No sense in the senseless

Dec 15, 2012Heal from the past

I spent the morning reading through the news stories about the shootings in Newton, Connecticut. There are no words. Just prayers and sadness.

I do know this: evil exists. And evil, if allowed, will take over a person and render him senseless. Innocents suffer in the aftermath. And it makes me mad.

All I can do is ask Jesus to enter this situation and hold the victims’ family and friends. To shelter the city. To provide an anchor in the tragedy. To shoulder the grief and to weep alongside.

There are few words in times like these. Come, Lord Jesus. Come.
