In His Hands
the unseen battles
of domestic violence
> An excerpt from the
first chapter <
Camael, the lead angel,
ruffled his feathers calling his angel team to gather around him
in the hall between the bathroom door and the stairway. It had
been a rough battle with the Demonics, unseen by Jacob and
Julia, and now it was time to regroup before the next attack.
This marriage was definitely in crisis! If his team was going to
save it, they were going to need to persuade Jacob back to the
Father and Julia was going to need much healing. As Juliaís
guardian angel, Camael felt personally responsible for her.
Hearing the muffled sobs
mixed with the sound of falling water from within the bathroom,
he glanced down the stairs leery of the demons lurking in the
dark. He then shifted his sights to his team. Only five of seven
were able to make it in time, which was unacceptable, especially
since they had a week to prepare!
Sophia, an ancient angel of
great wisdom and a master of disguise, had done an impressive
job over the past week speaking wisdom to Julia and nurturing
her. Although quiet in nature, Sophia is steadfast and can be
rather unrelenting at times. Unfortunately, even with undaunted
persistence, she always returned from the husband looking worn
and saddened that she was unable to reach him. Nevertheless,
Camael was glad to have her on the team. She skillfully proved
her abilities when she carefully presented Julia with the
computer already logged on to her hotmail account and then moved
the phone to a perfect position without alerting the Demonics.
Camael could not have been prouder of her today. He nodded his
praise and she pointed to Heaven.
Camael, however, had taken
the brunt of the battle against Aboddon, the great warrior under
Baal, since his other teammates were absent. Aboddon took
advantage and attacked with such force that Camael was not able
to help Julia when she went into the spare room. Although both
wings were broken, another angel was able to pull Julia down
before she landed on the exercise bike. He bravely shielded her
and did not flinch even when evil hairy Uzza drew his sword.
Camael had to abandon his fight with Aboddon to tackle Uzza,
giving the biggest angel on his team enough time to lift Julia
to her feet. If it had not been for the skills of his team,
Julia would not have made it through alive since Uzza was
determined to make good on his promise to end her life.
Camael slowly shook his head
as he looked over his battered team. The bathroom door began to
glow and they all grinned knowingly. The healing angel touched
him and he closed his eyes, soaking in the wonder of Godís great
medicine. She touched all their wounds healing them instantly.
Then she glanced at the bathroom door and stepped through
unimpeded. The door darkened and she returned frowning. The
water stopped. The light went out.
Camael did not need to sound
the alert since the five angels already had their swords drawn
and their restored wings up. The basement light went on
revealing the Demonics. Aboddon stood strong at the bottom of
the stairs with his chest exposed to display his scars from
previous battles, his long sword held outward like a gate
holding back fuming Uzza. Just the looks of him made Camael
shutter. It was no coincidence that two of his teammates were
not present, for Aboddon was a great strategist. It was going to
be a long night.
Julia stepped out of the
bathroom still holding her hand, towel wrapped around her body
and another around her wet hair. She stared down the stairs for
a moment and then leaned back against the wall. Everyone watched
her except Sophia, who jumped into action and comforted her,
whispering into her ear. Julia closed her eyes tight, pressing
tears from the corners. Softly, Sophia began to glow. Then the
healing angel, too, brightened ever so slightly as she touched
Juliaís shoulder. Julia straightened, taking a deep breath as
she walked into the kitchen towards the phone. Everyone held
their breath, waiting to see if she would call for help. As she
contemplated, they waited. A noise of something breaking
downstairs jolted her back away from the phone. She sighed and
whispered the word, Forgive. With a nod, Camael turned his focus
to the Demonicís leader, Aboddon, watching carefully as his
teammates urged Julia to the safety of the spare room for the
slashed his sword down through the air and Uzza rushed forward.
Before clashing swords with the mighty warrior, Camael spotted
the harassing demon dashing to the husband again. In the hall
they battled for the rest of the night.
