In 1989 an 8.2 earthquake almost flattened Armenia, killing over 30,000 people in less than four minutes.

In the midst of utter devastation and chaos, a father left his wife securely at home and rushed to the school where his son was supposed to be, only to discover that the building was as flat as a pancake.  After the traumatic initial shock, he remembered the promise he had made to his son: "No matter what, I'll always be there for you!" And tears began to fill his eyes.  As he looked at the pile of debris that once was the school, it looked hopeless,  but he kept remembering his commitment to his son.  Remembering his son's classroom would be in the back right corner of the building, he rushed there and started digging through the rubble.    He dug for eight hours... 12 hours... 24 hours ... 36 hours... then, in the 38th  hour, he pulled back a boulder and heard his son's voice. He screamed his son's  name, "ARMAND!" He heard back, "Dad!?! It's me, Dad! "What's going on in there?  How is it?" the father asked.  There are 14 of us left out of 33. When the building collapsed, it made a wedge, like  a triangle, and it saved us." 

We get buried under the rocks of disbelief, worry, doubt, anxiety, fear, and control.

God is always digging through the rocks to find us.

No matter what, he will always be there for you. and He will never give up on you!   

Keep praying... even if you doubt ..PRAY

Joshua 1:9 Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord, your God is with you wherever you go.
