I was in my early twenties. I had got in the car with someone that I knew and didn't believe would bring harm to me. As we were riding, he began to say things that made me feel uncomfortable. First, because he was married, and then, because he was totally out of line.
I was good at talking my way out of situations, so I was told, but this was one time fear set in. I believe it was because of the gun that I felt under the seat of the car, and the realization that I didn't really know this guy at all.
I began to say the first things that came into my head. I talked about what his wife would think about what he was doing and what my brother would do if he found out. Nothing shook this man. Wow, it hit me; noone saw me get in this man's car.
The silence was getting to me. I didn't know what he was thinking or what was on his mind to do after he got what he wanted. One thing I did know, I had to escape.
When he turned off the main road onto this less traveled road, I knew exactly where he was taking me---the GRAVEYARD. This was a place where guys took girls to make them do all kinds of things. My plan was to jump from the car as soon as I got a chance, but it was as if he read my mind, because he sped up.
We are now in the graveyard, and he wants to talk. Wanting me to know that he wasn't going to hurt me, but wanted to be with me. Getting a little courage, I got smart. For one hour and a half, we went back and forth with words until he got tired and began to take my clothes off.
This was serious, and the look in his eyes frighten me more than I can explain. What do I do? I pray. I knew that God existed and that it was Him getting me out of scrape after scrape; I wasn't that smart. When I think about those deadly situations I was in, who else could it have been?
Now, this is where you may not believe me, and I really don't care, because I was there! As this man and I struggle, the fight was leaving me, and I screamed out,"Lord, help me!" That's when I saw a big white bear in the trees. It wasn't a scary sight; it amazed me. I wanted this guy to see it, so I told him to look over his shoulders, something was in the trees. From that day to this one, I don't know what he saw, but I know that he had this strange frighten look on his face as he hurried to get from the GRAVEYARD.
My belief is that God was there, and He showed this man something other than what I saw. I am saved now, and that incident is what caused me to believe that God will never leave me or you. Also, it gives me hope to know that if He was there when I was a sinner, how much more will He be with me now that I am His child.
