We take the Time to Remember 9/11

Today marks the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
9/11 was the day that no one would forget.
As I recall that day, was unbelievable.
My mom had just gotten off the phone from my dad, and she ran downstairs
with tears in her eyes. She turned on the T.V. and what I saw was shocking.
I saw millions, and thousands of people dying right in front of my eye.
I saw people crying, yelling, and screaming out in pain.
I saw the most horrifying thing ever...The World Trade Center completely
and utterly being destroyed.

After my mom turned off the T.V., and we went immediately to our church
in town. The women were getting together and praying like they had never prayed before.
Today, we remember those that died saving others, and those that died in vain.
There were many questions raised that day...but the one that was the most was...Why?
Why would God let this happen, and Why didn't He do something about it?
We may never know, but I do know one's a part of God's plan.
Romans 8:28, "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God..."

The God of Love:

As we think of the lives that are lost
regarding as nothing at all
The heartache and agony of those that are left
The devastation of the fall

The children left without a mum
to embrace them when they cry
The many alone without a daddy
To tuck them in bed at night

The parents also left to grieve
for the children they have lost
Husbands and wives also weep
paying an unbelievable cost

There is hope, a glimpse of light
amidst these darkened days
Our Lord Jesus who loves us so much
and hears when we kneel to pray

He can bring healing to the hurting heart
and comfort to those who weep
He is the strength that we can receive
For His love is ever so deep

Still were left wondering how this happened
and why all this needless grief
So many questions remain unanswered
we just need to have faith and believe

That our loving God is still in control
Though the remnants of terror remain
the broken lives and shattered dreams
The unspoken anguish and pain

He knows full well how we are feeling
He identifies grief with us
We can be sure He loves us so
For He is a God of LOVE.
