On Good Friday we remember Jesus, who died a criminal’s death because of false accusations. We think of his mother and all who had placed their hope in him, people who thought that lies had triumphed over truth, despair over hope, and death over life. It was not so, but they didn’t know it yet.
It is with that same sense of waiting for a turning point that we bring you Anusha Atukorala’s story ‘The Answer’ that was published in our 2019 anthology, Papa’s Shoes and other Stories of Life. Her story was also broadcast on 1079 Life and we hope that it will encouraged you, as it encouraged us.
Anusha has been on many interesting detours in life, as a lab technician, computer programmer, full time mum, charity director, and job chaser, until one golden day (or was it a dark moonless night?) God tapped her on her shoulder and called her to write for him. She has never recovered from the joy it brought her. She loves to see others enjoying life with Jesus and does her mite to hurry the process in her world through her writing and through her life. The goodness of God is her theme song through each season as she dances in the rain with Jesus.
Her first book Enjoying the Journey contains 75 short God stories while her second book Dancing in the Rain offers hope and comfort for life’s soggy seasons. The sequel, Sharing the Journey, was released recently on 21 March 2020. Anusha hopes that it will inspire you during this pandemic era to enjoy life with God and with each another. The journey of life is better with travel companions. The journey of life is rich and remarkable with a God who walks beside us. Sharing the Journey is a doorway to discovering a rich and fulfilling life.
