I got so angry this morning! I want to share
with you the feelings experienced earlier today..
that miserable thunder storm woke me up even
before daylight. I needed more rest! Why do things
Like that always happen to me – and disturb my sleep?
My whole family was awakened. But soon all
were fast asleep again except one person – me. I just
couldn’t seem to get back to a nice peaceful slumber.
Then as I began to think more clearly, I sensed the
dawning of a beautiful opportunity for an adventure.
It was then I reached for my Bible.
“Maybe there is a timely message for me, “ I
mused. The promise which unfolded was obviously
meant for me. It came like a soothing balm to my
troubled heart – burdened as I was over the current
dilemma You and I are aware of.
Right then I realized You were setting me
free from those feelings I had harbored. I could feel
my mind directed to thoughts of peace amid the
storm. Thank you for that disturbing experience.
I needed it!
