John – How He Loves

John 3:16
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 

I’m in a strange season in life. On February 20th after speaking to my
neighbors 26 year old son- who was living at their house – after he was
discharged from the Marines – he shot and killed himself outside
in the street.
I heard the gunshot though I didn’t know that that sound belonged with him until 20 minutes later.
I’ve wondered relentlessly to myself these past three months what the purpose is in me
talking to him moments before his unforeseen death, and though I have
an idea how God will use that – all I can do right now is lean into all power verses
that speak of Gods incredible love for us.This song has been a source of refuge for me.
Imagining that God himself is holding me like father holds his child
when they are sad afraid, and tired.
 

*There are no pictures – just a blank screen. I invite you to close
your eyes and drink in these truths*
