By: Gospel Xpress Magazine- Angela Coufal
The letter reads as follows:
To NIU and the families of the victims,
On behalf of Gospel Xpress Magazine,
There is no perfect thing to say in situations like these. There are so many heart wrenching things that happen in this world and just when we think it will never happen to us, it does, and it takes us by unfortunate and terrible surprise. Life can change so fast, in a split second and this is why we must live every day like it’s our last and know that consistency is only found in Christ Jesus.
We know that there is no easy way to handle this terrible tragedy, but we do believe that time heals and that faith in God can give all the strength needed to rise above the pain.
Our hearts go out to Northern Illinois University, for we know this instance will forever change the course of the university and more personally, we are sending up prayers for those with injuries and for the families that have lost a loved one.
Though we cannot fully understand what those whom are directly affected are going through, we know it is a very difficult and trying time. We are truly saddened by the loss of lives and we encourage those devastated by this tragedy to lean upon the Lord above.
“But those who hope in the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not grow weary, they shall walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31
Gospel Xpress Magazine will be unceasingly praying for NIU and the families of the victims.
The Gospel Xpress Family
