I remember sitting around as a young girl along with my aunties, and cousins speaking about experiences with God. One of my encounters I shared was when I was three years old visiting my dad’s sisters and cousins and friends on a hot summer day. I remembered how it was being brought up in the big city before moving to the suburbs and how my dad and mom who migrated from the south to begin a new chapter in their lives and my Dad making a living and to raise their children to have a better life then their own. I’m so grateful that I was born to loving parents who knew God and instill their beliefs in us. I remember how everyone was zoned in their own conversations, how the noise of buses and trains and the hustle and bustle of Saturday afternoon was filled with people coming and going. I remember the automobiles would drive down the street and how the fruit man and peanut man would shout for the attention of their goods. This particular Saturday afternoon I was not playing with the other children but I was interested in the surroundings taken place all around me. I felt invisible at this moment and compel to go across the street. As I ran out it became silent for me but screams from everyone else. I remember as I found out later the lady with the club foot who was suppose to be taking care of ran after me. The story goes that she couldn’t walk fast but this particular time no one didn’t believe how she frantically which caught everyone’s else attention. I remember clearly how tall and mesmerizing the good looking man as he got out of his car. Panicky he looked and it was so quiet as it everything stopped. His facial expression was something I never saw in a person but as I grew that this was a look of unbelief that I wasn’t hit nor did the car hit me. My family onlookers was in a panic and thought the worse too. When they finally realize that I was not hurt; the man felt relief and was angry looking at my family as if to say how could you let her ran out in the street; they thanked the man; but most importantly the look that he gave directly to me as it telepathically saying it was God that saved you. When I recalled this story my mother was astonished as I really don’t know how the story became so vivid from my recall and I got spooked out when my mother said “Deborah you were only 3 years when that happen……
Psalm 46 :1-11; has blessed me throughout the years; I pray it was bless you to past forward – BLESSINGS
1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
7 The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
8 Come and see what the Lord has done, the desolation he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
11 The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
