Example One

Daniel – dealing with Medes, Persians, lions in hungry moods, friends in fiery furnaces, being sold into slavery, eating only water and vegetables, advising kings, being visited by angels, praying with the window open, visions of various apocalypses, fearing for his life, generally not getting much sleep. God sends an angel who tells him

‘Don’t be afraid, friend. Peace. Everything is going to be all right. Take courage. Be strong.’

Example Two

Nearly Martha – dealing with running out of dog food, spending too much time on Youtube, losing plug to bath and having to bathe with Pugplug (above), cancellation of three yearly mammogram because machine is broken, getting house visitor ready, not getting Liam’s dollars to him in time for his New York jolly, fat hips not responding to virtual starvation diet, dog going all Stephen King at the window. God shows her something in the Bible that says.

‘Don’t be afraid, friend. Peace. Everything is going to be all right. Take courage. Be strong.’

The Message of God to us – Timeless.

    Example three – my plan to arrange wedding flowers at 10am Friday thwarted by funeral in the chapel – only time is between 4&6pm to do it all. Mislaid a £50 m&s voucher somewhere in my chaotically untidy house. Job applications all coming to nothing. Cannot work out how to fit all stuff in cars to get it to leicester for wedding – particularly how to do safe transportation of the Cake. cannot lose the half stone put on since purchase of MumofBride dress…friend reminds her of bible verses which say"Don't be afraid…." Thanks my friend!!
