Danger? God's power to the rescue

Safe in threatening situations

As I stood in the doorway across the room, she cocked the gun. It was pointed directly at me. Yet I was totally calm, unafraid. I felt the power and presence of God's love and had no doubt He was protecting and caring for each of us.

What had led to this confrontation? Earlier that evening, a friend and I were having dinner in a restaurant. She confided that for many months her roommate had often expressed emotionally disturbing behavior, and my friend often feared for her life. She wanted my help in asking the roommate to move. As we began eating, this roommate walked into the restaurant. She had followed my friend there. She intended to join us, but when we politely asked her to leave, her disorderly conduct became so disturbing to the guests that the police were called.
