This week has been chaotic to say the least. As a nation we have mourned not once, but twice as lives have been lost first in Boston and then in West, TX.
Tears have been shed. Cries have gone out to God. Our nation has bowed, but not broken.
So, this weekend, take time to reflect on this week. On the sorrow and the pain of our fellow Americans.
On the innocence lost and the world gone just a little more crazy.
Thank God for your family’s safety. Hug your husband and your children a little more tightly. And lift up to God those who lost their lives, who were injured and whose families will never be the same.
And remember. God has not turned His back on those He loves. He just reminds us:
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9
For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. Colossians1:16-17
