Lord, my God! Yesterday was the 16th anniversary of 9/11/. We remember the attack of terrorists on our land. You did many miracles that day. You saved many lives~ some through little things that made people late getting to work in the world trade center~
a phone call, a dirty diaper, spilled coffee, traffic tie up. These small incidental occurrences (Your handiwork) saved lives. However many lost their lives that day. It was a day of infamy, of terrorists trying to bring fear to our hearts. However the folks on Flight 93 taught them that they will never win the battle~
We also focused on Flight 93. Those brave men and women lost their lives saving many others. You put the key people on that flight who needed to be there to act to save so many. They are heroes forever! We give You Thanksgiving Lord! Your love and wisdom has saved our nation many times.
I remember one of the many stories that came out of the Twin Towers rescue attempts that captured my heart:
A son had lost his father who went to volunteer to save and rescue people buried under the debris. The son mourned knowing his Dad was not saved. . . until one day months later. His doorbell rang. There stood a person come to tell him how his Dad had rescued them. It seems both trapped for awhile. During this time the person had talked to his dad about the Lord, and his father had accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior. Tears of joy flowed down the son’s face. The messenger had brought him the good news he so desperately needed. How like You Lord, that You would cause the salvation of his Dad under a huge pie of refuge as he rescued a stranger; then You would send the stranger to the son to share the wonderful news!
Even in the dark times, You are working Lord! God you are so good! We thank You for continuing to work in our nation!
