A young woman experiences the loss of her mother, and the pain of being estranged from the only daddy that she knew. This young lady's world seemed all so dark. In spite of the darkness, she began to move forward, marrying at an early age, to the gentleman who won her heart. Very early in the marriage, her only son then grew suddenly very ill, and was diagnosed with meningitis. In spite of the darkness that seemed to be closing in around her, she kept holding on to hope, praying consistently to her Abba Father.
Things kept on getting worse. Her second child was diagnosed with a deformity, and the third child suffered from seizures. The fourth child! It seemed almost unbearable, for the young woman to see her youngest child not being able to function. What a harsh blow, but in spite of the darkness she continues to seek God and to pray. What is so wonderful, this young woman learnt to praise and to be thankful in spite of the darkness. Yes, there were times when the darkness seemed too much, and she felt like giving up. Instead she fasted and prayed, she kept on studing the word.
Something unusual happened very early one morning, her son that suffered from seizures experienced a severe seizure while asleep. Having him in her bed was very fortunate, she was able to assist him to some degree before the ambulance arrived. At this point the young lady began to fall apart. It seemed to her that God was too far away, and that it was just more than she could bear. She was giving up, hope was fading. Just then at that very moment, the young woman felt a strong hand on her shoulders. She heard a comforting voice saying to her " My Grace is sufficient for you, I am holding you up, I will carry you through."
The young woman's tears stopped and immediately she felt a renewed strength and courage to go on. Yes God who felt so far away is present with her, and her hope returned.
