This memoir is one of the new entries in the Debut Writers Journal, where many of my creative writing students have their works published. It is a wonderful testimony to God’s care and protection of His children, and I thought my readers here would enjoy it as well.
A STORM IN THE NIGHT
by Anne Herron
The most often used Hebrew word for “peace” in the Old Testament is one that means “safe, well, happy, prosperous, whole, complete.” When God gives us His own peace, He’s not talking about just helping us to calm down in the midst of bad situations, so that our heart beats at a normal rate and our stomach isn’t tied into knots. He’s talking about providing for all of our needs, at every level of our being. Don’t believe the Lord for only part of what you need. Believe Him for everything you need. “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.” (Psalm 103:2).
