A modern day take on the story of Joseph. Josephine Jacobs was the youngest of seven girls and it was evident at an early age that God had a plan for her life. Shortly after receiving a word of affirmation during a Sunday service she was told that “she would be a leader among her peers”. Josephine soon learned that everyone wouldn’t be excited for her future success. A trip to a big city in celebration of being accepted into a prestigious college leads to a devastating loss for Josephine. Lost, feeling rejected and alone Josephine moves forward with her life, leaving behind her first name and the hurt that was associated with it, until a stranger comes to town and begins to trigger memories from her past. It had been twenty years since that fateful day and she didn’t want to remember it, but the word of God came back to her about being “a leader” that forced her to address her past. It was time for her to remember who she was and what she was called to do. Would she be able to trade those feelings of hurt, pain, anger and abandonment for forgiveness, healing, joy and restoration? Time could only tell.
