My emotions retreat deep within, I crawl inside myself and hide. Thoughts whiz around in my head as I cry out for peace inside this small closet. I wrap daddy’s coat around my shoulders, finding comfort in its warmth. When will he come home to save me?
The kind words from Mrs. Jenson, my Sunday school teacher enter my head through the whirlwind of fear. “And in that moment, the God of David, your safe tower and refuge will be there to comfort you.”
And it happens. I feel arms wrap around me, and I no longer feel afraid. Sixteen years of pain begin to escape in sobs, as I know she’s too far-gone to hear me.
“Oh, Lord, I cry out from deep within my hiding place, and you have found me hidden behind the walls that shelter my heart and soul. Be with me now.”
