I sat down to write what I am thankful for today, but before I started writing I wanted to read the news…. And now my heart is breaking for Paris.
I wonder so many things about a situation like this. What are these men thinking hurting people like this? How are the families dealing? Did the victims know Jesus? What happens now? So many unanswered questions. So what can I possibly be thankful for in the midst of seeing that chaos.
I am thankful for first responders. I am thankful for the people putting their lives in danger and on hold to help the victims of this tragedy. I am thankful for the helpers.
More than anything though I am still thankful to a God who is in control. Though I may not understand His ways I know he is weeping even more than I over this.
I know my words are not enough for a situation like this. So I just ask that you all pray for these people. Pray for peace. Pray for understanding. Pray for forgiveness. Pray for everyone touched by this. Pray for God’s will be done in all of this.
