This was very well written - I was completely engaged. What a great example Daniel is. Thanks for sharing!
Excellent! I loved this.

God bless~
This is a powerful story. I'd love to have read even more about this brave man. Though your second part was good too, it needed more of a transition. It almost felt like you had two separate distinct stories. After reading it a couple of times, I discovered the man was Daniel all along. I think I was partially confused by the date at the top. I thought that was the date your story was taking place, not when you wrote it. The date you submit the piece will be included in your profile so you don't need to put it in the body of the story. Once I realized it was Daniel, it flowed much better for me. I could just be slow and perhaps everyone else understood it right away. You did a great job of writing on topic and a nice job of retelling the story.
I absolutely loved this. Two timeless truths popped out as I read: 1) The evidence of faith is rest, and 2)Faith always wins God's approval.
(Trying to win man's approval is man's strategy - no rest there.)
Great ending too, when all is tied together with a spiritual moral.
The date at the top threw me too. Once I understood what was going on, I thoroughly enjoyed this. Daniel is such a great example. I'm so glad
God chose to include his stories. Thanks for all your hard work, and best of luck in the Challenge!
