  1. I had just got married and moved away from family. New life with my husband excited and scared at the same time. When we arrived to the house it was cute but, I didn’t know anyone except him and my daughter.
    As days past there were no people who looked like me. The children outside playing and running around with no shoes on babies outside with just a diaper, the men with no shirts on pale skinned. Let me say I came from Philly we did not come outside like this.
    Asking my husband do you have some black friends? He liked to surf and go to the beach mind you I could not swim and had never gone to the beach. He had been in the Navy and never moved back to Philly. His life was so different. I cried a many day what did I get myself into.
    Fast forward my first experience with hurricanes. Fearful for my life and people in the stores trying to get supplies and some speaking of hurricane parties. As things became more intense all I wanted was to go back to Philly frightened for my life. No flights were going out needless to say I didn’t even have the funds if I could have left. I remember getting my daughter and a blanket and hid in the closet and prayed to keep us safe with the scripture in Proverbs 3:5&6 “Trust in the Lord with all your and lean not to your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.” God did keep us but, when I went out in the backyard there had been a tree uprooted out of the ground. I remember saying and people are partying and not afraid.

  2. When I was being viciously attacked by my manager and coworker both of which were set to ruin my career and reputation. At first I was afraid and then I turned to God in prayer.

  3. To God be the glory for His peace and presence! I went through a difficult marriage where my life was threatened yet God covered me & kept me through it all.

  4. When my son was shot two times and I prayed my way through it for 25 long days. I had not ever trusted God with so much but every day he gave me peace and patience in my waiting.
