There has been a shift in my praying focus since last year: thanking God and praying for the better things – which is for God’s guidance to bring up my son rooted in His truth and Word and the strength to entrust my precious son to God to lead him.
Thereafter, in my ‘usual’ Saturday morning dates with Jesus (on top of my daily quiet time) - where I would spend a couple of hours studying the Word, I felt a prompting to repeatedly read the verses of God speaking to Hagar. He said to her, “Do not be afraid… Lift the boy up and take him by the hand, for I will make him into a great nation.”
God in His divine knowledge knew that I needed that affirmation. Amidst the storms, He protects, heals and comfort. How great God is and how spending time in the Word brings true joy.- Amanda Ang, 47
