Daniel 3:16-18 New Living Translation
16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, "O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. 18 But even if he doesn't, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up."
The verses from Daniel 3:16-18 in the New Living Translation tell me that God is with me through the good and the bad. He never deserts or betrays me.
Whatever is God's will for my life is a MUCH better life than living without being in God's will. I lost my husband (age 25), a son (age 15), both parents, and all grandparents before I turned 47 years old. But, I know through all of the losses, the heartache, the questions and the grief, God is holding my hand. Somehow--I don't know how--He has a plan for my life.
