Ashley’s story is a reminder of how important it is for parents to speak the Word over their children - it impacts and transforms all lives. Ashley is a teenager now, however at age 6 when this took place, she knew without a doubt, she was being protected.
Every morning before school, my mum says to me, ‘remember, you’re blessed, highly favoured, and covered by the blood of the lamb.’
One day, at lunch, I was sitting down talking to friends with my back to the basketball court - where a group of kids were playing.
All of a sudden, I felt a force push my head down, at the same time a basketball was thrown directly where my head was, but completely avoided contact with me.
The friends that I was talking to were so surprised by this, they asked me how I knew that a basketball was aiming for my head (since I was not facing that direction).
I told Mum later that afternoon and we both praised God for his unending faithfulness.
For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone
“In my Father’s house are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14:2-3
