re: ?

Some questions just don't come with an easy answer - looking at the death of Kyle Lake (see previous post,) I've been struggling to attempt to wrap my brain around it. No good. Can't do it - maybe I don't need to.

I'm praying for his wife & kids - that when they go to church, it's not just associated with the place husband/dad died, but is a place where wholeness & completeness can be found in Christ; that the waters of baptism will be a place of new life, & leaving the old man behind.

Enough for now. You are God in heaven, and here am I on earth, so I'll let my words be few. paraphrase of Ecclesiastes 5:2

Once I was young, now I am old. Yet I have never seen the godly forsaken, nor seen their children begging for bread Psalm 37:25

Father to the fatherless, defender of widows-- this is God, whose dwelling is holy Psalm 68:5

One can only speculate in this instance. But it seems as though it's important to realize, in our spirituality, that God also wants us to use the wisdom, common sense, and intelligence He gives us in order to properly function in this world in accord with the laws that He has created to govern it. I think people have all kinds of problems in their lives when this is disregarded. Unfortunately and tragically, this was much more than a minor consequence of disregarding the laws of nature.

Blessed be Your Name
when I'm found in the desert place
when I walk through the wilderness
Blessed be Your Name

The Lord gives and the Lord takes away...Blessed be the Name of the Lord.

My prayer is that the family grows in the strength of the knowledge of the Lord. His ways are not our ways...blessed be His Name.

I too was greatly moved by this tragedy. I pray that none of us ever has to walk through that so seemingly senseless valley.
