Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
Psalm 43: 5
About This Image:
There was a storm brewing in the sky on the day I took this image in Cades Cove. It was coming - darkness, sadness, sin. Today we mourn for 17 people who were killed in a Florida high school. We ask why this evil? How could someone hate so much as to kill innocent children and their teachers? The Psalms are full of why questions asked of God. And like this Psalm, the only answer after the questioning was to hope and trust in a God who is sovereign and to seek the comfort only He can give to a fallen world that hurts and mourns. We look to Jesus who wept for his friend Lazarus and for us and then took the cross to defeat death. We sing a broken hallelujah and offer a a sacrifice of praise (Hebrews 13:15).
