Oscar Pistorius Returns to Twitter, Posts Bible Verse, Prayer

By    |   Monday, 14 Jul 2014 08:30 PM

Absent from Twitter since January 2013, Oscar Pistorius went back online Sunday to post a Bible verse: “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted. Psalm 34:18.”

Pistorius, the Olympic runner accused of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day last year, is out on bail; attorneys will begin closing arguments in his trial in August.

Although absent from Twitter and Instagram for some time, on February 14, 2014, Pistorius posted on his website on the anniversary of Steenkamp’s death: “No words can adequately capture my feelings about the devastating accident that has caused such heartache for everyone who truly loved — and continues to love Reeva. The pain and sadness — especially for Reeva’s parents, family and friends consumes me with sorrow. The loss of Reeva and the complete trauma of that day, I will carry with me for the rest of my life. — Oscar”

Along with the Bible verse posted Sunday on Twitter, Pistorius posted a collage of pictures of himself working with children with special needs.



He also posted a close-up of a page from Viktor Frankl’s book “Man’s Search for Meaning”:



His last post Sunday was a short prayer, “Lord, I ask that you bathe those who live in pain in the river of your healing. Amen.”

While admitting that he shot Steenkamp, Pistorius has maintained that it was an accident.

The double-amputee athlete known as the Blade Runner was involved in an argument over the weekend after a man at a South African nightclub confronted Pistorius about the trial, ABC News reported. Pistorious reportedly asked to be left alone before leaving.

The social media posts and the club kerfuffle got attention, both negative and in support of Pistorius, online.
