Hold On Tight

I don’t have words,

Just an ache inside my soul

Helpless,

Just like everyone else.

All I can give,

All I have to offer

Are prayers

For comfort,

For a community of support.

An unpenetrable wall of love

To surround those families.

Be with them, Lord.

The unthinkable has happened

Again.

    Such a sad, sad day 😦 I can’t wait to pick my little guy up from school right now and hold him tight. I can’t even express how sad I am for those families. You do them well, Kitt.

    Kitt, So beautiful written, but if there is a God – why doesn’t he do anything before it happen??? It happened in Scotland, 1996 … it happened in Norway 2011. Then we to turn to God .. to give the victims’ families and friends to find strength to go on.

      I can’t answer that question. But I do believe in him. Unfortunately I think that is a byproduct of sin and free will. But I do believe he is there and listening. He’s been there for me through too many good and bad times for me to believe anything else.

        Kitt, I think it’s fantastic that you have a faith and you believe – I know that you don’t have any answer. I believe in something – I believe in people that make things happens, whatever believes or faith they may have. People that help sick, loneliness, hungry and homeless.
        You’re words are so beautiful, sorry for me reaction.

    Love your words here, Kitt, and love how you wear your faith so openly on your sleeve. I praise God that he’s been there for you through hard times.

    He is good and he is love. When awful things happen, it’s natural to ask, “Why God?” I don’t think he minds us asking. I think he’s hurting right along with us, because things like this aren’t in his plan. That doesn’t mean he won’t use times like these to work in people’s lives and redeem the evil where souls are seeking his help and comfort.

    Your “byproduct of sin and freewill” comment is exactly what I believe, too, even if it’s hard to wrap my head around sometimes, I have to trust, because I know God and love him.

    It breaks my heart to think of the pain these families are going through. Prayer is all I have to offer, too. Thanks for the beautiful post.

      Thanks, Jessi. I agree with you… I don’t think events like these are ever in his plan…but if we let him, he usually finds ways to mend hearts, bring peace…and sometimes bring back lost sheep.

      It sure does not make it easy, though. And you’re right. I don’t think he minds the “why’s” either… Sometimes events happen that we’ll never fully understand the “why’s”, but I make a daily choice to have faith. It helps me get through.

    flawless….the music and what you’ve written……God works in mysterious ways. That’s all I know. But He’s there. We may be angry, confused and needing answers from Him over this…Hell, I’ve been there a time or two…but faith (to those who have it) is often tested and forged in one bad ass furnace.
