This morning I am deeply saddened as I think of a family who lost a child in a tragic accident last week. Inconsolable grief is all I can think. I do not understand dear God the purpose behind such pain.
I am weary with my sighing; Every night I make my bed swim, I dissolve my couch with my tears. My eye has wasted away with grief; It has become old because of all my adversaries. – Psalm 6:6-7 (NASB)
Yet I know your love remains steadfast; your grace abounds; your peace surpasses all understanding. You are the Alpha and Omega. We are temporal, you are eternal.
Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life.” – John 6:68
Through so much loss, so much pain, you have been a comfort. You have been my refuge. You have been a fortress against the storms of life. I do not always understand your ways dear Lord, but I put my trust in you.
God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change And though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; Though its waters roar and foam, Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. Selah. – Psalm 46:1-3
