oh my god*

Friday was an awful day.

It was a shocking reminder of the evil that exists in this world but also the great love. 

My heart broke for the parents that lost their babies. Oh, how my thoughts were not hidden from God! Fist shaking and all.

Praying mercy in grief, peace in sadness, and grace to walk through today.

*title from Jars of Clay song, excerpted below

Sometimes I cannot forgive
These days, mercy cuts so deep
If the world was how it should be

Maybe I could get some sleep

While I lay, I dream we're better
Scales were gone and faces light
When we wake, we hate our brother
We still move to hurt each other

Sometimes I can close my eyes
All the fear that keeps me silent

Falls below my heavy breathing
What makes me so badly bent?

We all have a chance to murder
We all feel the need for wonder
We still want to be reminded 

That the pain is worth the thunder
Sometimes when I lose my grip

I wonder what to make of heaven
All the times I thought to reach up
All the times I had to give

Babies underneath their beds
Hospitals that cannot treat 

All the wounds that money causes
All the comforts of cathedrals
All the cries of thirsty children 

This is our inheritance
All the rage of watching mothers 

This is our greatest offense
Oh my God
Oh my God
Oh my God
