Romans 8:31-39
What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: " For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered." No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nordemons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Overwhelmed, saddened, distraught, grieving, shaken; just a few adjectives to describe my last 48 hours.
Yet God still reigns.
He has not changed and will not change.
God is our constant.
He is our stronghold.
In Him shall I trust, in Him shall I cling.
Rain down mercy and healing on us oh Lord, and fill us with your Spirit of love that binds up the wounds of the brokenhearted.
Pray for the Ashley Family who lost their son Josh this week from an IED in Afghanistan.
Pray for Aurora, Colorado.
Pray for broken marriages and hurting children.
Pray for the abused, the hungry, the raging, the addicted.
Pray unceasing until He returns or takes us home.
