These last few days the news has been filled with information about the three women who were abducted ten years ago in Cleveland.
Over the last ten years their families have held vigils on the anniversary of the days they went missing praying that this day would come. They have searched the neighborhoods over and over. The land fills have been combed for remains yet they found nothing.
There was a moment when one women broke free from her bondage and fled next door for help. She never gave up hope this day would come neither.
I have been amazed by the joy the community has shown. I am taken back by the fact that these families prayed diligantly that their loved ones would be found alive. I put myself in their shoes and I am not so sure I would still have hope after all these years.
The man that helped this woman call the police was on the news this morning and he was so humble. He teared up when they called him a hero for doing what he did. He said “I did what anyone else would have done. There’s nothing special about me.”
God has used this man, someone very simple to display humility in its purest form. He has used these families, who are people just like you and I to display hope.
America sits back and watches God’s handy work on every channel. I hope they see it for what it is. God is using a very terrible situation to show His power.
Over the next few days, I am sure we are going to be shown the details behind what happened to those women these last ten years. I hope that everyone takes a moment to hug their loved ones and thanks God for his goodness in their lives. I hope that none of us ever have to go through what these women have but I am glad that it ended the way it did.
Praise to you God!
