I’m known as a writer. I’ve written countless songs. I’ve written 12 books. But the events in Orlando have left me without words. My heart aches for the loss of life and for the injuries that were sustained. And no death or injury is isolated – the ripple effect and devastation felt by family and friends of the victims is unimaginable.
So – while my words fail – the word of God doesn’t.
Psalm 34:18 tells us:
THE LORD IS CLOSE TO THE BROKENHEARTED; HE RESCUES THOSE WHOSE SPIRITS ARE CRUSHED. And Psalms 42:11 reads: WHY AM I DISCOURAGED? WHY IS MY HEART SO SAD? I WILL PUT MY HOPE IN GOD. I WILL PRAISE HIM AGAIN – MY SAVIOR AND MY GOD!
My dear brothers and sisters in Orlando – my prayers will continue to cover you.
