Hello again! Thanks for coming back for the last day of the Silence in the Dark Release party!
“I was running away, Mother. The danger in Mexico was better than staying here and hurting Danny, or…”
Kate squared her shoulders and turned Bailey to face her. “I’m going to say something you won’t like.”
“What’s new?” A wry smile pulled at her lips. It didn’t matter what her mother said, it wouldn’t change anything.
“You’ve given this fear control and power over you. Shh…” she held her finger up when Bailey started to protest. “Hear me out. You’re holding on to it so tightly you can’t see anything else.”
“I’m not through. God saved you that day, but all you can see is your fear. Over and over he tells us to fear not, that he is with us. The way I see it, you can keep holding on to it and nothing changes. Or you can turn it over to him, trusting he will give you peace. It’s your choice.”
“But why did he let it happen in the first place? Why didn’t he save the twins?”
“Two hard questions I don’t have answers for.” Conflicting emotions crossed her mom’s face. “I wish I did. But for those times I don’t understand, I trust who he is. I look at what he’s done in the past—the blessings he’s poured out on us, and all the troubles he’s brought us through.”
I think we all struggle with fear, at least I know I do.But one thing that has helped me has been Jesus Calling, the one-year devotion journal. So, I've decided to give away a copy of the devotion to someone who leaves a comment. This is separate from the Rafflecopter!
All you have to do is leave a comment, giving your favorite scripture verse. Then click here to enter the Rafflecopter for a copy of Silence in the Dark and a $15 Amazon gift certificate.
