But we haven’t truly lost our way have we?
We came together as a nation and we prayed.
We prayed for those who fought to save lives. We prayed for those who lost loved ones. We prayed and we prayed for God to show our nation how to heal.
And He did.
He brought us through a tragedy that at that moment we thought we’d never get through as a nation. Individually, He gave us each hope for a future. As we watched people come together to help each other, we found our faith in God increase.
Twelve years later…
Memories have faded a little. Even with each name read on this day, it isn’t quite as breath-taking as it was that next year as we held the moments of silence. And we don’t care as much as we did then.
The question is…have we done this with God?
Do you still remember God? Do you still remember what Christ did for you? Did you receive Christ as your Savior early in life and now He is a faded memory?
God has not forgotten you. God has not left you. God still loves you.
How will you keep the flame of Christ alive in your life?
