MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Sept. 10, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- Celebrate Your Faith (CYF) a religious jewelry and inspirational gifts company, remembers 9/11 and celebrates the National Day of Encouragement on September 12. CYF created a blog to communicate with our community for the encouragement of one another.
"The tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks conjures up many memories and emotions in the hearts of every American and those around the world," says Jennifer Reitsma, Director of Outreach at Celebrate Your Faith. "It was a day where we saw unprecedented attacks on our homeland. It reminds us to stand on the scripture, 'God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.' Psalm 46:1"
In the wake of 9/11/2001, many in our nation turned to God for comfort and solace. It was an "awakening" of sorts for many people. And so it is appropriate that after we pause to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in those attacks, that we turn to our family, friends and neighbors and offer encouragement for the future.
"So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing." 1 Thessalonians 5:11 NLT
"And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near." Hebrews 10:25 NLT
As we reflect on the events of 9/11/2001 and everything that has happened as a result of those attacks, we need not tremble in fear or be anxious about the future when our trust is in the Lord God.
"The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence." 2 Samuel 22:3 KJV
"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord." Psalm 33:12.
Let this Day of Remembrance followed by the National Day of Encouragement be a renewed call to prayer for our nation, our state, our city and our neighbors. Let it also be a call to prayer for our troops serving both at home and around the world. May God bless each one of you, and may God Bless America! celebrateyourfaithblog.com, www.911memorial.org
