As I watched the rescuing of the 33 miners trapped in the mines of Copiapo, Chile, I was in total amazement. It didn’t even seem real. Looked like something you would find in a movie or on a television show. But for something of this enormity to be a part of the real world, the history that this event makes is amazing.
I sit and wonder what these miners could be thinking. Or the things they really might have felt while a half a mile beneath the earth’s surface. Imagine being trapped for 68 days inside of a place with no light whatsoever and very little food. That song, “Father I stretch” seems so evidenet that faith and hope are the most important things to have in this life.
Sometimes it is hard to believe how blessed we really and truly are. The little things that matter the most like the light of day are sometimes the things we ignore and do not acknowledge. But God is good. If anything to be thankful for, be thankful for your security and for another day that was not owed or guaranteed to us.
The rescuing of the miners is a real eye opener. It shows us that miracles still happen, even in the midst of this crazy mixed up world. And as I saw the first man being taken out of the grave he was trapped in for 68 days, I felt an exceeding joy as if I knew this person or as if he were a part of my own family. It was an amaxing event and happy to know that more and more are being rescued. God is awesome.
Crazy how sometimes we let a day go by without any hope or reason to curve up.
Open your windows and vision the amazing rainbows God provides as he did, when he’s doing and will do.
Power belongs to him for instilling hope in the families of those trapped in the box for all those days.
It was amazing to see the rescues being streamed throughout the midnight moon.
Another reason to opt to simply smile just because of the torch of new beginnings.
People never think it could be them in a grave alive but in pitch black.
Oh “Chi, Chi, Chi, le, le, le, le” as the miners sang in Copiapo. What a great reason to praise for this day.
