A Woman's Walk

Week of January 25, 2009

“He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.” ~ Job 5:9

When US Airways flight 1549 went down in the Hudson River recently, I—like so many others—watched in awe to see everyone on board survive. A crash like no other, the image in which most of the people stood on the wings of the slow-sinking craft demonstrated a surefire miracle, God’s hand of protection, to say nothing of the captain’s glider skills. And strangely enough, the people looked as though they were standing on water.

The whole ordeal seemed surreal, almost textbook-like, right out of crew training: The impossible ditching where everyone survives.

In the days that followed, one “Today Show” broadcast featured a self-proclaimed born-again Christian woman who gave accounts of people praying, even the flight attendants. This touched my heart immensely because it was so personal. As a flight attendant with US Airways for 16 years, I prayed over many airplanes and passengers. And I know prayer works, even in the workplace. It touches the heart of God. It evokes lifelines of miracles.

I have been in four airplane emergencies myself, where I wasn’t sure what the exact outcome would be. But I knew the Lord was with me no matter what. And in the instances where all I had was God and, as I looked before me, a whole lot of people whom I might have to save and rescue, God became my closest confidant, my most trusted friend and my strongest rock. I saw many miracles. And I knew others were praying, like those who watched on television, including my parents during one such occasion. And my cohorts who prayed in prayer groups, Bible studies and prayer chains in US Airways' offices and break rooms.

Awesome isn’t it—the power and love of God in action!

Who's praying in your office? What prayer points has God given you? What miracles do you and those around you need? How about your company? God is surely big enough and knows just how to bring you in safely. Will you trust Him? Will you let Him guide you and direct your path? Is He your rock?

This morning I just really was touched by this story.The news
media is always on top of things.But as you and I know Our Gracious
God is always ahead of us all. The passengers on flight 1549 lives
will never be the same.The most touching part of this story it looked like the passengers were standing on water.They really could have been..
