Where was God on 9/11/2001?
Many of us have heard this question, "Where was your God when the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were attacked?" I know where God was the morning of September 11, 2001 and He was very busy. He was trying to discourage anyone from taking those flights.
The four planes held over 1,000 passengers and there were only 266 aboard. He was on 4 commercial flights giving terrified passengers the ability to stay calm. Not one of the family members who were called by a loved one on any of the hijacked planes said that passengers were screaming in the background. On one of the flights He was giving wisdom and strength to passengers to try and overtake the hijackers so that others might be spared.
He was busy trying to create obstacles for employees at the World Trade Center. After all, only around 20,00 were at the Towers when the 1st jet hit. Since the buildings held over 50,000 workers this was a miracle in itself. How many of the people who were employed at the World Trade Center told the media that they were late for work or were stuck due to traffic delays. He was holding up two 110 story buildings so that 2/3 of the workers could get out. It was so amazing that the top of the Towers didn't topple as the jets impacted. And when they did fall, they fell inward. God didn't allow them to topple over as many more lives would have been lost. And when the buildings did collapse God picked up thousands of His brave children and carried them home with Him, reassuring His other frightened children that they were safely in His care. He sat down and cried that 19 of His children could have so much hate in their hearts.
He sent His children that are best trained for this kind of disaster to save the few that were still alive; and then sent many others from all different cultures to help in any way that they were needed. And He still is not finished. He holds the loved ones that are left behind in His arms. He comforts them daily. His other children are given the strength to reach out to them and to help them in any way they can. And I believe He will continue to help us in what is yet to come. He will give the people in charge the strength and the wisdom to do the right things. He would never leave us in our time of need.
So if anyone asks, "Where was your God on September 11, 2001?" You can say . . . everywhere.

As a sequel to that, this wonderful story is also making the rounds on the internet. I found it first this evening on Snopes, so here it is from their web site:
