there are so many questions. how did the gun man get that messed up? why did he choose that town, that movie theater? where is God in this, how can a good God let this happen? of all my questions, the only one i can answer with certainty is that God will receive His glory in this. i don't know how, but i do know that He uses crisis such as this to bring people to Himself. as awful as this situation is, it beautiful to see the nation come together in this time, to see that even though we are fifty states, we are one nation, under God. and, despite the fact that many people don't believe in God or don't believe they need God, they all call on God when something like this happens. this shooting could have happened in starkville where i live or in jackson where my family lives. it could have happened in washington state where my relatives live or in washington dc where friends live. so, i guess all i can say is thank you Lord for keeping my loved ones safe. and Lord, please comfort the broken, show your greatness, and receive Your Glory.

every blessing you pour out Lord, i'll turn back in praise.
when the darkness closes in Lord, still i will say,
blessed be your name.
