After six years as a slave, and now in his early 20s, Patrick had a dream one night that a boat would take him home. Patrick ran away from his slave owners and set out on an extremely dangerous journey as a run-away slave. He managed to reach the coast where he found a boat about to sail across the ocean, and convinced the owner to take him.
Through many dangers, Patrick finally made his way home to Britain. Imagine his family’s joy to have him home after feeling they might never see him again!
In harsh circumstances as a slave, young Patrick came to feel that God was _there_with_him_ . And in his escape, he saw that God “was _guiding_my_every_step for the best”.
Coffee/tea thought: Do you sense God’s personal care in your own life, now or in the past, guiding “every step for the best”?
