Psalm 34:18 - The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
This world we live in, this country we live in, this place we live in can all come to an emotional halt after incidents like what happened recently in Las Vegas.
No one could’ve fathomed such a thing happening while attending a country music concert or any event. So many people were left broken, both the victims and their families.
We know there is evil in our world and people who would push their agenda on others. But how can any difference be made? Was the violent action of one man to draw attention to a cause? We don’t seem to have the answers.
I don’t think there are any that would make sense and bring healing to those affected. We just know we’re broken.
However, there are things we can do to help bring healing. Here are some steps you can take that may lead toward healing; such as taking a break from watching the news on TV, in the article, “Managing Your Distress in the Aftermath of a Shooting,” from the American Psychological Association.
And remember: God is close to the broken and he will be close to you, so turn to him and find healing from the affects of the trauma you experienced.
