A minister visiting the island of Sicily was caught in a sudden fierce thunderstorm.
He entered the first cottage he could reach to get out of the heavy rain. He was kindly welcomed by the mother of the family of four children.
After introducing himself, and asking several questions, the minister asked the woman if she was afraid in this terrible storm. The thunder was very loud and the lightning flashed often.
Looking up with an expression of surprise, the woman answered:
“And why should I be afraid? Am I not as safe in God’s protection when the thunder roars as when the sun shines brightly?”
This woman was truly happy and secure. She was strong in her faith, giving all glory to God. Every true Christian is safe in God’s protection.
Are you safe for this life and for eternity?
