Continuing, Although Wounded

There was turmoil in my heart this weekend, hearing about the senseless killing close to home. My soul was angry towards the person who took innocence lives, and deep sadness surrounded my heart for those who were affected.

I know many of you are asking this question "Why does a loving God let bad things happened." This heartbreaking news took me back a year ago, when I lost two beloved brothers within months apart. I did not have a chance to grieve for one brother, when I received the report of another brother dying unexpectantly. My pain and suffering at that time, did not add up, to why a God who loves me, would allow this to happen. I wanted answers!

The truth my friends, is that we live in a world that is marred. Therefore, difficulties, disappointments, pain and sufferings are bound to cross our path. And we may never know all the reasons why God allowed it. But we can be assured that suffering is not something that God chose for us. Rather a choice that man chose himself that affect every aspect of life consequently.

You and I can be confident that God will not let any "bad thing" happen that will not optimally bring more good than destruction, but we must learn to trust him. Proverbs 19:21 states, "There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless, the counsel of the Lord shall stand."

That scripture is an encouragement to us, that though people may be motivated by evil, God is ultimately in charge, and he will make things right for us. Our only responsibility during our suffering is to trust him for all the outcomes.
