He will Never Leave you….
102 years ago, April 1912, in Scotland, the Clark family had a dream like many other Europeans. Clark and his wife worked and saved, making plans for their nine children and themselves to travel to the ‘Land of Opportunities’ – USA and settle there permanently. It had taken years, but they had finally saved enough money and had gotten passports and reservations for the whole family on a new ship to the US.
The entire family was filled with anticipation and excitement about their new life. However, 7 days before their departure, the youngest son was bitten by a dog. The doctor sewed up the little boy but hung a yellow sheet on the Clarks’ front door. Because of the possibility of rabies, they were being quarantined for 14 days.
The family’s dreams were dashed. They would not be able to make the trip to America as they had planned. The father, filled with disappointment and anger, stomped to the dock to watch the ship leave–without the Clark family. The father shed tears of disappointment and cursed both his son and God for their misfortune.
Five days later, the tragic news spread throughout Scotland–the mighty “TITANIC” had sunk after clashed with huge iceberg. The ‘unsinkable’ ship had sunk, taking 1500 of lives with it. The Clark family was to have been on that ship, but because the son had been bitten by a dog, they were left behind in Scotland.
When Mr. Clark heard the news, he hugged his son and thanked him for saving the family. He thanked Jesus for saving their lives and turning what he had felt a tragedy into a blessing(from Heaven).
No matter how deep your trouble is, God never forsake you(his Children)
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble-Psalm 46:1
