This weeks topic is Why Bad Things Happen To Good People?
I Don’t Know….I am not even going to pretend to understand or try and explain it. I believe that there are just somethings that only the Lord can make us see. I am not trying to be flippant but truly you can no more explain to me why my father died a week before my daughter was born then I can explain why a hardship happened to you.
I have had a few “Bad Things” happen to me and my family-
My Daughter was hit by a Car (She is Fine)
My Son was burned with Fireworks (He is Fine)
My Husband was laid off right before Christmas
I have had strange Medical things happening for the last 4 years
My Mother in Law Died
My Father Died
I could go on I am sure but what good does it do me to dwell on “Bad Things”. Sometimes things in life really suck.
Do I wish they had never happened? Yes!
Did I cry out to the Lord and ask why? Yes!
Do I put 100% of My Faith and Trust in God? YES!!
Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
I suggest you visit the other ladies. They are much more spiritual in this topic then me. I just have to Trust in God. It is truly the only answer I have for you all. I can’t sugar coat it any better.
