I became accustomed to sleeping with the lamp on and my Bible in the bed with me after someone began stalking me and making threatening phone calls. I would hear noises outside, but the police could never find anyone. I had spent so much money trying to secure the house, only to discover that my attempts had been of no help. One night I awoke, and the lamp was on as usual, but I could smell bread baking. I thought I must have been so stressed out that I’d forgotten to turn the oven off, and I ran to the kitchen. It was cold and dark. Nothing was cooking, nothing was turned on, and there was no smell of bread. As I got back into bed, I could smell fresh bread again. I told myself that this was God’s way of comforting me because fresh bread was served at Sunday dinner with the family all around. I did feel comforted, and I went back to sleep.
This is an excerpt from my book, String of Pearls. I believe Christ was with me that night long ago. To find out how I realized He was there read, String of Pearls.
