In times of crisis…

Listen. Wait. Be still. The answers are near. Don’t get nervous, and don’t be afraid. When I am worried, I remember the One that is able to calm me. Sometimes I break out and yell “Thank you Jessszzzusssss!” aprofilepict the top of my lungs.

I did this while at my parents house last night, and they looked at me with big smiles. They were a little surprised. I couldn’t understand why. I do this when I’m home alone at times. I thought they knew that about me. It made them happy!

We just started holding hands and praying lately. I direct them while speaking aloud. It feels good to do that. I have a strong feeling I will be doing that with others someday, but I don’t know when.

I can’t help but thank God by screaming in this manner. After all I’ve been through. I’m still going through a lot. I do my best to help my parents with all of their doctors appointments and everything. I wonder what I will do when they are gone. The thought of it scares me.

When I am shaken, and when I am rattled–I will remember the One that is able to fight every one of my battles. ~Zina Hermez

I'm a teacher, writer, and speaker. I got into publishing when I joined a Christian writers' group online where I met a few select authors who mentored me. My life changed. Through classes, webinars, and friendly emails, I've been encouraged to write. I started my blog to cope with my spinal injury in hopes of helping people.

  1. Beautiful Zina. I love that you shout, “Thank you Jesus!” How awesome that you and your parents can pray together and share these special time. Thanks for sharing.
    I’ll share something that has comforted me in the loss of my parents since they’ve both moved to heave. Psalm 27:10 reassures us, “When my mother and father forsake me, the Lord will take care of me.”
    Blessings on you dear and keep shouting praises to Jesus!


    1. Thank you Sharon! It feels so good to shout it out! I can’t help it sometimes. And I love that Psalm, I heard it the other day while listening to Bible Gateway. It gave me goose bumps. Thank you for reminding me of it. 🙂
