I knew that God was with me

One morning before school, my mom dropped me off at my grandmother’s. I noticed that I had a scratchy voice and a sore throat. I could only whisper.

I told my grandmother that my throat hurt. So then my grandmother told me she had a Bible verse for me. I’ve learned some Bible verses at the Christian Science Sunday School, and they help me feel close to God. When I think about what a Bible verse means, it helps me feel comforted and know God’s care for me. It also helps me focus in school and feel safe whenever I am scared. 

The verses my grandmother shared with me were from Psalm 139, and they’re talking about God guiding and holding us: “If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me” (verses 9, 10).
