My heart is heavy by the tragedy that has happened in our nation today. As a mother of a college student, I grieve with those parents and cannot begin comprehend what they must be going through. My prayers are with them.
There are so many questions…why, why, why. It makes us feel some sense of relief to understand some of the “whys” but truly, we’ll never know what was in that mans heart and head. The thing that we do know is that satan hates each and everyone of us. He is not discriminate. Mankind in general is a threat to him and he knows that if he can hurt us, he can hurt the heart of God. His ultimate goal is to hurt our God.
As a worship leader, I struggled after the attacks of 9/11 as I picked songs for the prayer services. I know that it is not appropriate to sing upbeat-“happy” songs to a heavy heart. I felt a strong sense of the Lord telling me to ‘honor His Majesty.’ I specifically remember the song “Praise Adonai” being so powerful to myself and our church. At a time when the world seemed to be falling apart, we declared that we would praise Adonai, the One who was and is and is to come.
The song that comes to my heart at this time of tragedy in our nation is “How Great Is Our God.” I hope this video blesses you as it does me.
Lord, bring comfort to the hurting, bring peace to the fearful and Lord bring salvation to the lost.
