The Christian life isn’t always sunshine and daisies. In happening, more often than not, it’s tribulations, hurting, and hardships, which make Bible verses about faith so much more important to cling to. There are mountains and hollows, and sometimes life is just way too much to bear.
My husband got a text on Monday night just as we were clambering into bed. It was about 11 p.m. and all it responded was “Pray large-scale, Andy needs a miracle.”
It turns out that a human who goes to our church–an incredible president in the Christian faith, and a father-god and husband–was out running in his vicinity when a wino motorist hit him, then fled the panorama. Neighbours nearby discovered the impact and hastened to call 9-1-1. Andy was brought to the hospital with a brain bleed, a shattered eye socket, two ruined vertebrae, and a totally obliterated leg.
He was put into a medically induced lethargy while doctors work to repair what they can.
But in the working day since, you can bet your life on the fact that Andy’s family has turned to God’s word. The uphill battle they face, the unknown that is still to come, and the recovery that will soon embark is so much more than any human could possibly administer on their own. But in the same breath, our God is SO much greater than anything we will face here on earth.
Maybe today you’re seem interred by the trials and brokenness of your occasion. Perhaps you’re affection demolished, like God has forgotten about you. Hear me when I add, He has not.
I don’t know why God permits bad things to happen to good beings, but I do know two things 😛 TAGEND
1. God’s heart is violating right along with yours. He hurts WITH you, and he knows your pain.
2. No matter what agony starts against you in this nature, God has already exchanged it. There IS grace in the unknown, even when the unknown feels like your world is crashing down around you.
Turn to the God of all consolation. Alter to the One who caters conciliation that legislates all understanding.
