Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
Happy Monday! This morning the world woke up to another deadly mass shooting. Although this event occurred many miles away from me, people I know and love were impacted.
So, you may ask, how can I tell you something good today, when so much bad has taken place? How can we teach our children to be safe, without giving them great fear? You may even say, you have no idea what it was like. I was there. I saw the fear in their eyes and those who were trampled. My heart was pounding. I was afraid for my life. I watched a loved one die. We were there to have fun. Who knew?
You are right. I have no idea and cannot even imagine. This morning I prayed that God would allow me to be a comfort to those who have watched, experienced and fear these types of brutal attacks. In my opinion, the less said about the attacker, the better. Nothing anyone says will ever make us feel better about what happened. Instead, let’s celebrate the heroes. The people who were there, gave their lives or survived, helped others and continue to look for ways to make the world a better place in Las Vegas and all around the world are the heroes. The good news is, there are more heroes than attackers. The best news is Christians are never alone. They walk with God by their side every hour of every day. If you are not a Christian and would like to learn more, or if you would like to request prayers, let me know.
Today, let’s celebrate all heroes! God bless you!
