Thank God that this is true. How many times have I leaned on the Word of God to give me strength because I didn't think I could do all the things that I needed to. Being a mother of four, serving God in whatever capacity He has given me, and keeping our house and my husband moving forward has been a full time job for me.
I know some of you have done this, plus worked a full time job and that is a monumental task! You need the grace God much more than I do, God bless you! He sees it all and nothing is forgotten or missed by Him. He understands when no one else does. He is the giver of grace, strength and peace, even when you don't feel like He is there. He promises to never leave us or forsake us, because He is in dwelling, for all who call Him Savior and Lord.
"Trust in the Lord forever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength." Isaiah 26:4
My younger daughter Stephanie is a quiet girl of 15, but as most girls her age she can get rather emotional, to put in lightly. One night, she came out of her room, and I could tell from downstairs that she was hysterically crying. I remember saying to myself, oh, she is really upset, but I waited because I thought, maybe I'm wrong. She would get upset, if I asked her if she was upset, because that is the way girls are! She came running down the stairs and had to catch her breath before she could tell me what happened.
A boy who left her school called to say he was going to bring his gun to school and shot her and everyone else. I was shocked, and called the police right away. I got her to calm down, but I was feeling as if this was surreal. Soon after a friend calls to say that he thought she would have recognized his voice and that he made the call. He was only joking. The police were not convinced. They came to our house to talk to Stephanie, and also spoke to this young man. His parents assured the officer that this would not happen again.
What do you do with this kind of thing! I didn't panic, but I did call the school to alert them as to what went on. Thankfully it was just a prank, but one that none of us will forget for a long time. I knew that God was faithful through it all, I just wasn't sure how it would play out. What a relief, but my emotions went for a ride! You never know what a day may bring! I don't want any more days that bring the police to my door, Thank you Lord!
