Where was God?
I had a very dear friend question my faith
in God right after the terrorist attack on America. Her question was
simply put, "Where is your God today?" She was very
hurt, as all Americans were, so I tried not to react
defensively. Since that moment I have prayed and grieved
over the disastrous events. However, I believe I have
the answer. I know where my God was the morning of
September 11, 2001! He was very busy.
First of all, he was trying to discourage anyone from
taking this flight. Those four flights together held
over 1000 passengers and there was 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
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.
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.
Thanks for letting me share this with you!
