The Devil Smiled

My heart hurts and my prayers are for all of the people affected by the Parkland shooting yesterday. Gun control is not the answer. Heart change - repentance and turning to God's Word, will, and ways is the answer.

I read an article by Tod Starnes today, and he says it well:

"Another American high school has been turned into a killing field. And the nation wonders why.
Well, I’m going to answer that question for you. And the answer may leave you a bit unsettled...."
Read the remainder of Tod Starnes' article at this LINK.

Pray for America, Gail-Friends, and BELIEVE a change will come to this country.  I believe it will happen because people are praying and turning to righteousness.  We are called, as believers, to be light to the world.  That means to teach others to obey the things He has commanded.  Righteousness exalts a nation.  We are to be righteous and obey Him in all things.  This is what will make America great again.

And I was touched by these words spoken about the tragedy:

" In times of tragedy, the bonds that sustain us are those of family, faith, community, and country. These bonds are stronger than the forces of hatred and evil - and these bonds grow even stronger in the hours of our greatest need."

Pray for him because he is under tremendous attacks for his efforts to turn the country around.  He and his family are under constant threat.  My prayer is for his safety and for him to be led in the paths of righteousness and justice.
