"These are the plans for Julia." Almighty handed Michael a folder with information regarding the girl. The angel bowed slightly and opened it. As he read, however, a shadow passed over his face. He looked up.
"That's going to be a hard thing for her to give up. Do You think she'll be able to do it? Will her faith hold out?"
Almighty smiled. "Yes."
"I'm sure glad You think so," Michael quipped. He bowed again and then left Almighty's presence to do His bidding.
Allowing hardships in the lives of His children was difficult for Almighty to do and it brought tears to His eyes as He watched the girl struggle with her circumstances.
Finally, feeling defeated and dejected, she came before the throne of grace where she knew she would find help in her time of need.
It was certainly not a party, but Michael and some of the other angels gathered silently around Almighty to listen as the girl poured her heart out. She ended by saying, "Father, I give it to You."
"She did it!" Michael yelled. He let out a whoop and the other angels cheered excitedly.
At that moment, Michael caught Almighty's eye. He said, "You were right; You knew she would do it. Why?"
Almighty smiled. "I know I can trust her to do My will because she has a trustworthy heart."
