I’ve been very sad this past three days. The killing of innocence is hard to accept, or understand. What has happened in Connecticut is truly a national tragedy.

Children have been sacrificed for generations to appease Satan. In days of old, babies were offered to pagan gods as sacrifices. Even today, abortion on demand kills the innocent at a staggering rate.

But when it kills our children in broad daylight, it’s un-proportionally tragic. Because Satan comes as an angel of light during the most religious of Christian holidays, the impact will forever leave a stain on American history.

My eye wastes away because of grief; It grows old because of all my enemies. (Psalm 6:7)

“Oh, that my grief were fully weighed, and my calamity laid with it on the scales! (Job 6:2)

He (Jesus, son of God) heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds (Psalm 147:3)

What can we do? What can we say?

It’s hard to know what to do, or say. The weight of death hangs heavy in our hearts.

So, we will grieve our losses as in days past, and continue to trust in God for our salvation. He alone can heal the broken hearted, and set the captive free.
