8 YEARS AGO TODAY.
Hijacked jetliners hit the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon outside Washington. A fourth hijacked plane crashes into a field in Pennsylvania.
Trading on Wall Street is stopped. The Federal Aviation Administration halts all flight operations at the nation's airports for the first time in U.S. history. U.S. military is placed on high alert. President Bush addresses the nation and vows to "find those responsible and bring them to justice."
Hundreds of New York City firemen and policemen sent to rescue WTC workers are lost when the WTC Twin Towers collapse. “Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children. " - President George W. Bush, November 11, 2001
I remember how everyone was looking to God for answers then too, leaning on him for strength, hope and to find some peace in the midst of all this horrific terrorist act. What happened, now people have turned their back on God it seems, and leaves him out of everything, out of the every day life, what will it take to bring America back to her knees, and to the one and only true living God? Just ponder on these things, lets each of us ask our self, how can we get closer to God, how can tell more people about this living Saviour named Jesus? Yes today is the day of salvation, now is the accepted time, we may not have another tomorrow, like Proverbs says, Boast not thyself of tomorrow, for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth. Those who died on September 11th 2001, did not know that day they would come face to face with the Almighty God, do you know? Can you say without a shadow of doubt yes if today I met God face to face, I would feel secure in his presence, and know I was his, bought and paid for by the blood of Jesus Christ. Nothing for us to do, except just accept that gift, and our sins will be under the blood, and God will see them no more. Have a wonderful weekend, and may God bless America.
