So many are posting today, I will keep this short. But today is a day we will never forget. It does not matter where you were that day, or what you were doing. Everything stopped when those planes hit the twin towers. Hearts stopped beating, minds froze in horror and disbelief, hands hung helplessly at sides, and then so many fantastic things happened. People said, Not me! I will do something. They rescued, they comforted, they fought back; fears and tears and smoke and hate cannot stop us from doing what God wants from us.
As Christians, we know that there is Evil at work in this world. We long for a better place, but until it is our turn to journey to heaven, our journey here is littered with pain and suffering. We do not despair or hang our hands in uselessness. We have work to do and despite the opposition of the Enemy, we work on, not despairing.
"But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. we are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed- 2 Cor. 4:7-9
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13
So remember those who are gone and the families and friends who grieve today, but do so with hope and courage that God will be glorified if we let our light shine on our journey home.
