Even in times of great loss and sadness, the Lord is still with us. We should remember that truth that this church learned.

From Breitbart. A fire devastated a church in Texas on Friday, but there was one thing the blaze failed to destroy.

Join others crying out to the Lord day and night.


The fire at Balsora Baptist Church in Bridgeport consumed the building, according to the Wise County Emergency Services Department No. 2, and when the flames died down, one symbol was left standing tall, Fox News reported Monday.

The department said, “The fire took the structure, but not the cross. A symbol that the building was just that, a building. The Church is the congregation, and where 2 or more gather, there He shall be also….”

Video footage showed the flames crawling over the church’s roof as firefighters stood at a safe distance, watching the scene unfold:

In a social media post on Friday night, Balsora Baptist Church announced it would hold a gathering on Sunday at 10:00 a.m. and asked attendees to dress cool and bring a lawn chair….

“We praise God that He still answers prayers. We look forward to all He’s going to do at Balsora Baptist!!!” it [read]….

Lord, thank you for this pastors words. Thank you that they are meeting at the cross left standing. I pray you will meet with them with Your Shekinah glory and expand their faith, joy and hope in what You, the Almighty God can, and will do according to Your word that ‘all things work together for good to those who love You and are called according to Your purpose’.

May God bless you with a temporary shelter to comfort you during worship this summer. Let the new church behold the glory of God and grow into an even larger space for more worshipers than ever before, in God’s timing.

Father, comfort Your people in the loss of the building where they worshipped. Use this situation to bring glory to Yourself with a double blessing for the people. Grant them their heart’s desire at this time. Amen.
