but God?

How could a God in heaven let all these bad things happen?

How is it so easy to lose the people you once called your "best friend"?
Does God not realize how hurtful that is? Does He not know how hard it is to find real people? How hard it is to open up...

How could God let my friends be in a car accident that killed someone?
Does God not realize how traumatic that is? What about the person's family?

How could my friend's brother try to commit suicide?
Does God not realize how devastating that is? Why didn't He stop it?

Rejection. Loneliness. Sadness.
and why..does it all hurt..so much

but God.

Something I've found to be very true during these last couple of months has been this:
We are human and that means we get to make our own decisions that result in a consequence. And sometimes those decisions aren't the best ones. but God. He can give purpose and meaning to every situation.

He sees every tear and He delicately and strongly holds them. He sees every fear and He sends His angels to help us.

He can't control our moves, but He doesn't want us to have to carry the weight of anything on our own. He already sent Jesus for that.

And when we don't know what to say... When we don't have words... it's okay because

"the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words." - Romans 8:26


with much love,

Galatians 2:16Yet we know that a person is made right with God by faith in Jesus Christ, not by obeying the law. And we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we might be made right with God because of our faith in Christ, not because we have obeyed the law. For no one will ever be made right with God by obeying the law
