I read about a flight attendant, Joyce Olver, who was supposed to be on the American Airlines flight that was hijacked on 9/11. The day before, Joyce learned she had a broken bone in her foot, which meant she wouldn’t be able to go to work at her recently acquired new job. She was frustrated.
On the way home, she started to talk to God and said, “God, it’s not fair. Why did you take my career away?”
Joyce later learned that the young stewardess who took her place met a minister during the flight.They spoke about God, and by the end of the conversation and the end of the flight, she accepted Christ as her personal Savior and would now live eternally with him.
I read the story of Auburn resident witch, Richard Kuykendall, who says he doesn’t believe in Satan (“Auburn witch makes a plea for understanding,” Journal, Sept. 30).
I accept the fact that you don’t believe in Satan. Isn’t it wonderful how God works on our behalf even when we doubt his sovereignity? I pray a simple prayer for Kuykendall: As you propagate the work of someone who doesn’t exist, may the Christ you said you believe in, the living God lead you to find and accept the maker of heaven and earth, the God of the Bible, and lead you to his purpose, according to the counsel of his will (Ephesians 1:11).
He has a plan for you and it is different from yours, Mr. Kuykendall.
