Have you ever had one of those moments when you just know that God is looking out for you? Like it's more and more realisitc to you than before? I've had a couple of them and they are my favorite moments. I like to call them...
For instance, today as my family and I were traveling back from NTLTC which is in Dallas, TX, we stopped in Decatur, TX to get a few things for our Easter celebration tomorrow. We were all kind of a little gripy because we were running low on sleep and trying to get things together for Easter last minute, so I guess you could say that we needed a wake-up call. Well, we got one.
While we were checking out in Wal-Mart, a person comes over the intercom and announces that there is a tornado that has touched down in Decatur and everyone needed to get to the middle of the store. As we preceeded to the middle of the store, I kept telling myself, "Don't freak out Cherish, every thing will be okay." But then I would doubt myself of course, because who am I? I didn't really know if everything would be okay. I then sat down on the ground and started praying, just asking God to keep us safe if it was His will and to comfort me. He definitely came through! After I prayed I started looking up verses on my "Phone Bible" about safety and reading those. Then, all of the sudden, the song "Safe" by Phil Wickham popped in my head. For those of you who don't know the song, in one line it says "You will be safe in His arms, You will be safe in His arms." Those few words kept repeating in my head and I was so calm.
After we got home, my mom commented on how calm I had been during all of the mess and I just replied "Thanks Mom, but it wasn't me who kept myself calm."
God kept me calm and safe and I am so greatful for that and the love He shows us.
