I’m sure you have asked yourself a thousand times. Why ME? If there is a God, then why did I have to go through this? God teaches us to seek HIM. As sinful humans, our natural tendency is to seek only what pleases the body. In so doing, we frequently leave God out of our lives until we need Him. In John 16:33, God tells us that there will be storms in this life. However, by seeking Christ we come to find the peace that only He, the ADVOCATE, can offer. He does not abandon us. He died for us. Regardless of the sin…regardless of the sin that resulted in our storm….He died for EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US so that one day we may live in a perfect Heaven with our Father! No Hurt. No Guilt. No Shame. No Fear. No Hate.
You see, God doesn’t cause bad things to happen to people, but He does offer us comfort, hope, and a new life in Him when we go through these things. We are on this earth for the purpose of serving Him. Sometimes, that means being shattered and allowing Him to put the pieces back together again, but much better and stronger than before. Like a parent offering a guiding hand to their child, God is waiting to offer His hand to us. Sadly, many of us have to be broken before we reach to Him, whether it be by that of our own doing or by the hand of others. Maybe, it was just our destiny for God’s purpose and plan. Eph 1: 9-14
