Welcome to "God Is Week".
God is... our protector.
Follower of Jesus Christ.. you're bulletproof until your work for Him is done.
A 17-year-old girl who was shot while praying to God for strength inside her bedroom in Texas is now praising God for protecting her after she escaped with only a graze to her arm.
Kimberly Mendoza was kneeling down and praying when the bullet came through the wall of her home.
They believe it was fired from a nearby apartment complex. It landed on her blanket after grazing her.
Mendoza says that when she got shot, she didn't realize what happened at first because she was praying with the lights off. She simply got up and ran after she heard something that sounded like an explosion.
"I know my faith. Everybody can laugh about me. Everybody can say you're a Christian. You're so weird or something like that, but I feel good because God is so important to me," she said.
"I love God. I know if I die, I know I'm good because I know I can go to Heaven with Him. I know He takes care of my family," she said.
She said some people were saying it was God's fault why she got shot but she doesn't see it that way.
"He shows me so many things and He takes care of me always. And I know he chose me for something great and I want to give Him [my] life," she said.
I'm convinced we'll all be amazed when the curtain is pulled back in Heaven and we're shown how God protected us because "it wasn't our time yet".
But I'm also convinced He gives us some hints in this life.
Can you name a time when you know God protected you from harm?
