A few words that echo my heart on today’s tragedy…
Prayers and how to help:
Another way to help:
There was also a stabbing at a school in China. Let us pray for those hurting on the other side of the world.
What do I want to do tonight? Lock my door and hibernate.
What am I called to do? Pour myself out as an offering and reflect a Jesus that touched the sick, that healed the blind, that ate with the lowly and downcast, that hung out on the other side of the tracks, that loved prostitutes, that showed compassion to the mentally ill, that redeemed and restored the broken-hearted. I have a Jesus that wept and mourned. Scripture talks about fear over 365 times.I will NOT let today push me into more fear. I will not give the enemy of my soul a foot hold of fear.
Let us not grow weary in doing good and shut ourselves off from the hurting world out of fear.
Compassion means entering into the pain of those who are suffering.
Yes hug your own babies a little tighter tonight, but find someone else who needs a hug too.
