Ramadan: Persecuted But Not Abandoned

Bisma_3Bisma is a beautiful young girl who is searching for Truth.  She is studying engineering at a local university, has high hopes for the future, and contrary to the norm, is not being pushed by her family to marry.  Her father died when she was only a few months old and her brother has left many decisions up to her and her mother.  Because of this, she has much more freedom than most girls. However, she lives in much fear.

Bisma is afraid every day when she goes to school; she is afraid of being kidnapped, shot or near an exploding bomb. She is also very concerned about the future. Will studying even pay off with a job when she graduates?  When she is ready, will she be able to find someone to marry?  Will he be kind to her? So many questions and so few answers.

 

Deuteronomy 31:8
8  The LORD is the One who will go before you. He will be with you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not be afraid or discouraged.”

Bisma is also different from most girls because she has a Bible and loves reading it. Her mother and sister both know she reads; her mother even joins her sometimes. She has said that she wants to know which path is right. When she is afraid, she reads her Bible and has peace. In the past, she struggled with nightmares, but after a Follower of Issa’al Massiah prayed with her in the name of Jesus, the nightmares stopped!  She loves reading about Jesus, his life and the miracles He did; but she is not yet willing to say that He is more than a prophet or that He is the only way to God.

Hebrews 13:5-6
5  Your life should be free from the love of money. Be satisfied with what you have, for He Himself has said, I will never leave you or forsake you.
6  Therefore, we may boldly say: The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
