I’m sitting at work, coffee in hand, answering emails, and finding myself on the brink of tears.
I can’t bring myself to read any more articles, watch any more videos, hear the testimonies…my heart is already too broken. All of the media covered is striking fear in my heart and sorrow within my spirit. Here i am, in Charleston, living…well…healthy and there are those who are fighting for their lives today.
An 8 year old child died. People died. Injured are fighting death. Families are grieving.
Yet i’m alive.
I dont know about you, but the only thing i can cling to in this moment is the Cross.
Jesus is victorious over death.
Did you hear me? Victorious.
My prayer is that those affected by this tragedy will come to know Jesus.
I’ve heard it said, why does God let bad things happen?
Why would He do this?
There is darkness in our world.
Darkness we embrace when it suits us.
Darkness that caresses our desires and we give in.
When all you know is the darkness you welcome it.
How can you choose to walk in the light when you don’t know where to find it?
How can you choose Jesus when all you’ve known is the beautiful lies of the enemy?
I think that is what happened yesterday.
Whoever committed such a heinous act…chose darkness.
What is our response to this tragedy?
We, Christians, have chosen the light; we know Jesus.
Our goal, our love, our wiring is to show that love of Jesus…to spread His saving grace.
Our world needs Jesus.
& it begins when we start living like Him.
Pray for Boston.
Pray for our world.
