So, today my coworker became ill while I was in her office. I had to call 911, ride in the ambulance with her, and sit with her at the hospital. I cannot explain to you the peace that came over me whilst all of this was happening around me. When she was on the floor, I laid down with her and I prayed over her. When I called 911, my voice was steady. When I had to break the news to her husband I was strong.
Before today I didn’t know how I would react in an emergency. I am so thankful that God was with me during this time. The words of peace and comfort that came from me were not my own — in my head I was so worried and I did NOT feel equipped to be the one there — but I knew that strength and peace is what she ultimately needed.
