why do bad things happen?
Why does God-All powerful, all knowing, able to do as he may with any situation and circumstance…Why does He let bad things happen?
Maybe the struggles, pain, natural disasters, etc are God's megaphone to call out to a deaf world.
Sometimes pain, death, and storms in our lives wake us and force us to confront ourselves and turn our eyes to God.
We live in a easy go, going through the motions, smooth culture sometimes and when things go well,
we tend to forget about God.
But God wants us.
He wants to have that intimate relationship with us.
He wants to talk with us.
He wants our hearts to join on a daily basis.
So maybe you're going through some struggling times right now….
well, maybe, God is trying to get your attention.
Maybe God is trying to lift your eyes to focus on Him…
We can't control the future.
We can't make bad things not happen.
His word says, "When troubles come…" not If troubles come.
Troubles will come…
And we can't control that but what we can control is how we react.
We decide each moment how we will embrace the world around us!
I'm going to say that again.
WE DECIDE EACH MOMENT HOW WE WILL EMBRACE THE WORLD AROUND US.
and how we will step back, counter and lift our eyes to Jesus when the world tries to throw that left hook.
Take heart today.
Lift your eyes and see where your help will come from.
