Why do bad things happen to good people? I don’t have an answer. In the middle of different trials, I will admit I have cried out, “Lord, why did this happen?” So far, I haven’t come up with any answers, but there is one thing I’m VERY sure of… God is real and in control!
Nothing happens that He doesn’t know about before hand. He has a purpose for every experience in our lives no matter how painful it might be. (Romans 8:28) “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord, As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”(Isaiah 55:8-9)
One of my favorite gospel songs…”My God is Real, real in my soul, my God is real for He has washed and made me whole, His love for me, is like pure gold, my God is real for I can feel Him in my soul.”
