Country band, Lady Antebellum’s lead singer Hillary Scott posted on her Official Instagram account a few weeks ago (April 2015) about the bus fire the band survived and a beautiful item of hers that survived…her personal Bible. Hillary Scott said that everything on the bus had been destroyed, burnt, and was charred, all but her BIBLE. Wow, what a powerful story and testimony that God’s Word is ALL powerful and will stand the test of time. I believe this was such a testament to not only her fans but to also maybe those who don’t believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God.
“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” -Hebrews 4:12
According to the authorities and NBC news,
“…Lady Antebellum’s tour bus caught fire on Interstate 30 in Garland Thursday morning, en route from Nashville to DFW for the American Country Music Awards at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington…” –http://www.nbcdfw.com/
According to People Magazine she said,
“We just had to buy some new clothes and replace a few personal belongings but that’s nothing compared to what it could’ve been…
We’re all safe and sound my little girl is at home and has no idea what happened and that’s the way it should be…There were too many miracles happening on Thursday, we’re so thankful,’ she added.” -People.com
Read Hillary’s Posts on Instagram here:
“Hey guys, we had a crazy morning on the way to Dallas today. Our bus tire caught on fire and we had to evacuate very quickly. EVERYONE IS SAFE AND SOUND. It was me, my husband, our tour manager, and driver. Thanking God for our safety and the safety of all of those who helped put this fire out and keep us safe. Love you all!!!! ~hillary”
My favorite post is of course about her Bible surviving the fire:
“I just got this picture from the scene of the fire and HAD to share this. Today, when our bus caught on fire we had quite a few personal belongings in the back (where I was asleep before evacuating the bus) one of them being my Bible. I kid you not, EVERYTHING in the back lounge was destroyed from the flames, except my Bible. The outside cover was burned and messed up but NOT ONE PAGE was missing. Yall, God’s Word will always stand. He is FOR YOU, WILL PROTECT YOU, AND HIS LOVE FOR YOU WILL NEVER FADE. My faith is forever deepened because of today. I hope this story deepens yours.” -HILLARY SCOTT OF LADY A (https://instagram.com/hillaryscottla/ )
“The grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of our God endures forever.” -Isaiah 40:8
Isn’t this miracle such a powerful example of God’s authority, supremacy, and His glory? I just love that He is who He says and His Word doesn’t return empty. (Isaiah 55:11) I love how vocal Hillary was and I pray she continues to be bold in her witness and to be a light unto the world.
Isn’t it powerful to see GOD moving in Hollywood? So cool!
