Sense of the Senseless...

Senseless murders in Oslo, Norway...
Senseless arguing over the debt ceiling...
Senseless brutal murder of an innocent Jewish boy...
Senseless death and addiction...
Doesn't make any sense.
Not one morsel of it.
Yet, we spend our moments, hours and days trying to decipher why and how these things are allowed to happen.

As I write- I hear two things.
Sirens in the background, contrasted with
Chris Tomlin singing "Our God" on my iPod.

"Water you turned into wine, opened the eyes of the blind
there's no one like you none like You!

Into the darkness you shine, out of the ashes we rise
there's no one like you none like You!

Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other.

Our God is Healer, Awesome in Power, Our God! Our God!

And if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us.
And if our God is with us, then what could stand against us."

As much as I love the song and appreciate the reminder. The Words are straight out of Scripture.

"What, then, shall we say in response to these things?
If God is for us, who can be against us." ~Romans 8:31

God, Thank You for the reminder that You will make sense out of the senseless.

In His Dust,
