17 Apr Aching Heart
My heart is aching tonight over the news of the tragedy at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia. I was right next door to Blacksburg six months ago. You can read my post about that trip here.
Get the latest news on the incident here.
Folks, life is completely unpredictable. You can be here today and gone tomorrow. That’s what James talks about when he writes, “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.” (James 4.14)
When your day comes to meet Jesus, are you prepared? Do you know Him as your own personal Savior? If you do, is your life in order?
That doesn’t mean you have to be perfect. It just means that you’re living your life connected to Jesus. That He alone is your breath and strength.
What a tragic reminder today is that in a moment’s time, completely unexpectedly, life as we know it can drastically change. My heart aches tonight for those families who are left behind in shock and grief.
