Like so many others, I am horrified and disheartened at the senseless tragedy that occurred in Aurora Colorado on Thursday night. I know we will ever understand why bad things happen to good people. My heart and my prayers go out to the families of those who were killed or injured, and the survivors who witnessed this horrific outpouring of foolishness.
I watched an interview with the mother of a young lady named Jessica on 20/20. Jessica was in the shopping mall during the shooting in Colorado just a couple weeks ago and survived. However, she was at the theater with a friend the other night and did not make it out alive. These things break my heart!
But! I know God is good. And as the survivor posted in this blog below, "God is always good. Man is not." No matter what you are going through: tragic loss, illness, financial struggles...we serve a merciful God! This world is full of hurt and sadness, but regardless of how circumstances around us may look you must find something bigger than yourself to trust in. And God is there with arms open wide ready to give hope to the hopeless, father the fatherless, and love without condition. Trust Him with your heart and hurts and you will not be disappointed. I pray you will be encouraged by Marie's story...
