Scripture have been on my mind recently. As a Mormon, I believe in the Book of Mormon as another testament of Jesus Christ. But, I also believe in the Holy Bible and have come to love its’ stories and messages. My favorite scripture is actually from the Old Testament.
I grew up in Virginia for most of my life. In the fall 2002, there was a very scary incident in northern Virginia. The Beltway sniper was having a killing spree. Many attacks were in and near D.C., but a few were around where I lived. The sniper was injuring and killing people at gas stations, waling into school, getting into their car in the parking lot, and during the day as well!
My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion: So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck. Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble. When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet. Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.
