After devastating wildfires blazed through Gatlinburg, Tennessee, a worker cleaning up Dollywood theme park in nearby Pigeon Forge found what he believes may be a sign from above – a sole, burned Bible page.

"I just found this while helping our House and Grounds team clean different areas of Dollywood Theme Park," Isaac McCord, a human resources training coordinator at the park, wrote Tuesday on Facebook. "It was under a bench soaking wet. Talk about goosebumps ..."

In light of recent events, the message from the first chapter of the Book of Joel hit home: "O Lord, to thee will I cry: For the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame hath burned all the trees of the field."

According to the Knoxville News-Sentinel, McCord, 24, showed the page to another employee, Misty Carver.

"We were like, 'This is unreal; this is unbelievable,'" McCord told the News-Sentinel. "When we had both fully read it, we looked at each other – and I will never forget this moment – we both burst into tears. I was ghost-white, and we just prayed. There was nothing else to do."

Two other workers who later saw the page confirmed McCord's story.

McCord said the discovery "is something I'll remember for the rest of my life."

"I wanted to share this message because I think that faith and hope is very powerful in a situation like this," he said. "There are hundreds of people that are displaced and that have lost their homes. Most of these people will cling to faith."
