Wounded Love

A Wounded Warrior Story

by Tori Hines

Wounded Love

Teacher Jaime Kane returned home following her recent divorce to help her mother move to her pregnant sister’s house following the passing of her beloved father. Unable to play golf due to a yet unhealed left wrist injury from a car accident, she sought to get her niece and friends involved in tennis. However, the only one who remained was Mia, a twelve-year-old Hispanic girl, who was living with her aunt’s family while her dad was deployed overseas. Yet, when possible abuse came to be known, Jaime offered to keep Mia until her dad was discharged at the end of the summer. Unfortunately, while on a secret mission, her dad was injured in a roadside bomb that delayed his return.

In the meantime, Jaime through communication with Joe, discovered they had much in common despite her sister’s attempt to set her up with another. With so many changes, she had many complicated decisions to make regarding her future until she decided to ‘let go and let God’. Somehow, upon offering it up, she could only hope the right answer would come to her.









COMING WITH THE CLOUDS, A JOURNEY THROUGH PROPHECY,” explores the scriptures seeking the true meaning of Old and New Testament Bible prophecy. When it comes to what is believed about Bible prophecy, there are many different viewpoints to consider. All prophecy centers around Jesus, His kingdom, and His rule. The study of all prophecy must be Christ centered.

As you read this book, you will gain true insight and understanding of the following:

  • Prophecies of Isaiah
  • Prophecies of Ezekiel
  • Prophecies of Daniel
  • Prophecies of the Gospels
  • Prophecies of Revelation

You will learn the true meaning of Bible prophecy as understood by the Jewish people of the day. We must be able to understand history through the lens of the times in which they were written, not just how they are relevant in today’s news. It is vastly important that we understand Jewish culture, language, customs, and history, as well as the meaning of words or phrases in that time so we can understand the true meaning of the prophecies that were written. Without this understanding we are reading terms outside of their true meaning and can become confused on what the words of scripture are trying to reveal. Prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:20-21). God made it clear only He can appoint and predict future events.

As we examine the Bible, we can learn what God is teaching His people. We must be careful not to interpret newspaper theology as Bible prophecy every time we witness a new war, earthquake, or every sin our society indulges in. If we take every news event today as Bible prophecy teaching, we reduce the Holy Scriptures to the level of the weekly tabloids.

Studying Bible prophecy and understanding the times we live in is one of the most encouraging and faith-building adventures we can take. Bible prophecy gives us hope and keeps us anticipating the Lord’s return.

I invite you to join me in this journey through Bible prophecy. Together we will come away with a clear understanding of what Bible prophecy is all about. We will come away with a positive view of the end-times and with a greater hope for our future.

When discussing His second coming, Jesus himself said no one knows the time, only the Father knows. It is not up to us to discover the time.

It is up to us to be ready
