God Believes in You ~ Even if you don’t Believe in Him

The other day I was asked the question via an email, “Why does God let bad things happen?” The young man I was chatting with proceeded to share with me that he and his wife had lost two babies preterm. The young couple has not conceived, since their last pregnancy. I continued reading the note. The young man asked, “Why does God allow child abuse, kidnappings, rape, and torture?”
In his anger, he shared with me a story about his neighbor. “My neighbor was going to seminary, so he could be a minister. While in seminary the student and his wife were struggling financially to make ends meet. During this hardship, his wife fell ill. Feeling hopeless and frustrated, the neighbor and his wife turned to their church and asked for help. In bitterness and anger, my young acquaintance wrote, “The church essentially turned their back on my neighbor and his wife refusing to help them out during their dire straits.”
Understandably, there are two sides to every story. Regrettably, the story this young man knew was his story … “Churches don’t help out their own members, let alone strangers.”
The truth of the matter is this, Churches are filled with people; therefore, the church is not perfect. No human being can obtain perfection, despite trying over and over to reach that unobtainable goal. Some folks may think they are perfect, but that is where their unrealistic belief system takes over their mind.
In conclusion, There are no pat answers that will answer everyone’s questions about why this and why that. In my opinion, it is Satan that allows evil, so he can break down the human being and turn their eyes and hearts away from God.
I would add, even though you don’t believe in
God ~ He believes in you. When you chose to believe, God will be waiting for you with open arms and tons of love.
Life will be easier when God’s love is guiding you through the abyss of life versus -traversing the abyss of life all alone. Notice, I said easier, but not free of struggles and angst.
