Glenn is calling it a miracle and it’s hard to see it any other way. A listener to the radio program who has been out of work and recently saw the love of his life leave him was about to commit suicide. They wrote one last email to Glenn, explaining that he just couldn’t fight it anymore. What happened next may have just been a miracle.
On any given day, Glenn gets hundreds and sometimes thousands of emails. But yesterday during the radio show, a staff member who was monitoring his account got a shocking note:
I am sitting in my running car right now, the garage closed. I'm done. No job, no prospects. Love of my life just left me. I can't get past that too.
Thank you for getting me through a lot of things and getting me through to this point. You have saved me on more than one occasion. I don't want to be saved anymore. I don't want to even try anymore.
God, please forgive me.
Upon receiving the email, the staff reached out to Glenn's security firm and the local police. About half an hour, the local police let them know that the man was alert and with the medical team.
"A miracle. And I say this to the individual that did it. You say you don't want to be saved, but for that to happen, it was a full-fledged miracle because there are days that people don't check my e-mail, and for your e-mail to come in while someone was checking and them to open your e-mail is nothing but a God thing," Glenn said.
Glenn encouraged the man who wrote the note to find out why everything fell into place in such a way for him to be saved, and that he clearly was saved for a reason.
"You've got something to do. Find out what it is, my friend," Glenn said,
"I would ask the audience to keep this nameless individual in Ohio in your prayers," he added.
