Can't Tune out

Just about every month, there is a story in some state across the nation that has horror movie written all over it. Details you wouldn't want your 4,5,6 year old to know about until he or she doubles or triples their age. Details that are consumed and spit out by news agencies and their top tier reporters. But every once in a while.. if you have a heart... you reach the point when enough is enough. For most people the relief comes at the end of a remote control. But for the families impacted by those stories the horror lives on. The Police officers gathering evidence and searching for a how and why... a different kind of nightmare lurks and lingers for them. i pray for them. I pray for their hearts and minds that God give them strength, courage, peace and healing in their darkest hour. i think we got a glimpse into that horror this week.. when police dispatch tapes and 911 calls were released in the Manchester shooting rampage.This was a time when the pictures were faded out by the crystal clear sounds of cries for help, .. and insane mumblings. Sound strong enough to bring you past the pictures and into the terror or reality at that moment in time. So it is impossible to not allow some things to affect you.But you don't have to dwell on it.You have a choice to change your thoughts an change your destiny in the process. 

Matthew 15:18-19-- But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man 'unclean.' 19For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.

 Philippians 4:8 (King James Version)

 8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
