TRUST #9: He Never Leaves Us Nor Forsakes Us (Daneille Snowden's Story)

Today's TRUST story is from my friend, Daneille Snowden. Her family is currently raising support to serve in Mozambique, Africa, in a much-needed pastoral support ministry among the pastors, students, and missionaries of that area. Please visit their BLOG PAGE for more information, or to make a donation. 

Thank you, Daneille, for sharing this encouraging story about how God never leaves or forsakes His children.
When I was almost 21 years old - between, my junior and senior year of college - I became an intern to India. I had felt the call into Missions since I was 12, and this was my big opportunity to begin this new walk with Christ.
In that summer of 1987, when my flight arrived late to Bombay (today called Mumbai) I only had a few minutes to drive across this large city to board a domestic flight to Kolkata. Literally, there were hundreds of people in front of me going through customs. I was surrounded by Indians, Arabians, and even Chinese; finding myself the only American around.
Out of panic, my heart cried out to the Lord for help. God‘s response was: I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” (Hebrews 13:5b KJV)
I simply surrendered my plight (& flight) to the Lord. INSTANTLY, the customs agent pointed to me and said, “You... next!” I answered with a question, “Who me?” Of course he said, “Yes!” I was, then, whisked through customs and stuffed into a bus load of people (and real chickens) and transported across the city. I made it just in time! Wow! JUST IN TIME! Isn’t that just like our God. 

Why is it that our needs are sometimes met "just in time?" Maybe because He wants to remind us of how “He never leaves nor forsakes us!”
