The Lion sleeps tonight....

Yesterday, I spoke with three different women, ( four if you count the conversation I had with myself ) all in varying stages of their lives and all at perplexing times in their lives. Sometimes we all struggle to understand "the happenings" of our lives and we don't see God working in it because "the happening" seems so big and strong and mighty. We forget who is really so big and strong and so mighty. We may look at the problems of others and think "You'll be fine" "Don't worry" and they may look at our problems and think the very same thought but when you are in the Lion's Den, the Lion is very real indeed. But God protected Daniel from the Lions as he protects us even now and there was a purpose to Daniel's evening with the Lions as there is for us. I love all three of you and I see God working in your lives everyday as I hope He works in mine...
"For he is the living God
and he endures forever;
his kingdom will not be destroyed,
and his dominion will never end.
He rescues and he saves;
he performs signs and wonders
in the heaven and on the earth.
He has rescued Daniel
from the power of the lions."
Daniel 6:26-27
