"Anything that draws you deeper to God is the perfect answer to our problem." Joni Eacerson Tada.

Current mood:  sympathetic
Category: Religion and Philosophy

On this sad anniversary of the terrorists attacks, my mind is overwhelemed with so many things, the friends in my life who are hurting those who are still searching, and for our dear friend Janet, who burried her Son on the year anniversary of 9'11, I can not pretend to understand the pain she must be going through, but I can certainly pray, and I am certainly going to pray.

Early as I was having a time of prayer and reflection while listening to Joni Eacerson Tada, something she said touched my heart, my very soul.

"Anything that draws you deeper to God is the perfect answer to our problem." Joni Eacerson Tada.

Taken out of context to some those words may seem untrue , but when you live through some sort of tragedy or when you grieve along with America over the attacks of 9'11 you realize just how true those words are, and women like Janet Eckles are an embodiement of that statement, I am not saying that because I believe in putting any person on a pedestal, but because God brings people into our lives for a reason, and he can teach us through our grief.

Psalm 42

[b] As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, O God.
2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When can I go and meet with God?

3 My tears have been my food
day and night,
while men say to me all day long,
"Where is your God?"

4 These things I remember
as I pour out my soul:
how I used to go with the multitude,
leading the procession to the house of God,
with shouts of joy and thanksgiving
among the festive throng.

5 Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and 6 my God.
My [c] soul is downcast within me;
therefore I will remember you
from the land of the Jordan,
the heights of Hermon?from Mount Mizar.

7 Deep calls to deep
in the roar of your waterfalls;
all your waves and breakers
have swept over me.

8 By day the LORD directs his love,
at night his song is with me?
a prayer to the God of my life.

9 I say to God my Rock,
"Why have you forgotten me?
Why must I go about mourning,
oppressed by the enemy?"

10 My bones suffer mortal agony
as my foes taunt me,
saying to me all day long,
"Where is your God?"

11 Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.

Please join with me in a circle of prayer for the victims of 9'11 and for all families who face grief...
