Some people eat good chocolate when they're stressed. Some run on the treadmill. Some take a long, warm bath.
Me? I blog.
As I sit here watching CNN coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing, wiping tears, and wondering how someone could do something some cruel, so hateful, I wonder what crisis we will watch next.
And I wonder what kind of world our children will inherit.
A world where fearful third-grade teachers come to school packing.
A world where little children suffer post traumatic stress disorder after witnessing their classmates and teachers shot in school.
A world where we worry more about mass shootings and bombings than we do possible car accidents or home invasions.
Our world is broken.
Our world is darkening.
Our world needs hope.
Today, as the world changes before my very eyes, I'm finding hope in a Savior that never changes.
The Bible has this to say about Him:
Jesus Christ is the same today and yesterday and forever. *I've decided not to put my faith in the government, in my country, in people.
I'm putting my trust in Him.
Let's pray for the victims of this senseless crime.
Let's pray for the family of the eight-year-old that died in the bombing today.
Let's put our trust in Him alone.
* Hebrews 13:8
