If she hadn’t been there, Naaman would never have gone to Elisha for help, and would not have been healed.In reflecting on the difficult and challenging times, can  we say like Joseph that God meant it for good” “ ( Gen 50:20) I hope we can take comfort from the testimony of scripture,

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 Continue reading
