On days like today with the Las Vegas massacre, last week’s church shooting in Antioch, TN, the earthquakes, fires and hurricanes in the last few weeks, our world can seem terribly dark and threatening. Take comfort today in the words of Jesus Always by Sarah Young, Sept. 28 entry…
"When your world looks dark and threatening, come to Me. Pour out your heart to Me, knowing that I’m listening—and I care. Find comfort in My sovereignty: I’m in control even when global events look terribly out of control. Actually, many things are not as they should be, not as they were created to be. You do well to yearn for perfect goodness—someday those longings will be wondrously satisfied." ~ #JesusAlways
O my people, trust in him at all times.
Pour out your heart to him,
for God is our refuge.
~Psalm 62:8, NLT

A prayer following the massacre in Las Vegas:
"God of our life, whose presence sustains us in every circumstance,
As the sound of gunfire again echoes over another American city,
we seek the grounding power of your love and compassion.
As death rained down from above in the dark of night,
We pray this day for the Sun of Righteousness to arise with healing in its wings,
and rain mercy, grace and peace upon our broken people."
