The Morning of 9/11/11
Ten years ago today I sat in my living room with my son as we watched the events of 9/11 unfold. In those brief moments I also witnessed the beginning of my son's destiny. Although I did not know how profoundly affected our lives would be from the devestating attacks on our nation, I knew that something began to stir in his young heart.
Now 10 years later, on the morning of 9/11/11 I am awakened at pre-dawn by the very vivid sound of my son's voice saying, "Hey Mom" It seemed so real! I heard him and I saw him so clearly that I opened my eyes and I looked at the open door. The enemy has tried to strike fear in the heart of our nation on this 10 year anniversary of 9/11, and now he tries to strike fear into the heart of this mother, whose son is deployed in Afghanastan, fighting this war on terrorism. I have a choice, to embrace the fear or CHOOSE to believe the scripture that I pray over him daily, Psalm 91......"He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord He is my fortress and my refuge, my God in Him will I trust."
I DO TRUST! I thank God for His faithfulness!!
I will not fear the snare of the fowler or the deadly pestilence, for my God will cover him with His feathers and under His wing will he take refuge!
My God is faithful!!
Praying for all of the men and women who serve our nation. For those who have lost their lives in this fight against terrorism, you will not be forgotten. We lift your family and friends in prayer on this day of remembrance.
