Elijah, thanks for this story – and it IS a SHTF story. Any time you are in a crisis situation and you don’t know if you can survive it or not, it puts you right in the middle of it, just as if you found yourself in any other situation. It was SHTF for YOU. Absolutely. I am glad you added that last comment about your call out to Christ to save you. Since you called on the most powerful source available, He saw you through it. When it happens to you, you know who is responsible for the help given. Good life story, Elijah. I am afraid of water anyway, so it just strikes terror through my entire being to think of what you must have experienced. I feel that same way when I am in a swimming pool and can’t touch the bottom! Go figure!
