SIgns of Life

Today is day eight that David has been buried under the rubble of what once was Hotel Montana in Haiti. God is leading people praying for David to verses of HOPE, not comfort. And remember the definition of hope? "Confident expectation." As crazy as it sounds, we all believe that God is sheltering David in the shadow of His wing and bringing him comfort as he awaits his rescue.

And our hope is not completely ridiculous. There are still signs of life in the rubble. Rescue workers report today that they heard tapping in the exact location that David was last seen! Thanks to Dan Woolley's help, the rescue teams know what David was wearing when the hotel collapsed. They know where he was standing when the walls fell. They know he had his infamous backpack on. And in it? Water bottles and snacks.

On Saturday, my hope was all but gone. And in my despair, I felt the Lord bring this song to my mind. It's been playing on repeat every since. "Savior, He can move the mountain. Our God is mighty to save, He is mighty to save. Forever. Author of Salvation. He rose and conquered the grave. Jesus conquered the grave. Shine your light and let the whole word see. We're singing for the glory of the Risen King." If God can move a mountain, He can move the rubble.

People around the world are praying for David's safe return home, and that his rescue will bring great fame to our God, who is mighty to save. Stand with us in confident expectation as we wait for God to move. Lord, shine Your light on David's hiding place of protection and let the whole world see that You are might to save. You are the Risen King and You are worthy of praise.
