Encouraging Words April 15, 2013

“When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Essayist and Poet


I found this quote especially applicable this week as we seem to be hearing about one tragedy after another in our country.  It’s hard to write about encouraging words without sounding trite at times like these, but we really do have to remember that God is always with us during these times. And to remember that it isn’t God that brings on these tragedies, sin and the choice of Adam and Eve for us to have to live with the consequences of sin is what makes mankind’s behavior so awful at times.


But God did promise that He would be by our sides during these times and we can see His work among the hundreds of good people who help those hurt or injured and among the prayers that so many of us are pouring upon all those victims in these tragedies.  Please keep praying for our country.
