World Trade Centre – Where was God?
Many of us have heard that question "Where was your God when the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon were attacked?"
Well, I know where my God was
the morning of September 11, 2001, and He was very busy!
He was trying to discourage anyone from taking these flights. Those four
flights together held over 1000 passengers and there were only 266
He was on 4 commercial flights giving terrified passengers the ability
to stay calm. Not one of the family members who were 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 hi-jackers.
He was busy trying to create obstacles for employees at the World Trade
Centre. After all, only around 20,000 were at the towers when the first
jet hit. Since the buildings held over 50,000 workers, this was a Miracle in
itself. How many of the people who were employed at the World Trade
Centre 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. And when they did fall, they fell inward. God didn't allow
them to topple over, as many more lives would have been lost.
And when the buildings went down, my God picked up over 6,000 of his
children and carried them home with him. Reassuring his frightened
children that the worst was over and the best was yet to come.
He sat down and cried that 19 of his children could have so much hate in
their hearts. That they didn't choose Him, but another god that doesn't
exist, and now they are lost forever.
He sent His children that are best trained for this disaster and had
them save the few that were still alive, but unable to help themselves. And
then sent many others to help in anyway they were needed.
He still isn't finished though, He holds the love ones that were left
behind in His arms. He comforts them daily. His other children are given the strength to reach out to them and help them in any way they can.
And I believe He will continue to help us in what is to come. He will
give the people in charge of this great nation the strength and the wisdom to do the right thing. He would never leave us in our time of need.
So when anyone asks, "Where was your God on September 11", you can say "everywhere"! And yes, although this is without a doubt the worst thing I have seen in my life, I see God's miracles in every bit of it. I keep
praying for those who don't believe in God, every chance I have.
I can't imagine going through such
a difficult time and not believing in God.
Life would be hopeless.
