He is faithful...

Sunrise over the Navy Yard

Lamentations 3:22-25
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”
The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him,
to the one who seeks him;

Even though in our flesh, it may not feel like it...He is faithful.

He Cares

Yesterday was a horrific day in Our Nation's Capital.

Who, What, When, Why, How?????

Those are the basic questions for an Investigator and yesterday I kept asking them over and over again. 
My coworkers and I were in complete shock as well as the rest of Washington, DC.  It happened so suddenly and so close to home. 

No words can describe the intensity, the emotion and the uncertainty...

The Law Enforcement Agencies ALL pulled together as ONE union.  We did what we were trained to do and in the end, 13 lives were lost.  And although the media coverage was insane and nonstop, it helped to answer some of the "basic" questions...

But still the WHY lingers in my did in the midst of the tragedy and it did as I drove (home) and it still lingers today.

As I cried out to God in my quiet voice, He said, "I'm still God and I still care.  I am still in CONTROL."

As I lift of the victims, their families, my peers, our community and the Nation in PRAYER...believe it or not, it is well with my SOUL.  I say that because I TRUST in Him and He is still God. 

How do I know?  Because today is a new day and in His word, He promised that His Mercy would be new every day.  He can stop this madness at a moment's notice...however, HE is still in the business of saving lives.  Today is the day to give "your life" to Him.  He is still GOD and He cares.
