DESTRUCTION

My heart breaks for the devastation and loss of life.
I see the pictures of homes flattened for miles
And wonder how anyone in those homes survived.
I think about the brave teachers who comforted the frightened while covering up their own fears.

I pray for the families of the 24 children whose bodies were found in part of a flattened school.
I hug my children and tell them I love them.
These parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles only grieve with empty arms.
The ones still searching long for hope that their lost ones will be found alive.
The pain, the hurt, the suffering.
People crying to God for comfort and help.

Do we wonder why such devastation happens in our world?
That innocent lives are taken and families torn apart.
Is this how communities come together seeking God for guidance?
God received those 24 children with open arms.
They are in His tender loving arms.
They will never hurt or want anything ever again.
They are with the Loving Father who will protect them from evil.

The ones left on earth comfort each other.
Believing, hoping and trusting.
We support each other and pray that God will keep all evil from our doors.
God sees this devastation and it grieves Him.

Just like when man leaves Him out of their lives it grieves Him.
He created a world without sin but evil creeped in.
He created man in His own image but man rejected Him.
He sent His only Begotten Son to die for our sins but the world crucified Him.
Even in all this destruction, God is still in control and He heals.
Trust Him, Believe in Him, Walk with Him

Heartfelt and inspired, I really felt this one...in Truth.

"The ones left on earth comfort each other.
Believing, hoping and trusting.
We support each other and pray that God will keep all evil from our doors.
God sees this devastation and it grieves Him"

Agreed, Eagle, heart wrenching, yet we understand that God knows and DOES care, and He is still in control. Trust, believe, and walk with and in Him. That does sum it up in total.

Beautiful piece at the right time. Prayers need to continue for those touched by this tragedy. How easily and quickly we sometimes forget.
