God answers all your prayers.

I haven’t open my mouth to tell them but God opened their hearts to call me and save me.

I’m going away for a few weeks but it’s not for holidays or vacations or having fun. I’m going away because I needed it and God answered to my prayers.

Recently, I heard a death threat was coming for me. I didn’t know why since I don’t actually talk with anybody. But just knowing I could lose my life for doing nothing made me lose my sleep.

I couldn’t sleep for 4 nights and I tried to do three things at the same time: painting my house, crying while painting and praying. Praying a lot. Asking why to God, asking him for protection, asking for answers, asking to correct me if I won that threat for something I did and I haven’t noticed, asking Him to be with me in any moment and finally, accepting His will.

As a child of God, I know I’m protected every day, everywhere, and I know I will die the day God gives the command to death to touch me. Until that very moment, I’m protected. Fear made me question Him for 4 nights but finally, I accepted His will, because, honestly, there’s nothing I can do better than Him. And even though I cried 4 nights in denial, He answered me in the most loving way.

My family needed me across the border for a couple of weeks so I made my bags and took a bus to go away for a few days. My family over there doesn’t know a thing, seriously, I haven’t open my mouth to tell them but God opened their hearts to call me and save me.

I’m really happy I’m a child of the most loving God who keeps protecting me even when the only thing I do when I’m scared is ask Him why.

Update: I sewed my gladiator sandals and they’re stronger than ever. I’m pretty confident they will keep up with me this time.
