Maybe you heard about that earthquake in Turkey over the weekend, a 7.2. They say 264 people so far have lost their lives and there is still a frantic search effort.
One man in love with his fiancé has spent 18 hours straight looking for his love in the rubble. His 25 year old fiancé Gul, is a teacher, she was eating at a restaurant when the earthquake struck.
As soon as it happened, Eryasar, tried to reach his love, but when he couldn’t he knew she was in trouble. He rushed to find her. He became an investigator, interviewing her friends and colleagues and learned where she had gone out to lunch that day when the quake hit.
Finding the restaurant in the dark, he shouted out her name and persuaded one of the rescue teams to help him start digging through the rubble.
He said, “All I want is for her to live, I don’t care if she is injured or not, It doesn’t matter, I just want her alive.”
After 18 hours of digging and calling out her name, he got his wish. He found her alive and rode in the ambulance with her to the hospital.
Now that is love. I imagine that’s what God does for us when we stray from Him. The bible says He leaves the 99 to go after the 1 lost sheep. Maybe he cries out your name, and digs for you, but doesn’t care how damaged you are. He loves you, just the way you are!
