Around the world, there are bad things happening to good people.
We ask why?
As Christians we know in our minds God allows things to happen, and to others who don’t believe, their whole world is turned upside down when a child is taken. How do they get comfort?
We can tell them about our loving God. We show them scripture.
John 14:1-4 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.”
You can take comfort, God not only loves little children, but He loves us all.
It’s harder when someone is stricken down with a incurable sickness. How do you get over that?
Most people ask why me?
They get mad at God, and say if you are a lovely God, how can you let this happen.
It might be a sickness that is in your family pass down through a genre, it might cancer that we still haven’t figure out where that comes from. It’s very sad when you can’t do anything about it. It’s hard to take comfort in God.
We have to trust in His Goodness!
We will never really understand why God does what He does, to good deserving people. It’s not our place to. Why get angry at God.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
All we can do, is comfort our friends and family the best we can with our love, and share the love of God.
