Elder Ingrid Providence, DKA


 

I grew up in the Seventh-day Adventist church, and participated in church things, because I was expected to.  But guess what, I soon came to enjoy it.  Sabbath School lessons were wonderful, and I soon came to want to be just like Daniel, and brave queen Esther, and Joseph, and so many of my childhood bible characters.  The Sabbath School lessons told me clearly, that Jesus loves me, and that he will always see me through, no matter how grim the situation appeared.  And so began my Christian walk, and the foundation for my belief, that stands strong, even today.  This Christian walk that allows me to continue to seek the silver lining behind every cloud; that allows me to pray my way through adversity, knowing that God is listening to my cry, and will step in when I least expect him to; that reminds me that I should not, can not, depend on myself; that the battle is the Lord’s, and that, like David, he will always deliver me………
