A few weeks ago, my life was extra busy. I was working seven days a week including late into the nights. I didn’t have any spare time for God. Do you know how God got my attention? I’m going to share my story about a painful tooth infection that changed the direction of my life.
For a long time I thought God was punishing me. Why did I have to go through this? Did I do something wrong? Or do you just not love me? I need answers because I can’t take this anymore.
These are the kind of thoughts that would flash through my mind, day in and day out. And they still do.
If God has a plan for your life, death cannot snatch you away. Marian Adejokun, a teenager from Croydon, can testify to that.
In January 2011, on her way home from college, Marian developed severe pain in her eyes. She used eye drops from the chemist to ease the pain. Instead of relief, she ended up in intensive care at the Royal London Hospital for more than three weeks. Her skin peeled off, and blisters covered her from head to toe. She almost died.
