The world stopped for over two days in October, 1987, for an 18 month old baby had slipped deep into a well and was trapped. The well casing, only eight inches wide, held her tight 22 feet below ground. One of her legs was lodged above her head and her hand was plastered to her face. The entire world watched, held their breath, and prayed as workers tried to rescue baby Jessica.
There was no reaching get through the well. Workers sent a camera down to monitor her while digging a parallel shaft beside her.
As the world prayed for baby Jessica, she was heard singing Winnie the Pooh. 58 hours after she fell, rescuers miraculously reached baby Jessica and brought her to the surface. In the aftermath, she underwent 15 surgeries. Thirty years later, she has no doubt that God was on her side. He comforted her during those desperate hours in the dark well.
In what kind of dark place do you find yourself? Call out to God for comfort. Do you need prayer? Ask God’s help. The Holy Spirit knows your need and will help you to pray. Delight in God’s comforts.
Fear Not. Delight in the comforts of God.
