Still in Shock!

Last night I watched 48 hours and listened to the story of Va. Tech from the people directly affected by this nightmare. I couldn't help but to cry and then ask
"God why does this have to happen?" I don't know the answer to that but I do know that God grieves with us, he is with us every step of the way. Good times, bad times, all of the time; many forget that. If you are a believer then every thing you do from that point on Jesus is with you and while I know sometimes it seems we are all alone in our suffering, he is there to pull us thru. I pray that the friends and families of the teachers and students at Va. Tech will feel our prayers surrounding them and that they will believe that Jesus is always there for them. I was listening to a song and wanted to post the lyrics here:

Kutless - Strong TowerFrom the album Strong Tower
When I wonder through the desertAnd I’m longing for my homeAll my dreams have gone astrayWhen I’m stranded in the valleyAnd I’m tired and all aloneIt seems like I’ve lost my wayChorus:I go running to Your mountainWhere Your mercy sets me freeYou are my strong tower, shelter over meBeautiful and mighty everlasting KingYou are my strong tower, fortress when I’m weakYour name is true and holyAnd Your face is all I seeIn the middle of all my darknessIn the midst of all my fearYou’re my refuge and my hopeWhen the storm of life is ragingAnd the thunders all I hearYou speak softly to my soulChorus:Now I’m running to Your mountainWhere Your mercy sets me freeYou are my strong tower, shelter over meBeautiful and mighty everlasting KingYou are my strong tower, fortress when I’m weakYour name is true and holyAnd Your face is all I seeAnd Your face is all I seeYeah, Your face is all I seeChorus: (2x’s)
