Heartbreaking

In light of another tragedy in the US, our prayers go out to those affected in Florida. As MSers we fight battles everyday, and the heartbreak of another act of hatred takes the headlines. I found this video yesterday and thought it was an uplifting video. It is a contemporary Christian song with a very powerful message. I heard it on the radio yesterday and it moved me. I then came home and the video brought me to tears. I hope others can find the same.

Great song. Great post. I often wonder what would happen in our world if people would take all the energy they use for evil, and instead used it for good. Wow! Instead of descending to the lowest common denominator, what if we led the way with kind words and actions.

One of my favorite things are random acts of kindness, they truly are random acts of love. My heart has been changed with my onset of MS, when I came to the end of my life, whereas I no longer had the will or strength to live. My Lord and savior was there to meet me, I turned to him in my darkest hour. He was there to lift me up and give me the strength, courage and will to keep fighting. It's the biggest asset I have in coping with my MS and I don't speak up enough about it. I am going to change that because of how important it is. 8mm out of 9mm of my medulla, where my brainstem and spinal cord come together, is irreversibly damaged due to MS. I shouldn't have the ability to walk and talk at all. My physicans were dumbfounded. I need to make that point again. I need to thank him for literally every step I make, every breath I take is by his grace. I have been to quiet for to long and I no longer will. There are several excellent points to that song that reminded me why he still has me here, on this lost and broken rock. Y'all are as always in my thoughts and prayers.

Allen5280 . Awesome post Allen. If you’ve read many of my post you know that I occasionally get up on my soap box about how good God has been to me but I don’t speak out near as much as I should. He’s brought me out of so many valleys I couldn’t begin to tell them.

In 2002 I gave my life to Jesus when I was in a place so low the only place to look was up. I was in a state of depression and anxiety and didn’t know where to turn. But then I found out who the doctor I needed was. Dr Jesus.

He delivered me from a life of alcohol and drug abuse to name a few. I often joke that I’ve quit more things than most people ever tried. But I give all the credit to Jesus. Without him I would be nothing. With him I can do all things.

This is what we as Christians need to spread to this lost and dying world. Acts like that shooting spree yesterday and many before shows that the devil is doing his share of spreading his evil. Let us share the good things thru Jesus. Sometimes I probably get accused of preaching but to me that is a good thing. Never be quiet or afraid to spread the good word.

My heart and prayers go out to the victims and the family of this senseless tragedy.

God bless each and everyone of you.

Thanks Allen but I take none of the credit. Scripture tells us that if we don’t praise God the rocks will cry out with praise. I give him all the praise glory and the honor.

And I don’t know about you but if rocks start crying out praising God because I didn’t I will know I’m in trouble.😇😇

It surly and truly does need to be, it's so true on so very many levels. Disabled, color of one skin, clothes they wear, culture, it's a humanity issue. I hope and pray it spreads like wildfire!!!!

Exactly my thoughts the first time I heard it and every time since. Everybody wants the world to conform to their beliefs instead of accepting each other for who they are. This has turned into an offended world if you disagree with their way of doing. And it’s 😞 😭.

The word of God teaches us of Faith Hope and Love. Not Evil Discouragement and Hate.

I found myself sobbing this morning as I heard more details. I'm a college professor and the thought of any of my students having to face something like this hurts me.

I understand your feelings all to well. I am a former pilot/flight instructor. I had the very unpleasant experience of attending a funeral for a former student of mine in 2007. I had done his primary, instrument and commercial flight training. He went on to go to another flight school for his certification of flight instructor. Unfortunately he was with a student and their plane went down. Even though his training for that was out of my hands and it was no fault of mine whatsoever. The heartbreak of such a bright young man and his whole future, he wasn't just a student he was a friend. We spent alot of time in an aircraft and I can't help even to this day, if I just would have....
