Angie’s story

Author: Hazel Southam, 22 August 2019


‘We were going on holiday to Italy. It started to get very dark outside. There were people who were praying on the plane. I must have sensed that there was a dangerous situation. Then, these words of assurance from Psalm 23 came to me and I meditated on them. I was 17 and had only been a Christian for a matter of months. 

‘You could see the lightning and clouds and I was worried. When we landed, there were fire engines out on the runway. The rain was torrential. I can’t describe it. 

‘It was completely silent around me. Everyone was holding their breath. 

 ‘Psalm 23 is very meaningful to me. When I read it now, I remember that time of going through the storm. It brings it all back. God was very close to me then.’
