Connecticut

What happened in Connecticut on Friday totally wrecked me. I have thought about it nonstop. My soul is grieved. There has always been evil and darkness that exists in our world but this seems like a new level of darkness. The fact that babies were killed so senselessly, in a place where they should have been protected, is something that I cannot wrap my brain around. Being a new mother and seeing things like this happen I see things from a mothers perspective and it is incomprehensible the kind of grief that those 20 mothers are feeling. While everyone searches for answers of why and what should we do I know there are many more questions than answers. All that I know to do in moments of utter chaos and incredible pain is just hold on to my Jesus all the more. Music speaks to me in ways that nothing else can. I rarely post song lyrics here but we sang a song in church this morning and every word was healing to my still grieved and confused heart. As we look for answers I know what my only answer is and his name is Jesus. He is with us. He never fails. Take Heart-Hillsong United

There is a light It burns brighter than the sun He steals the night And casts no shadow There is hope Should oceans rise and mountains fall He never fails

So take heart Let His love lead us through the night Hold on to hope And take courage again

In death by love The fallen world was overcome He wears the scars of our freedom In His Name All our fears are swept away He never fails

So take heart Let His love lead us through the night Hold on to hope And take courage again

All our troubles And all our tears God our hope He has overcome

All our failure And all our fear God our love He has overcome

All our heartache And all our pain God our healer He has overcome

All our burdens And all our shame God our freedom He has overcome

God our justice God our grace God our freedom He has overcome

God our refuge God our strength God is with us He has overcome
