In the Bible we read, "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty" (Ps. 91: 1). For an ever-increasing understanding of God's omnipotence and omnipresence and of man's relation to God, I am humbly grateful.

I was returning home alone from a special church meeting a bit later than usual one evening when I became aware of being followed. This was brought to my attention when a light was flashed into my car. I continued in my usual course and felt somewhat relieved when, at a traffic signal in my favor, I lost sight of the other car. However, as I approached my home, which was another several blocks, this car appeared from a side street just ahead of me, turned, and came directly toward me. There were two persons in the car, and they pulled over to the curb and parked just across the street as I made the turn into our driveway. No one else was at my home at the time. I sat for a few seconds, praying to God for direction as to the next step to take. I felt completely in God's care, and all that came to me to do was to be about my Father's business. It seemed right for me to be in my own home.

I decided to leave the car in the driveway instead of putting it in the garage, and as I came around behind my car to go into the house, I came face to face with an intruder. We both stopped short not more than a few feet apart. Not a word was spoken. After possibly a second or two, the intruder turned and went back to the sidewalk; then walked down in front of the property next door. After this he came back and stopped again, directly opposite me but on the sidewalk, where he remained facing me for several seconds. Then he started out into the street as though to go to the car; but when he was about halfway across the street, he again stopped, turned, and stood facing me.
