Man ‘Praying in Tongues’ Finds Missing Florida Girl

An autistic Florida girl who’d been the focus of a four-day search through alligator-infested woods was found alive Tuesday morning by a member of her Orlando-area church.

Eleven-year-old Nadia Bloom was discovered around 9 a.m. in a swampy area near Lake Jesup in the Orlando suburb of Winter Springs by James King, a member of Metro Church, where Nadia and her family worship. Nadia, who has an autism-related disorder called Asperger’s syndrome, is in the hospital being treated for insect bites and dehydration.

“James said he was praying. He said he was praying in tongues, he was praying in [the Spirit], and he went right to her,” Sandra Green, wife of Metro Church pastor Randy Green, told the Orlando Sentinel.

  1. OK, so here’s the question.

    The Lord led James right to her, right? What about the dozens of people who die in the swamp every year? Were they just sinners, and unworthy of rescue?

    Where was God for Marisa Spoonhunter, Jahmeshia Conner, Morgan Dana Harrington, Aisling Symes, Shaniya Davis, Cassandra Hodges, Sandra Cantu, Jada Justice, Sommer Thompson, Mackenzie Cowell, Anna Le, and Olivia Rutherford? Was God too busy to find them? Or were each of them judged a sinner?

    Why did God love Nadia, and say “screw you” to all of the rest of them?

    I’m just curious…

  2. Bill,

    First, lets talk about death.Death is horrible. Jesus hates death. Why did he weap at Lazarus’s tomb when He knew that in moments he would be risen and come forth? Because God hates death always…we were meant to live in the same body forever. Death is a result of the fall of Adam & Eve. Jesus wept because the one who was fully God and fully man knew personally the sting of death and it wasn’t His will, it was our choice. Our weeping is but for a moment, He will restore all things.

    How long does anyone get on the planet? No guarantees were given to any of us. God chose to make you and I, but never promised anyone of us a specific number of days.

    “What about the dozens of people who die in the swamp every year? Were they just sinners, and unworthy of rescue?” Why does it appear as though God choses to intervene in one situation and not another? If God is like me then, I don’t have a God, I have a creation of my imagination, a statue carved of wood and stone. God is so much bigger than, greater than, higher than, I. The best analogy is my dog: He’s happy to see me when I come home, he knows I play with him, feed him, walk him etc but he can’t comprehend more than 1% of who I am and why I do the things I do.

    The Bible says clearly God is rich in mercy, he pours out His mercy and blessing on the just and unjust alike. Giving all of us a chance to worship Him. I could point to me Godly people who weren’t rescued. I could point to many unbelievers who were, allowing them once again another opportunity to encounter the living God!
