Trying to make sense of it all

At times like these, I am at a lost for words. The recent shootings in Newtown CT, has touched so many people in so many ways, and most of us just don’t know how to react. We want to know why, we want to ask the questions, how could this happen again? We want to have someone, something to blame. All in all we want to make sense of it. But more than making sense of it all, we need to allow our hearts and prayers to go out to those who have lost loved ones. It is not the time to make sense of it, because it makes no sense. We live in a world that wants to understand, but there are times we can’t. We may never know why, or how someone gets to this point. We may never know the motives of a heart that can do such a thing. But we can know how to love those who need our love, and more importantly how to pray for those who need our prayers. Making sense of it all won’t change anything. But praying may change a heart, and a nation.

 2 Chronicles 7:14if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.   

I’m not saying this event was cause by our wicked ways, I’m just saying that God’s people at times like these need to pray. Right now we don’t need to make sense of all of this, we need God to change the hearts of those who would ever consider such a thing. And we need God to heal the hearts of those who have suffered lost.

Lately I have found myself in a very odd place. I have been very introspective, but I am unsure to as why. I am finding that Life is a very odd thing. I am, not happy or sad, content or discontent, peaceful or in unrest, but I seem to be all these things at the same time.  I know that my hearts desire is to love God and love people, but I find I do not do either very well. I know that God is calling me to a much deeper relationship with Him, but I feel I can’t get to where He is calling me. I want to be Holy, but I feel that there are to many things that fight against me being just that, being Holy. I feel that I would love to ask Jesus, the same questions his disciples did when they said “Lord teach us to Pray” And I am sure that only Prayer can get me out of this place, that only God can cause my heart to know how to beat again. I want to love life again and only God can cause that to happen, and maybe that’s the lesson I needed to learn. Lately I have come to understand, that if I seek anything more than I seek Him, life becomes unclear and complicated. And you end up in a place like this. You end up in “LATELY
So if you are in this place, fall on your knee, fall on your face, and seek the God of all creation, he will come to you and he will heal your heart.

Love You Guys.

Jeremiah 29:13  “You will seek me and find me, when you seek me, with all your heart”
