amazing to me what a person can endure while their heart and eyes are not focused on their selves.
John 14:21, says,
He who has my commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves me and he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.
