Tears. Prayers. The entire nation weeps.

Another senseless massacre. The gunman opens fire inside of Sandy Hook Elementary. Little kids saw things they never should have seen. Young parents and teachers too. So many executed for no reason.

How could this happen again?

So sad.. so shocking and tragic, a whole classroom dead...

..20 children among 28 dead. Particularly heinous! They were 'lil kids and it's only 11 nights from Christmas! How will their crushed families get through this season when all those gifts are left unopened under the trees?  

Pure evil, such needless pain - unimaginable!!!

And why do they keep putting the names of the killers on TV....when more will only lust after this sort of fame? They'll get pain and shame non-stop.

Comfort the crushed in spirit, the brokenhearted, the hurting and the wounded, Lord. Show us who we can help, as your body. "Now we exhort you, brethren… comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak.." Paul, (1 Thess. 5:14).

All the wrongs will be righted one day at the final Judgment. All the tears will be wiped away. The Lord is there and ready to bring His comfort to all those who are grieving now in Connecticut.

Man, so sad.. I just learned of that horrific shooting-slaughter at the elementary school in Connecticut with 28 dead, Including 20 little children. No words really. I don't think they've even discovered the motives of the shooter from couple days ago at that other shooting yet! Our prayers go out for those dear family members and the mega-shocked co-workers as they all are still trying sift through the details just to learn which loved ones have been lost.

I really don't get stuff like this.. stupid senseless killing. 

Our hearts are so heavy today, but together our hope is in our Savior, Jesus Christ.

P.  Lord, please be there to hold each of those in shock.. brokenhearted, hurting family members and friends in CT...in Christ's Name. Minister peace to their minds. They really need you bad. More grace Lord, pour out your Spirit and minister during this time. Amen.

"On the cross, we sufferers see that God now knows too what it is to lose a loved one in an unjust attack." ~ Tullian Tchividjian

Let’s pray and continue to pray for these parents. How will it be this week when they're seein' empty little shoes laying around the house that will never be worn again, or when there'll be empty chairs at the breakfast table?

This type of thing keeps happening and God just weeps with all those crushed inside. I'm lookin' at the words of Jeremiah the prophet that addressed another similar attack on children. "A voice was heard in Ramah, Lamentation, weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, refusing to be comforted, because they are no more." (2|18mat).

Our Lord is right there with those hurting family members, Immanuel (God with us – that was what the incarnation was all about). Cast all your cares on Him and He will sustain you, parents.

And I believe those little children are there with Him, never to be wronged or hurt again. I get those ideas from the Bible. And Jesus will bring His comfort to us as well as we put our trust in Him. 

Christ said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these" (19|14mat). And when Jesus voiced these words, He just wanted to love them, to hug them, to protect them, to help each child as best He could. He still does.

But these little kids were ruthlessly attacked today, cut down.. and this shooter will now face eternal consequences for the choices made. This wasn't at all God's fault. He didn't will this at all. He hates all destructive murdering and murderers like the one who killed my little sister years ago will be judged by Him.

And these children have now come to Jesus in different way their parents could have never foreseen and they are in heaven - it belongs to such as these. Makes me so want to be there to help somehow. You too I'm sure.
