Living just minutes from Sandy Hook has left an impression on us. It is hard to go to church, the grocery store or library and not encounter someone affected by this recent tragedy in Sandy Hook.
While no other human can truly understand the deep sorrow and suffering that each individual person is going through, God assures us that He does. He Himself suffered the loss of His only Son when He voluntarily gave Him out of love, to die a brutal death for the salvation of mankind. Through His sacrifice, we can receive sure hope in the midst of despair, peace in the midst of turmoil, and the promise of eternal life through the forgiveness of our sins. (from Newtown Christian Church)
My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.
