A few months ago I was in a pretty deep depression. I isolated myself and closed out all of my loved ones, including God. Eventually, I felt so hopeless and far away from my heavenly Father that I could see no way out of the self-imposed pit that I climbed into. I just heard the new Casting Crowns single on K-LOVE Radio. This is the exact kind of song I wish I had heard during that period. If anyone feels now the way I felt then, be encouraged as you listen.
Have you heard about the 2 year old that was dragged by the gator into the water at Disney World in Orlando (which makes this the 3rd tragedy in Orlando this week!)? My heart is breaking for his parents. I don't have children, but I'm outraged by the people placing blame on them right now. This father & mother witnessed this, tried to pull him out, and will have to live with the visual of their child in the jaws of an alligator for the rest of their lives. Rather than pointing fingers, how about some compassion and prayers?
