Always Be Happy

I was born in New Zealand. My family always went to church. One day my mother asked our pastor to pray that I would have an interpreter for church. Then I could understand the things the pastor taught.
Soon after that, I had a dream. In my dream, God told me to go to Australia to meet deaf Christians there. I was able to go to Australia. I only planned to stay a few months, but now I have been here for 23 years.
I am so thankful that God led me here where I can learn with other deaf Christians. Verse 1 of our Bible Reading says, ?The Lord is my shepherd. I will always have everything I need.? Truly God has given me everything I need.
My favorite Bible verse is Philippians 4:4: ?Always be happy in the Lord. I will say it again. Be happy.? I can be happy in the Lord because He takes care of me.
Always remember that God takes care of you like a shepherd takes care of his sheep. And be happy because God loves you.
