He is everywhere …

 

… supporting, comforting, loving … and offering eternal life to all who chose it, even with their final breath.

I recently came across this “letter from God” that we received in an e-mail right after 9/11.  It touched me deeply when I re-read it, so maybe you will want to read it again too, even if you have read it before.

‘MEET ME IN THE STAIRWELL’

You say you will never forget where you were when

you heard the news On September 11, 2001.

Neither will I.

I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room

with a man who called his wife to say ‘Good-Bye.’ I

held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the

peace to say, ‘Honey, I am not going to make it, but it

is OK..I am ready to go.’

I was with his wife when he called as she fed

breakfast to their children. I held her up as she

tried to understand his words and as she realized

he wasn’t coming home that night.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a

woman cried out to Me for help. ‘I have been

knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!’ I said.

‘Of course I will show you the way home – only

believe in Me now.’

I was at the base of the building with the Priest

ministering to the injured and devastated souls.

I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He

heard my voice and answered.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat,

with every prayer. I was with the crew as they

were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the

believers there, comforting and assuring them that their

faith has saved them.

I was in Texas , Virginia , California , Michigan , Afghanistan …

I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news.

Did you sense Me?

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew

every name – though not all know Me. Some met Me

for the first time on the 86th floor.

Some sought Me with their last breath.

Some couldn’t hear Me calling to them through the

smoke and flames; ‘Come to Me… this way… take

my hand.’ Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me.

But, I was there.

I did not place you in the Tower that day. You

may not know why, but I do. However, if you were

there in that explosive moment in time, would you have

reached for Me?

Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey

for you. But someday your journey will end. And I

will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may

be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are

‘ready to go.’

I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.

God

    Thank you for this. In all the darkness of my last two years, I have had several ask if I am mad at God. I understand the question, but my answer is an unequivocal, “No.” He did not cause my darkness, and He has been palpably with me through the entire ordeal–I don’t know how would have made it otherwise. And this is in spite of the fact that I was totally numb and unable to “turn to Him” or pray or anything like that. He knew that and was just there, gently guiding, supporting. It is amazing. So thanks for making me reflect on how powerful and omnipresent, but still how generous and good and kind He is. C

    C — I am humbled that this post touched you so. If not another person reads it, the fact that you and I both did and reflected on it, and were touch by it, is enough. Thank you, friend.

    A bit of humor, a touch of the importance of family and relationships, a blast from the past, a reminder about hugs, a great recipe for a guilt free cake, a look behind the scenes… topped by a comforting letter from God…it’s been a good week 🙂

    Thank you for blogging so well!
