In reality…we often don’t know why God permits certain things to happen to us. We do know that evil is real, and we live in a world that is ravaged by sickness and death and sorrow – a world that isn’t the way God intended it to be. Some day Christ’s victory will be complete and all this will be changed – but not yet. In the meantime, put your faith and hope in Christ. He knows what it is to suffer; he went to the cross for us. And because He did, we have hope even in the midst of life’s darkest hours.
If only my anguish could be weighed and all my misery be placed on the scales! It would surely outweigh the sand of the seas.
