The opportunity to share part of my testimony arose so naturally in class this evening, I couldn't pass it up.
We were discussing life and death situations, both natural and man-made, and the reading from our textbook was focused specifically on the events of September 11. Although the students were barely old enough to remember that day, each recalled something specific.
When it was my turn to share, they had many questions which ultimately came down to how I reacted to the tragedy and uncertainty that were unfolding around me. I mentioned that while it was indeed an unusual day, as a Christian I felt a supernatural peace and security.
They listened attentively -never more so, in fact- and now I'm wondering which parts, if any, sank in.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:6-7
