Testimony to God’s Goodness
On the 6 th of October I went to a Winning Women Worldwide Conference with a few friends. We had a great day of fun, fellowship and teaching. When we arrived we were all given a small candle with a coloured ribbon wrapped around it and a little label that read “Darkness into Light”
During the day I felt the Holy Spirit speak to me about giving my candle to someone else.
I have a friend who works in a hospice and we had been praying for a couple (who I have never met). The husband has cancer and was given some devastating news a few days before we attended the conference; he had weeks to live. They had just recently booked a family holiday and so desperately wanted to have this time together. He was told that this would not happen because of some difficulty he was experiencing physically.
I felt that God wanted me to give the candle to this couple, but I didn’t want to put any added stress on my friend who already has a very difficult job. My friend shares her faith with patients as much as possible, but is always aware that you need to be sensitive in these situations.
