The message that saved my life

Originally appeared online in the teen series: Your Healings - January 15, 2019

Have you ever heard God’s voice? As a kid, I had listened to Bible stories about God speaking to people, especially if they were in danger or just needed help. Whatever they heard from God gave them direction and kept them safe. I liked those stories, but I never expected that to happen to me. Then, one sunny Sunday afternoon, it did. 

My family and I were going to the Sunday market that opened every four weeks. After church and Sunday School, we planned to grab a bite to eat at the market, then head home. Our church and the market were separated by a busy four-lane road, and we had to cross all four lanes to get to the shops. 

Usually when we crossed the street, my dad would hold my hand and my sister’s. But that day I was extra excited to get to the market and wanted to go fast across the road on my own.
