Value- Truth

Sub value- Faith

A girl went to her friend’s house and she ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. Though night was falling, she wasn’t afraid because it was a small community and she lived only a few blocks away.

As she walked along under the bike trail, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger. When she reached the dark and lonely alley, which was a shortcut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her. She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God’s protection.

Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her, she felt as though someone was walking with her. When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.

The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been raped in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there.Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station.

She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story. The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a line-up to see if she could identify him.

She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before. When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed.

The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one question.

Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her.

When the policeman asked him, he answered, ‘Because she wasn’t alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her.’

 

Learning

Faith can move mountains. If we have the strong faith that God is always with us, He will indeed protect us. He will never leave us alone. He is always within us and gives us the inner strength. We should pray God to give us this inner strength whenever we are faced with trials and tribulations in life. The strong belief and faith can save us from various calamities.
