This year has been a trying year for me but through Jesus’ loving
kindness, it has ended up also being one of my most rewarding years.

On April 4th 2016, I received some news that was devastating to me. I went
home that day and opened by bible and God led my hands and eyes to the
story of Daniel in the lion’s den (Daniel Chapter 6). My favourite verse of
the bible has become Daniel 6:22 - "My God hath sent his angel and has shut
the Lions' mouths that they have not hurt me."

I knew that God was present and I just had to have faith. The story of Daniel resonated eerily similar
to what I was going through. The devil will use people to attempt to steal
your joy but the favour of the Lord will prevail. On June 22nd, his
promises came to light. With my renewed faith, I feel honoured to be doing
God’s work in the community.

Some of the lyrics from my favourite hymn “This is my story”. This is my song. Praising my saviour all the day” - summarizes my feelings of his mercy in my life.

Stachen, thank you so much for this timely reminder:Daniel 6:22 - "My God hath sent his angel and has shut the Lions' mouths that they have not hurt me." I am once again awaiting for the Lord to shut the next lion's mouth. God bless you as this is the message that I needed to hear this week.

And Stachen -- how fine, gracious sharing from you. And that song is one of my favorites too. And If you have seen the filmTRIP TO BOUNTIFUL [either version], it is sung beautifully there. ]
