Long time ago in a village called Nigelin in Zimbabwe lived a women who was barren . Her name was Grace which means favor . All Grace ever wanted was to become a mother , she prayed to God day and night but nothing happened.
One day a strange woman appeared at Grace's house carrying a white baby girl ,then she placed the baby at her door .Grace heard a knock and went to check who it was at the door , she could not belive what she saw . A cute baby girl at her door ,she looked around if the parent was still there but no one was there . She then took the baby inside the house . Luckily she had some baby cloths to dress the baby, all she did was to thank the Lord for answering her prayer . She did not care about the skin color the baby was . All she ever wanted was a baby to raise . She named the baby Joyful because she brought joy to her . Fourteen years passed and Joyful grew up this beautiful , independent and brave young girl . She was taught to love the Lord and never give up no matter what .
Unfortunately a terrible accident happened to her when she was on her way home . Joyful was raped and cut off her right leg by a gang . Who wanted to use her body part as money ritual , luckily she survived all thanks to an old man who saw her bleeding in the bushes and took her to the hospital . When Joyful' s mother heard about what happened to her daughter she quickly rushed to the hospital that Joyful was in . After a few days Joyful was able to see and hear . Joyful' s mother knew she had to stay strong for her daughter so all she said was that , "They can rape , cut off your body parts and feed you poison but if God wants you to fulfill your destiny they can never kill you my child . In life we face challenges instead of crying we think about how we going to face these challenges .My child what happened to was bad and no one deserves it . I will always be with you. "
Joyful thought about the words her mother said and thanked God that she is still alive .Two months later Joyful came out of the hospital in a wheelchair instead of her crying she and her mother prayed for who ever did this to her must confess their sins . After a week a group of men had this disease where they would develop pimples painful , swollen and pus coming out . No one knew what was happening and eventually the confessed everything they did to Joyful and died after that . Joyful was angry but forgave the men who raped her.
Forty years passed and Joyful became a successful doctor who wanted to help those in need . She would donate to charity and help children in the streets . She became a well known doctor and died at the age of ninety years .
