Reflections on Times of Tragedy

Boston MarathonIn times of tragedy I see the face of God in the face of those who daily, prayerfully, willingly, walk out their door into life-threatening danger so that we can feel safe.

Hi, I’m Sally Barton and these are my Reflections on Times of Tragedy

I hear the voice of God in the airwaves through a song or a teaching program that touches my aching heart.  And, through the voices of our Radio Shine’s family…

“I’m actually a police officer and when people run away from smoke and gun-fire, the people I work with – the men and women – we run to it.  Heavenly Father, thanks for this opportunity, there are no accidents.  Father I pray that You continue, putting us in to service today, making us useful in the small tasks and even the great ones.  And, for the men and women in harm’s way every day – the police officers, the fire fighters, all the emergency medical technicians – Father, I pray for their families right now so that they would be the model of Christ to those men and women who step in harm’s way so that when we return home I pray that we would look on our families with renewed hope and love.  In Your Name we pray.”

Deuteronomy 31: 6 reminds us to, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
