When I had just come to know Jesus, my dad and I started fighting because I was going to church so often and wouldn’t take part in certain activities anymore. My father accused me of changing completely and said that I must ‘come right’.

I was severely tested and one night, randomly, a friend said that God had laid this scripture on his heart to give to me. It was James 1v2-5 and v12-13. I was shocked when I read it because my friend had had no idea of what I was going through. It was God’s little way of saying ‘Don’t worry, I’m going to carry you through this, I got you’
