Helping a Woman (3)

Today’s Bible verses are a sad story with a happy ending. While Jesus was traveling, He saw “some people carrying a dead body. It was the only son of a woman who was a widow” (verse 12b).
This was a terrible situation for the widow. First, her husband died, and now her son died, too. This woman did not have anyone to support her or take care of her. Jesus felt sorry for the woman and told her not to cry. Then in verse 14 Jesus said, “Young man, I tell you, get up!” The boy was alive again. He sat up and started talking.
When my husband died suddenly, I did not know how I would live. I asked God to help me. Soon many people brought me money and food and helped me with paperwork and things that needed to be done around my house.
Just like the widow, I was so thankful for God’s help and protection. No matter what you are facing today, you can turn to God. He will always love you and help you!
