Family Finds Bible Miraculously Unscathed From House Fire After Church Service

An Alabama family came home from church to find their home ablaze in January. The fire destroyed almost all the family's possessions, but miraculously, a Bible remained unharmed.

"The fireman comes out, and he has tears in his eyes," veteran Scott Byrd tells Fox Nation's "Ainsley's Bible Study." "And he says, 'You have to come and see this. ... You're not going to believe it.'"

The fireman showed Byrd the Bible, which his grandfather had given him. It smelled of smoke but didn't even have a burn mark on it.

Byrd says he had been going through a rough time leading up to the day of the fire. His 2-year-old daughter, Shelby, was diagnosed with leukemia in 2014, and her chemotherapy treatments caused horrible side effects. She is now in remission.

Byrd believes the unharmed Bible is a message from God.

"I just look at that as God telling me, 'Don't give up,'" Byrd says, according to the Blaze. "And everything that comes at us in life, it's not gonna get us down—because we know that God is by us and we got our faith, and that's something nobody can take away.

"... The power of prayer is amazing. We've been to a point where we didn't know what was gonna happen next and God knew, He blessed us with miracles so many times ... and we'll stand strong—we've got our faith."
