Our world changed on 9-11. The terrorists bombing of the World Trade Center instead of sending America into utter destruction--has instead inspired an awakening. We experienced what Israel had been going through for many years. It is amazing what hatred can do. Yet in spite of it--God's love shines through. God has placed certain things to remind us that He is in the midst of our suffering and that He will make a way. Through the ashes stood a small chapel (above)30 feet away from the World Trade Center rubble. Though miniscule in size amid the towering towers-this was an annointed place that saw the birth of a nation. This was a chapel that saw a humble George Washington offer a prayer of Thanksgiving after his inauguration as our First President on April 30 1789. Over 200 years later it was again the place where many gathered at another pivotal point in this nation's history with the bombings of the World Trade Center. Again many gathered in humble prayer to Almighty God and He heard. There was an outpouring of so much love because at that moment in time people all over this nation realized we are not promised tomorrow and what is truly important in life is not things but people. We hope if you have forgotten that feeling that you will seek to again remember because we can not forget the lessons from 9-11. Love won and will continues to win as long as we remember that to love one another as God commanded is one of the most fulfilling things we can do as citizens of this "City on a hill."
St. Paul was the little chapel that withstood--as if to remind us God's word will always stand--there is hope through the world's evil--use His word and make your stand.
In memory of 9/11 we are posting links ON THIS PAGE to some moving presentations. One shows the horror and the other shines the hope through the ashes.
Please listen to this link on the WTC and the other link at the bottom and though your heart may bleed--God does give us hope.
Pictures do paint a thousand words. In a world full of pain our soldiers are like a refuge of hope--and the innocents know it. Please remember to pray for them as they strive to keep another 9-11 from happening because prayers to our awesome God do matter, as the founding fathers knew well in that great war that saw the birth of a nation. Our soldiers have through time stood for what is the best in America from the time of George Washington to today's dark desperate world still at war.
Amidst the shadow of the World Trade Center was building small in size but a priceless jewel in history--dedicated to honor God. This little building became a symbol for a nation through the chaos of 9/11--it's rightful place as it was formed in time to give praise and honor to Him.
Please listen to the links below and feel a policeman's awe of coming before a sanctuary set aside by God. There is also such a place in you.
A relationship with the Savior is yours for the asking-- as all of us needs His amazing saving Grace and what a difference it will make in your life. Don't let self get in the way--surrender it all to God--the founding father's did and they left a legacy of freedom for you--but there is an end as we all have all seen in 9/11--no one is promised tomorrow.
Ask and it shall be given ye
Seek and ye shall find
Knock and the door will be opened
