Psalm 46

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, 
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea; 
though its waters roar and foam, 
though the mountains tremble with its tumult.

Psalm 46

As the events of today are still sinking in, I cling to truth.
God is our God.
He is our rock.
He is mighty.
He is our refuge.
God hears our hearts.
We must lean on him; not just in times of trouble but in times of joy.

I also cling to my family.
My heart is torn for the mothers and fathers and brothers and sisters and grandmothers and grandfathers whose arms are empty tonight.
I can't help but love on my boys a little more tonight.
God is in control.
He loves us and just as much as we are hurting, He is too.

Lord, come.
