Still He is the ANSWER…

 

To a lost, wayward, messy and confused people…

He is still the WAY.

 

To a people consumed by lies, hypocrisy, deceit, and contradictions…

He is still the TRUTH.

 

To a dead, sinful, depraved, desperate, hopeless, and helpless people…

He is still the LIFE.

 

And we ponder, wonder.

We fear and fret.

We get angry and react… Then maybe respond.

We mourn and grieve.

 

And Still He is GOD.

 

To a wicked, immoral, sick people… He is still Redemption, Forgiveness, and Healing.

To weak, weary, wounded, and withering souls… He is still STRONG and MIGHTY to SAVE.

To the unloved and unlovable…He is still All-consuming, Perfect LOVE.

 

To a sowing in tears,

A mourning in deep anguish,

A weeping uncontrollably,

A grief-stricken, utterly inconsolable people…

 

He is still the COMFORTER, the Keeper of Tears, and Bearer of Burdens.

 

And when history’s careworn pages become so stained by our tears

That they cannot even be read any more in our despairing quest to make sense of the senseless…

 

Still, we search for answers…

 

Still, we ask “why”…

 

Still, at the end of it all…

 

He is JESUS

 

And still, He is the ANSWER.

 

 

 

In the wake of the horror that transpired at Sandy Hook Elementary School…the anguish of soul and depth of despair runs deep…and yet there is Truth and Hope that runs deeper still.

He is still the ONLY ANSWER.

 

Heavenly Father…please do what only You can do in the midst of our brokenness…
