Meet Me In The Stairwell

"My Soul Hath Them Still In Remembrance, And Is Humbled In Me"
Lamentations 3:20

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 knew 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.

Stop and think and appreciate God's power in your life, for doing what you know is pleasing to Him.

Jesus said, 'If you are ashamed of Me, I will be ashamed of you before My Father.'

Yes, I love my God. He is my fountain of Life and My Savior. He Keeps me going day and night. Without Him, I am no one. But with Him, I can do everything.

Christ is my strength.

I did not write this, it was part of an email someone sent to me and I wanted to share it with you all.

Never forget this day.

If you have the opportunity, go hug a loved one.

My prayers go out to the families, friends and loved ones of all that was lost on that day.

In The Arms Of An Angel, Fly Away From Here
From This Dark, Cold Hotel Room, And The Endlessness That You Fear
You Are Pulled From The Wreckage Of Your Silent Reverie
You're In The Arms Of An Angel; May You Find Some Comfort Here
