An Essay I Found That My Brother Daniel Wrote For School Today
“What The Lord Means To Me”
Through a scary situation, the Lord has proven his faithfulness to me. My mom, for the first time, was going to let me look around the store by myself. I was so excited, no more riding in grocery carts. When we got to Sears I asked my mom if I could look around, and she said, ‘‘Yes.” I started by going up the escalator and up, up, up I went until I reached the top. My mom followed me for a bit and then stopped to look at something. I took the chance and started to walk quickly ahead of her. Next, when I was sure I was alone, I went to the boys’ section to look at some clothes. About ten minutes later, I looked around, realizing, I was lost. I started freaking out, looking around frantically. By that point, I was really scared but then I asked the Lord to guide me to get me to my family or for them to find me. Right when I thought God had abandoned me, I heard a familiar voice, and it was my sister, Jordan. I ran up to Jordan and hugged her tight. At that moment, I knew no matter where I go God will never abandon me.
“Teach me to see another door in the very inaction of the hour. Help me to find in the very prohibition thus to serve Thee, a new opening into Thy service. Inspire me with the knowledge that a man may at times be called to do his duty by doing nothing, to work by keeping still, to serve by waiting. When I remember the power of the “still small voice,” I shall not murmur that sometimes the Spirit suffers me not to go.”—George Matheson
“Desperation is better than despair. Faith did not make our desperate days. Its work is to sustain and solve them. The only alternative to a desperate faith is despair, and faith holds on and prevails.”—Charles Cowman
