One day, when her broken-heart found no flight

2015-03-28 09.37.18

One day, when her broken-heart found no flight from the misery, shame, and upheaval of life, she was ready to commit suicide. Instead of drinking a bottle of poison from the bathroom medicine cabinet, however, Isobel listened to the sound of her father’s sleeping groans from his bedroom, and remembered that he had been a “dear, kind father…” She went back to her room, remembering the words of a Latin Poem… “In His will is our peace.” She considered that if God existed, she certainly wasn’t in
“His will”; perhaps, she wondered, that was why she had no peace.The young woman, at last knelt and whispered her cry to the Lord, “God, if there be a God, if you will prove to me that You are, and if You will give me peace, I will give You my whole life. I’ll do anything You ask me to do, go where You send me, obey You all my days.” That night she slept like a child, in perfect peace. She had not slept like that in many a long day. Isobel realized that God had answered her prayer!

(quoted from Isobel Miller Kuhn ‘by searching’)
