|Matthew 11:28 (NIV)
Come to me, all you who are weary and
burdened, and I will give you rest.
Today I mourn with so many other Americans over the death of
the miners in West Virgina. I also feel sadness for all in Texas,
Oklahoma, and New Mexico that have suffered because of the
wild fires. I know empathy can only go so deep. I have no
earthly idea how deep the sorrow is for those who are in the
middle of these great tragedies. Please know that you can
take your troubles to Jesus and that He will give you rest. I
would like to help you with all of your troubles but words seem so
empty during a time of need. Just know that there are people in
the world praying for you asking God to give you His Sanctuary
and peace. Someday you will see that Christ has taken over
and given you relief.
In the storms of life, O Father, give us peace. Amen
