Miracles do happen. I don't mean in the Cubs winning the World Series sense, but actual, honest to God, miracles. We just don't often see them.
First responders likely see the best and worst that our world has to offer. They experience the joy of rescuing a child, but suffer the heartache when they're too late. We pray for their safety everyday, but sometimes that isn't enough.
Too often we hear horrible stories and heartbreaking tragedies from our first responders. I'm pleased to say this is not one of them.
On March 3, the Coal City Fire Department in West Virginia responded to a fire at the Freedom Ministries Church in Grandview. Fire fighters described it as "so hot that at one point in time, firefighters had to back out." With such destruction, nothing in that church should have survived...unless there was a miracle.
"In your mind, everything should be burned, ashes," they wrote on their Facebook post which has now gone viral. "Not a single bible was burned and not a single cross was harmed!! Not a single firefighter was hurt."
It's a true miracle and one we are so thankful for, especially the safety of the brave men and women who fought the ferocious blaze.
There are now dozens of comments on the post praising the fire fighters and God.
"This is God's word and His will be done," said Vickie Carrington.
It's hard to argue when proof like this is laid out before you.
Thank you Coal City FD for sharing your story!
