When Tragedy Strikes



I’m not sure how people survive the tragic death of a loved one without God. I’ve been one of the lucky ones who has never had to know that loss. And I pray I never do.

Unfortunately, tragedy knows no age, skin color, or income. Poor as well as the rich know terrible loss. God never promised us a rose garden. In fact, He warned there would be hard times in Bible verses like Matthew 5:4 that say Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. This says that we will mourn, we will have pain. And we can find comfort in our pain.

At those times you need something more to hold onto than the person next to you. That’s where God comes in with his promise to always be with you. No one knows this better than singer Toby Mac whose son died at the age of twenty-one. Not only did Mr. Mac turn to God, but he also turned to his music, as is shown in the video below. It’s a touching tribute to both his son and God when it comes to tragedy.

If you know this type of pain, I pray this song helps you also.

If you, or someone you know, is in need of prayer, leave a comment below, and I’ll pray for the situation.
