Seeing Zeke’s determination in overcoming an obstacle helped June find the courage to face her uncertain future. Instead of running from the changes the telegram brought, she chose to search the Scriptures more with Susanna for answers.
“For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.”
—John 3:20, 21 KJV

“Are not Abana and Pharpar, rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? may I not wash in them, and be clean? So he turned and went away in a rage.
And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean?”
—2 Kings 5:12, 13 KJV
