Lessons from Nehemiah

Posted by Diana Ainebyoona on

Over the last few weeks I have been reading the book of Nehemiah. I had probably never read it in its entirety and only read portions of it. The character of Nehemiah has really stood out for me.

He heard about the suffering of the Jews back home in Jerusalem and it affected him so much that he fasted and prayed, crying out to the living God for help.

You probably started the year 2022 with high hopes and dreams of what you will get done. Or maybe after the COVID 19 pandemic you are not too quick to make big plans. Either way, maybe things are going as you expected or maybe not. Whatever the case, time moves on and so must we. So now what… Rejoice always (Philippians 4:4). The word of God tells us to be joyful.
