As a person who had some difficult experiences early on in my life I became aware that God is there. I had a supernatural peace wash over me one day on a day I felt like I couldn’t take the situation I was in anymore. I found God right where I was. This was in 2012. I know opportunities came my way from a few people. I began to understand that God works in ways that you don’t always see him working but believe me God works through people. I can say that as a child even the female principal at the school I went to had a daughter my age. I remember her disciplining me one day. I reminded myself to always show respect to the adults in your life that are older than you are. You should always show your elders a certain kind of respect especially if they like you. You never want to be disrespectful to someone else. God put people in my life that offered me opportunities I would not have otherwise had. I knew God had opened doors for me through the people that God put in my life. I believe God cares about me enough to always hear my prayers. I had fear that was coming from the uncertainty of the future but in the midst of all of this chaos God has given me. The peace of God surpasses all understanding. I know the bible says that in one of the psalms. I was actually encouraged by an older female friend to read the psalms in the Bible. I thought what a great suggestion I just love Bible poetry particularly psalms 1, 23, 27 and 91.
