20 children.... 1st graders..... have been killed.
6 women.... teachers.... killed.
Unimaginable nightmare. Unspeakable evil.
After the year that Curtis and I have had, I'm no stranger to the feelings of horror at the evil in this world, the evil against children. However, I cannot imagine what those parents and that community are going through. My heart is grieved.
All that has happened is horrific. But in the midst of it all, I am reminded that God is still good. And our good God is still on his throne.
"The Lord has established his throne in heaven,
and his kingdom rules over all."
Our good, reighning God has a purpose, beyond what we can see or understand.
"Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom."
During this horrible situation, this unimaginable tragedy, the saints need to stand up against this evil. Because that's what we're dealing with, the unimaginable evil of our time. And pray. Pray for the parents who've lost children. Pray for the families who lost a loved one. Pray for the children, teachers and law officers who witnessed nothing short of a nightmare.
Come, Lord Jesus, come......
