Love unexpected

by: Ricki Danielle Foster



I was walking home one day alone from the bus stop when I heard footsteps behind me. I turned to look and nothing was there. I prayed and said "Lord, guide me home safely and lead my footsteps". I heard the footsteps once again behind me. I turned around and saw a man behind me. I ran all the way home and slammed the door behind me.

I was watching the 11:00 o'clock news later that night when I saw the same man posted for rape and murder of a 15 year old girl...the same age as me. I called the police immediately and told them my story. When they caught the man they asked why he didn't attack me too...his reply was simple..."why would I attack her when she had a man walking right beside her".

The police turned to me and asked," I thought you said you were alone" I said, "I guess I was wrong."

No matter what kind of predicament you may face, God is always there by your side. I was safe that night because God was walking right beside me.
