All day long I have been listening to the news coming out of Chile, where the miners, that have been trapped underground for about 2 months have been brought out of that collapsed mine.
This morning, when I heard about the first four or so that had been brought out, they were saying that the rescue attempt to get them all out would go through Wednesday. Well, now, at 6:20 pm eastern time, I just watched as the 27th man came out of the ground to cheers of everyone there. With his ascension to the surface, there are now, only six more left, and I will tell you what helped get these men out of the collapsed mine safely. It was the fact that they all, to the man, said that there were actually 34 in the mine with them. They were all there with God.
One man, after getting out said that ‘he met God down there. He also met the devil. “God and the Devil fought over me. And God won!” That says it all in a nutshell. And I think that the attitudes of these men are fantastic. We could all learn so much from what has happened.
I believe, that this miracle, is something that this world needs right now. We have been so far offbase with what has been going on in this world, that we have all forgotten that it is God who made this world, and it is God who keeps us safe. These thirty three miners who survived 69 days underground have God to thank, and they are all acknowledging that. And I think that is the main reason that nothing has gone wrong with their rescue, that has gone amazingly well. I wish to take this chance, to say to everyone who has helped to bring these men to the surface….God Bless you all for your efforts, and your ingenious way of figuring out how to get this rescue done. This is a moment that we can all look to with hope and gladness because for once, the news is full of something that is good. NOT BAD. Revel in the moment. It won’t last……unfortunately.
God Bless America, her troops, her allies and her people
