A family in Alabama returned from church to find their home engulfed in flames earlier this year. While the flames destroyed most of their possessions one item made it out unscathed.

The fire took place in January, but homeowner Scott Byrd has been sharing recently how the family has seen God at work since that day.

The family appeared on a Fox News television show recently. Byrd tells the host of the show, "The fireman comes out [of the home] and he has tears in his eyes, and he says, 'You have to come and see this ... you're not going to believe it.'"

"I just look at that as God telling me, don't give up."

Byrd says at that point in the family's life they had been facing one struggle after another. In 2014, his two-year-old daughter Shelby was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia and the chemotherapy treatment she needed came with devastating side effects.

"It got to her brain, she couldn't walk, she couldn't talk, she had to learn how to potty train again," says Byrd.

After a long battle with the illness and a prognosis that she'd never recover, Shelby is now in remission in what the Byrd family describes as the first of many miracles they'd experience.

As he followed the firefighter Byrd says he couldn't think of what might have survived the fire. "You know, what could it be, there's nothing left but charcoal and sticks."

The firefighter showed him the Bible given to him by his grandfather. The Bible was in perfect condition without a single burn mark.

"I just look at that as God telling me, don't give up. 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 cake take away," he says.

"The power of prayer is amazing," Byrd reiterated. "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."
