In the country of Armenia, in 1988, Samuel
and Danielle sent their young son, Armand,
off to school. Samuel squatted before his son
and looked him in the eye. "Have a good day
at school, and remember, no matter what, I’ll
always be there for you." They hugged and
the boy ran off to school.
Hours later, a powerful earthquake rocked the
area. In the midst of the pandemonium,
Samuel and Danielle tried to discover what
happened to their son but they couldn’t get
any information. The radio announced that
there were thousands of casualties. Samuel
then grabbed his coat and headed for the
schoolyard. When he reached the area, what
he saw brought tears to his eyes. Armand’s
school was a pile of debris. Other parents
were standing around crying.
Samuel found the place where Armand’s
classroom used to be and began pulling a
broken beam off the pile of rubble. He then
grabbed a rock and put it to the side, and
then grabbed another one.
One of the parents looking on asked, "What
are you doing?" "Digging for my son," Samuel
answered. The man then said, "You’re just
going to make things worse! The building is
unstable," and tried to pull Samuel away from
his work.
Samuel just kept working. As time wore on,
one by one, the other parents left. Then a
worker tried to pull Samuel away from the
rubble. Samuel looked at him and said,
"Won’t you help me?" The worker left and
Samuel kept digging.
All through the night and into the next day,
Samuel continued digging. Parents placed
flowers and pictures of their children on the
ruins. But, Samuel just kept working. He
picked up a beam and pushed it out of the
way when he heard a faint cry. "Help! Help!"
Samuel listened but didn’t hear anything
again. Then he heard a muffled voice, "Papa?"
Samuel began to dig furiously. Finally he
could see his son. "Come on out, son!" he said
with relief.
"No," Armand said. "Let the other kids come
out first because I know you’ll get me." Child
after child emerged until, finally, little
Armand appeared. Samuel took him in his
arms and Armand said, "I told the other kids
not to worry because you told me that you’d
always be there for me!"
Fourteen children were saved that day
because one father was faithful.
How much more faithful is our heavenly
Father! Whether trapped by fallen debris or
ensnared by life’s hardships and struggles, we
are never cut off from God’s faithfulness. He
is true to His character. He is reliable and
trustworthy and can always be counted on.
Deuteronomy 7:9 "Know therefore that the
Lord your God is God; He is the faithful God,
keeping His covenant of love to a thousand
1 Corinthians 1:9 - God, who has called you
into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our
Lord, is faithful.
Psalm 37:28, "For the Lord loves the just and
will not forsake his faithful ones. They will be
protected forever"

Yes, I'm happy to be His son; He is a faithful Father.
He makes the impossible, possible and makes a way where seems to be no way.
