As much as I like to think that this world is full of rainbows, happiness, and butterflies, the harsh truth is that it’s not. There is anger, hatred, terrorism and evil. My heart is heavy this morning, thinking of Christina Grimmie and the pain her family and friends have ahead. My heart is heavy this morning, thinking of the lives lost in the Florida shooting and all those fighting to stay alive.
Last night, people all across America went out. Just like any other Saturday night. They flooded movie theaters, restaurants, concerts and bars: making memories, living life to the fullest. However, 50 innocent individuals didn’t make it home. 50 innocent souls didn’t live to see the sunrise, and my heart breaks for this tragedy that has occurred. Still, there are 53 individuals currently fighting to see tomorrow.
The greatest weapon is the power of prayer. May we all band together and pray for the lives lost this morning, and those who will surely miss them. May we all band together and pray that God looks over the injured and gives them strength, courage, and comfort in the days to come. As Luke 18:1 says, always pray and never give up.
