pray for japan.

I, like many of you, woke up this morning as if it were just another day. I hit the snooze button five times, woke up at the very last second, threw some clothes on, kissed my husband on the forehead, and headed to work.

But when I got to work and opened my Internet browser, my heart broke into a thousand pieces.

Today is one of those days I wish I could have done something to prevent this tragedy. If only I would have been praying harder, or being more intentionally in contact with my friends in Japan, or something, this wouldn’t have happened.

But remember, we are not in control. And despite the fact that our hearts are broken for Japan and we don’t have the answers, our God is greater than this.

You give and take away.
You give and take away.
But my heart will choose to say,
Lord, blessed be Your name.
