"Where Was Your God Today?"
He Was Very Busy!
First of all, he was trying to discourage anyone from taking this
flight. Those four flights together could hold over 1000 passengers, but
there were only 266 aboard.
He was on 4 commercial flights giving terrified passengers the ability to stay calm. Not one of the family members who was called
by a loved one on one of the high-jacked planes said that passengers
were screaming in the background. On one of the flights he was giving
strength to passengers to try to overtake the high-jackers.
He was busy trying to create obstacles for employees at the World
Trade Center. After all only around 20,000 were at the towers when the first
jet hit. Since the buildings hold over 50,000 workers, this was a miracle in itself. How many of the people who were employed at the WTC
told the media that they were late for work or they had traffic delays?
He was holding up 2-110 story buildings so that 2/3 of the workers
could get out. I was so amazed that the top of the towers didn't topple when
the jets impacted.
God was in the rescue workers who were running into the buildings as
most people were running out.
God was in the flight attendant who called her husband as her plane was
being hijacked to tell him that she loved him.
God was in the two men who carried a wheelchair-bound woman down 70
flights of stairs to safety.
God was in the people who stood bleeding, in line to give blood.
God was in the strangers in cars, picking up strangers stranded in the
city and taking them home to their families.
God is in the people who are begging to volunteer, to do anything to
God is in the thousands, if not millions who are flooding blood banks
thousands of miles away to help people they have never met.
God is in the people who are comforting someone even when they don't
know what to say.
God is in the people who watched and cried for people who may remain
anonymous in name, but never in their sacrifice.
God is in my neighborhood where I see flags waving from every home.
God is in the men and women, looking at 110 stories of rubble, and
seeing only the opportunity to find survivors.
God is with the heroes, most of whom will never be on the news, whose
stories will only be told to their closest friends and family; but who
saved someone's mother, father, sister, brother, daughter, son, husband,
wife, grandmother, grandfather, aunt, uncle, cousin, lover, colleague,
acquaintance, teacher, mentor or friend with a single act of kindness,
compassion and bravery.
God was not in the hearts of the people that caused these inhumane
events. However, God was indeed there, where he was needed the most.
... And what about how America and its people have come together in prayer for our great nation and the world.
It's time we all remember where our strength comes from - GOD. He wants us to
look to Him for everything, in good times and bad. This tragedy is a wakeup
call for the world -- we need to start living right, as God's people should.
Although this is without a doubt the worst thing I have seen in my
life, I can see God's miracles in every bit of it. I keep thinking
about my friend and praying for her every chance I have. I can't
imagine going through such a difficult time and not believing in God. Life
would be hopeless.
