Run to the One who Cares

     The enemy is after our children. We hear of school shootings in Alabama, a teenager kidnapping a baby in Florida, and a high school student being raped and murdered in San Diego County, CA.
Our hearts ache for these families. We cry out in frustration and anger. And even in fear. Where do we turn when our hearts are broken?
     We turn to the only One who can make sense of the senseless, our Abba Father.
     Run to the arms of the One Who Cares.
     He is the God who weeps for us. He cares for us. He comforts us.
     “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” (Psalm 23:4)
Satan is on the attack. Now is not the time to give him one tiny foothold.
Ladies, will you join with us in greater resolve to “stand firm and without fear” (Job 11:15b)?
     We are in a spiritual battle for the very lives of our children. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Ephesians 6:12)

Our Precious Savior, we cry out to You on behalf of the hurting moms across our country. Lord, bind up their wounds. Comfort their hearts. Strengthen their souls. Lord, we ask that You call moms together to pray fervently for their children and schools.
