Link To The Story
Against all odds, when these boys and their coach were reported missing and then found after 9 days trapped in the cave. You all know the story s the whole world followed this amazing story and successful rescue. The fact that they were all found alive and well after 9 days was a miracle in itself. To rescue all 12 boys and their coach successfully as flood waters began to rise due to the monsoon season is yet another miracle. Then, after everyone had been rescued and safe, the water pump breaks causing rescuers to scramble for their lives as the waters in the cave quickly rose. I have to believe that God had a hand in everything during that rescue. God’s hands were with the rescuers and everything held in place until everyone was safely out. How can anyone doubt that God was not right there in control of the situation? Yes, there was one death during the rescue attempts. One rescuer lost his life and that was a devastating loss to everyone. But his death was not in vain and everyone made sure that was the case. The success of that rescue was motivated by Faith and determination… no other life will be lost.
Then the second miracle and proof that God is with us… The miracle baby buried in the woods and missing out there for 9 hours was found alive. GOD IS SO GOOD!!!
“A 5-month-old baby was rescued after a man allegedly buried it in the wilderness of the Montana mountains.”
It just seems so clear to me that God took care of the helpless and innocent during these moments. I know there are many other cases where children have suffered and died due to abuse and I will never understand why those things happen. Why some are saved through miracles and others are not. But I believe that God has a reason far beyond what anyone of us will ever understand and it is just important to trust and have faith. I don’t know any of these people, but their lives affected my heart.
Through all the tragedies in life, I have often found some good that occurred. Sometimes we are so devastated by the tragedy that it seems impossible to see any good that can come from it. But there is always good in every situation even if we can’t see it right then. Only when we allow ourselves to rise above the heartbreak and devastation of any tragedy or loss will we be able to appreciate the small miracles of good that still surround us every day. The two amazing stories above made news all over the world, but there are so many stories like them happening every day in our world, and every day God’s hands are a part of it all.
As for me, I capture God’s amazing love for us through my camera. It is how I show the world the miracles we take for granted every day. It is God that points me to what He wants me to capture, it is what He wants the world to see through the eyes of just an ordinary person like me. I am someone who has experienced many traumatic events in my life and yet I always see the beauty of life and God’s love all around me. It is an amazing feeling to feel and know without any doubt that God has control over my life.
I hope you are all able to find the beauty of life and God’s miracles all around you each day. They are there for you to enjoy.
