You would think I could find the right words by now;
but when tragedy strikes,
I know too well,
Words mean nothing when someone loses everything.
So no matter how hard I try,
there’s no stringing together of sentences that can bind what’s been broken.
Life is hard.
And words don’t make it any easier.
So what do I say when I don’t know what to say??
If I’m completely honest,
I’m still not sure.
I just know the One who isn’t afraid to speak into these places of unspeakable loss.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
And I know He’s able to go where I cannot go and say what I cannot say.
In the beginning was the Word (John 1:1),
and this Word is still here.
Doing all the things my words can never do.
So when nightmares become reality
and hearts are ripped in two,
I find myself stepping back so He can step forward.
The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you,
and I will give you rest.”
There will be times when our words just aren’t enough,
but I’m so thankful His Word always is.
This is how God showed his love among us:
He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.
I John 4:9
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,
and we have seen his glory,
glory as of the only Son from the Father,
full of grace and truth.
And my God will supply every need of yours
according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
