Some dear friends of mine received news of a terrible tragedy yesterday. Their Facebook pages have filled with people sharing words of comfort and encouragement – even though there are no words that can convey how deeply the family hurts or how much those of us who know the family care.
However, there are words that convey comfort even in the hardest of times and darkest of days – the Word of God. As I was reading my Bible this morning and praying for the needs of the day I was struck by just how powerful God’s Word’s is. By a word He commanded all that is into existence, and by The Word (Jesus Christ) life continues to exist.
Some events literally leave us speechless – such as the tragedy which struck my friends yesterday. So when there are no words, turn to The Word of God!
