It was supposed to be a day of sorrow and weeping, a day of great lamentation because we were saying final farewell to our dad (who had survived our mum’s passing 11 years ago). But on that day (April 8, 2016), the Great Comforter mysteriously put joy in our hearts, a smile on our lips and a spring in our steps.

Also, in consonance with His name as Jehovah Jireh, God provided for us in these lean times. Although the prevailing inflationary trends made nonsense of our budget, He took up the slack and saved us from anxiety.

On the issue of safety, Jehovah Nissi was indeed our banner: shielding, protecting and confounding contrary imaginations and machinations. He gave coverage to us and our guests and granted everyone journey mercies back to their destinations.

There is so much more that I could share but I use the foregoing to represent the multitude of God’s mercies and favours towards my family and I. It is true what the Scriptures say that He lightens the faces of they that trust in Him and answers when they call.

My prayer is that the Lord will also come through for you in your time of need: that He will keep grief far from you and your family and wipe your tears speedily when it is inevitable and He will be your El Shaddai always (the God who is more than enough) as He has been to us. May your life constantly show evidence of the goodness and faithfulness of Jehovah all your days in Jesus’ name.
