Dear God, Bring Me a Vision

by | Sep 18, 2018 | Book Review | 12 comments

My years of counseling women revealed an amazing paradox. Pain can be channeled into resolve that rescues and protects others. Bring Me a Vision tells the story of a woman who directed her brokenness into strength and has rescued hundreds of women and children from sex trafficking.

I met the book’s author and fellow blogger, Pam Ecrement, online. Even though we’ve never connected in person, I consider her a friend. We’ve prayed and kept in touch via phone calls, emails and texts.

Pam said the chapter on Rahab from my book Little Women, Big God prompted her to tell the story of her former client and friend, Becky Moreland. Becky is the founder of a ministry called RAHAB, which stands for Reaching Above Hopelessness and Brokenness.

Bring Me a Vision begins with Becky’s birth into a self-absorbed, struggling family and takes us through the beginning of the RAHAB ministry to the present. Becky’s early years reminded me of a Charles Dickens’ book. Walking through pain without the comfort of the Lord is dark and lonely.

Becky met Pam when she summoned the courage to go for counseling. Pam’s unconditional love and support softened Becky’s heart to dare to develop a relationship with Jesus.

Transformation Prompts Vision

Transformation isn’t instant. But when we have the Lord to lead and comfort us we have hope. It took years for Becky to be completely delivered from the neglect she’d carried from her own childhood and passed on to her children. But it happened. Along the way Becky was transformed from a victim to a lifeline for other women.

Knowing our heavenly Father loves us completely reworks our brokenness into motivation to help others caught in the web of lies and pain we’ve known. Becky’s story shows the power of God’s grace to transform a life surrendered to Him. Only God can restore the years the locusts have eaten in ways that exceed our imagination (Joel 2:25; Ephes. 3:20-21).

Today, Becky and her team run a thriving ministry that cares for and trains women and children who’ve been rescued from the streets. The perseverance and drive that brought this ministry to where it is now remind us to offer our own losses and weaknesses to God for His glory.

I love happy endings. God brought all of Becky’s children to faith in Him and restored this family. Some of them play key roles in RAHAB today.

Pain can cripple us or corral us into an astonishing role in God’s redemptive story. How might God use your pain for His glory? Ask Him to bring you a vision.

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up” (Gal. 6:9 NIV).

Any profit after expenses goes to Rahab Ministries, reaching hundreds of women each month caught in the web of human trafficking.

Question: Where have you seen ministry flow from adversity?

Meet Pam Ecrement

Pam Ecrement is a retired clinical counselor who was involved in ministry for more than 25 years. Retirement opened the opportunity for her to step into her love of writing. That began with creating her website, A New Lens, in 2015. When the Lord put this book on her heart, it challenged her to step out to risk a vision of her own to write a book. This book is very personal for Pam as she shares this powerful testimony of a woman she has known and loved for more than 20 years. Her love of the Lord, time with her husband of 54 years, two married children, and six grandchildren are central. When she is not with them or writing, she loves photography, reading, traveling, music, and movies.

  1. Pam Ecrement

    Thanks so much for sharing this gracious review, Debbie. God’s pursuing love for any one of us is only the beginning of the plans He has for us once we turn and fall into his arms and discover we need not run any more. You have blessed me greatly in this, my friend!❤️

    • Debbie Wilson

      Pam, I’m thankful you persevered and are spreading the message of hope and God’s redeeming love! Blessings to you!

  2. Melissa Henderson

    I have seen a wonderful ministry in our area grow for people needing spiritual, mental and physical help. A local man started a ministry to help children who need school clothes and supplies. He decided to start the ministry after volunteering at an elementary school and witnessing first hand the need. I am thankful for the ability to help whenever I can. We never know when our love for God will shine through to someone else. 🙂

    • Debbie Wilson

      Melissa, what a precious ministry. May the children touched remember this man’s love and see God through him.

  3. Michele Morin

    I’m reading Pam’s book, and loving her counselor’s perspective, so I appreciate your take on this book as well, Debbie. It’s so great to enjoy books in community!

    • Debbie Wilson

      Michele, I agree. I look forward to reading your thoughts. I enjoyed Pam’s insights in the book too.

  4. Ann Musico

    I think most truly life changing ministry is birthed in adversity. I have grown and learned more from the difficult times in my life than from the happy times.

    • Debbie Wilson

      Ann, I have too. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Jacqueline Wallace

    I love that you are sharing this book. It reminds me of my sister in law, Michele Rickett, who has a similar story to Becky’s. Today she heads an organization she founded called She Is Safe (, which partners with indigenous ministries across the world to “prevent, rescue, and restore” women and girls in the least reached places of the world. God is a God of redemption! In my own life, I have had many women who know me or have read my book (Brokenness to Beauty) comment on how my life/writing has encouraged them as they go through their own struggles. God can use the hard things in our lives to bring hope and strength to others if we allow him to.

    • Debbie Wilson

      Jacque, He certainly has used your story to bring hope and healing to others. Thanks so much for telling us about this wonderful sounding ministry.

  6. Karen Friday

    Pam, this is so beautiful and powerful. The Lord has me walking through the memories of the dark crevices of my own story as I’m writing a book about abandonment, both physically and emotionally as a child. I’m only revisiting those places to process and heal so that I can move forward and help the reader do the same.

    Love this, “Knowing our heavenly Father loves us completely reworks our brokenness into motivation to help others caught in the web of lies and pain we’ve known. Becky’s story shows the power of God’s grace to transform a life surrendered to Him.”

    I pray favor and continued anointing over RAHAB Ministries.

    • Debbie Wilson

      Karen, I’m glad this resonated with you. It’s always helpful to find others to share our journey. May the Lord bless you on yours!
