Sometimes the things of this world just seem so much.
So much hurt & it seems overwhelming.
I question God. Why?
Why is there so much hurt.
Why is she having to walk this road?
Why are these children in this tough spot?
I get very angry.
But mostly I just cry.
Because I know God's plans are greater. Because I am in His arms crying about the stupid things of this world. Because I know I actually have no control over the pain my family & friends will have to endure.
And because I know sin entered the world.
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33
We weren't promised a life without pain. The people in my life aren't promised a life without pain and the questions that go with it all. But I know I can find peace in God & they can to. Throughout this life we see the beauty too, we see how God worked things out for our good. We can see His hand in the little details.
Friend, if you're struggling or questioning why someone is struggling around you, take heart, God has overcome the world, and today, in this moment you can find peace in Him.
