"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27"

In Memory of 9/11

Received this in an email and just wanted to share it.


You say you will never forget where you were when 
you heard the news On September 11, 2001. 
Neither will I. 

I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room 
with a man who called his wife to say 'Good-Bye.' I 
held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the 
peace to say, 'Honey, I am not going to make it, but it 
is OK..I am ready to go.' 

I was with his wife when he called as she fed 
breakfast to their children. I held her up as she 
tried to understand his words and as she realized 
he wasn't coming home that night. 

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a 
woman cried out to Me for help. 'I have been 
knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!' I said. 
'Of course I will show you the way home - only 
believe in Me now.' 

I was at the base of the building with the Priest 
ministering to the injured and devastated souls. 
I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He 
heard my voice and answered. 

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat, 
with every prayer. I was with the crew as they 
were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the 
believers there, comforting and assuring them that their
faith has saved them. 

I was in Texas , Virginia , California , Michigan , Afghanistan . 
I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news. 
Did you sense Me? 

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew 
every name - though not all know Me. Some met Me 
for the first time on the 86th floor. 

Some sought Me with their last breath. 
Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the 
smoke and flames; 'Come to Me... this way... take 
my hand.' Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me. 
But, I was there. 

I did not place you in the Tower that day. You 
may not know why, but I do... However, if you were 
there in that explosive moment in time, would you have 
reached for Me? 

Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey 
for you . But someday your journey will end. And I 
will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may 
be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are 
'ready to go.' 

I will be in the stairwell of your final moments. 

During the next 60 seconds, stop whatever you are 
doing, and take this opportunity. (Literally it 
is only 1 minute.)  All you have to do is the 

Stop and think and appreciate God's power 
in your life, for doing what you know is pleasing to 
Him. If you are not ashamed to do this, follow the 
instructions. Jesus said, 'If you are ashamed of Me, I will be 
ashamed of you before My Father' 

If you are not ashamed, copy and send this message....only
if you believe 'Yes, I love my God. He is my 
fountain of Life and My Savior. He Keeps me going day and 
night. Without Him, I am no one. But with Him, I can do 
everything. Christ is my strength.' 

 PASSING IT ON!   I'm sorry but I am not breaking this one....Let us pray 
Prayer chain for our Military...please don't break it.

That email probably reached some hearts who were open to the message. God is with us through all our trials, pain and grief. We just have to reach out to him. Thanks for sharing it here. I have seen the same type of message in video form, too. Very powerful.

What a wonderful reminder that God is with us no matter what, that God is in control NO MATTER WHAT, and that all we have to do is reach out and take His outstretched hand! Thank you for a powerful blessing!

God is in control ALL the time! He has His hand in everything!
Thought this was a wonderful reminder that through everything He is always with us and is always in control. We may not understand it sometimes but He does.
