Debbie Proves God's Power

[For children]

Debbie had had an interesting day at school. She and her classmates had worked on a special geography project, and she was anxious to tell her mother about it.

Turning down the driveway leading to her house, Debbie saw her little dog waiting for her. She was certain she would find Mother in the kitchen preparing dinner so it would be ready when Daddy came home from the office.

As Debbie bounded in the back door, however, she found that things were not as she had pictured they would be. Instead of the usual, happy mother, she found that her mother had severely burned her fingers while picking up a grill just after it had been taken from a very hot oven. She was in great pain. Debbie was frightened at first, for her mother's hands were so badly swollen that she could not open them. Quickly, though, her thought turned to God, and she knew that this material picture was not really true.
