… that dreadful day in our Nation’s History, when people cried out in the terror of the destruction of the Twin Towers and the death of so many individuals.
…watching the news reports over and over with my son, after my husband called to ask if I had heard the news, watching in disbelief that someone would actually commit such a horrendous act.
…that day when many cried out asking, “Where was God when all this happened?”
…that churches were filled that next Sunday with people looking for answers
…that churches were back to their normal level of visitors a few weeks after the planes rammed the towers.
…sharing with many the love of Jesus Christ because fear gripped their hearts.

Thankfully I know my God and He knows me!
I know that God was, is and always will be on the throne and in control!
I know that He loves me, and has made a way for me to go to heaven to live with Him forever! Jesus is that way, the only way to the Father.

I offer Jesus to you now….
…You who are searching for answers to life’s questions

…You who cannot make sense of the ugliness around you.
…You who are lonely and cannot fathom living another day alone
…You who are riddled with guilt over the things in your past
…You who have come to realize the need for a Savior…your need for Jesus!

Remember…these are God’s words and we are to live by them…

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

1John 4:15
He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

Matthew 10:39
Just bow your head and talk to and listen to God while you pray and ask Him to forgive you of your sins and draw you close to His heart as your read the Bible and come to know the heigth and breadth and depth and width of the love God has for you!

Then when you suffer by doing the will of God while you wait for Jesus return, in the service of Jesus Christ…

Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator. 1Peter 4:19
Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. Psalm 116:15
The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. Lamentations 3:24
