Senseless violence: sudden, random, evil. Yesterday’s horror was unfathomable. The grief today is unspeakable. When we can’t understand why, God is still there. Yes. He was even there in the midst of all that awfulness…comforting.
Psalm 34:18 (New Living Translation)
“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.”
“Held” by Natalie Grant
When we can’t explain the unexplainable…when our hearts break for those lost, our hope is in the Lord. He is strong and mighty. He is faithful and able.
