Chilean Miners

I just watched one of the miners in Chile being pulled out of the mine after being trapped for 60+ days. 

What struck me...when he went to his knees to thank God, before anything else.  Some might baulk that his family wasn't greeted first, but his loyalty to thank God first and formost was awesome and correct.  It brought tears to my eyes.

Then I began to think and wonder how many people were down there that didn't know the Lord and do now because they were ministered to.  How nothing is by chance, its all God ordained.  Whether we are in prison, in a mine or sitting behind our desk at work.  We have an incredible opportunity to share the gospel and witness to people. 

Then I thanked God for letting me see this.  For this one who ministered to me just now.  Praise the Lord for His goodness, praise our God, He is the One who Saves.
