I had a post topic in mind for today, but everything I have to say seems so trivial in light of the devastation and suffering dominating the news just now. The only words I have are these:
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. (Ps 46:1)
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. (Ps 147:3)
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. (Ps 23)
Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. (Ps 61:1-3)
My thoughts and prayers are with those in Oklahoma and west Texas who are suffering, grieving, and afraid.
