Like this character in this story, so many of us are actually like her. And how I wish we knew! We worry and weep about lots of things more. I hope it transforms your life and boosts your faith.

The sudden death of Anna's parents caused the downfall of a deeply religious girl, Anna. She became so worried with life troubles that she forgot all about church. She was ever up and down looking for survival. She abandoned God. She thought she was all by herself. She became a prostitute only to earn a living. Her situation and status drew her far from God. After many years of suffering, Anna's life got filled with sorrow. She felt so fed up of life. She saw no purpose of living. She bought poison. She drank it and passed away. Immediately after her soul left the body, she found herself in the lake of fire and sulphur. While there, she wept. She cried out to God to save her. " Why do you call me to save you now yet you did not call me to save you while on earth? " a voice spoke to her. Anna wept more. She asked God to forgive her. The fire was hotter than the suffering she faced while on earth. At last, God granted her a second chance. She told her to go back on earth and warn His people. He told her to tell them, " Call onto me in times of trouble and I will save you. Be patient and wait onto the Lord!" Anna came back and became devoted to serving God. She made it clear to children of God that no situation should drive them far from the father. Moral lesson: Do not turn away from God because the situation is tough. That hard time is temporal but God is for ever. Be blessed.
