Stories of school shootings, bus crashes and multiple innocent deaths on a Toronto sidewalk have our minds left bewildered. In moments like these, we search for answers to it all. Some, I believe, go even deeper than that in search of answers to life itself.
It can almost be certain that at least a few of the family members and friends of the victims have reached out to God in their darkest hour. It is possible that some may even have had their lives changed forever as they looked to the Heavens. That one they call the Savior, Jesus Christ, was there to meet them with outstretched arms as they cried themselves to sleep.
The stories of these people who have had a 180 degree turn around are not posted in the papers or talked about on the evening news. This world has never been very comfortable with those who fall in love with God, preferring to write them off as “kooks.”
While there certainly are lots of “kooks” who follow other “kooks” within man-made religion, Jesus Himself can never be accused of being a “kook.” He is the One who brings peace into hearts that can’t make sense of this mixed up world.
This is a song that the Lord gave to me in 2015 (click here). It sums up how I feel in those sad moments when the world tries to take our breath away.
