I was humiliated and embarrassed for myself and our family, but my hands were tied because I had where to go. There was way I would be able to rent our house to the young woman. She cried because I had made a mess of her life. I cried because Dave had made a mess of my life and hers. I'm t saying that I was all Jesus-centered at that time, because I was t, but one thing I do kw: it was only God that strengthened me and gave me courage to carry on my everyday duties as a mother and employee, despite these setbacks. Bessie Macklin kws about the storms of that affect every part of our lives. When her husband abandoned her family, she was nearly overwhelmed by the winds of anger, frustration, and fear. Yet when the winds and rain of life seemed to almost overtake her, she found strength; she found God's miracle, a path that would allow her to find Abiding in the Eye of the Storm. Through the telling of her own stirring story and a collection of stories of other individuals finding the power of God to overcome their trials and tribulations, Macklin's testimony is both an inspiration and a guide toward surviving the tribulations God puts before each of us.
