HOW CAN LIFE GO ON?

The World Trade Center is targeted and plane loads of people are used as missiles---
and the next day the sun comes up.


Militant groups are targeting Christian minorities and children are being beheaded and all Believers systematically are being killed---
and the next day the sun comes up.


A boy dies while taking the viral ice bucket challenge in Scotland when taking a risky jump into a quarry---
and the next day the sun comes up.


A deadly virus with no known cure begins to spread across parts of the world leaving victims' families mourning their devastating losses---
and the next day the sun comes up.


Throughout history---over and over---we see the same repetition-
seasons of war, seasons of illness, seasons of tragedy, seasons of devastation--
human misery played out in the never ending repeat of unbelievable pain.

And yet--the same God who allows it all---
also causes the sun to come up the next day--
the same God who sees it all happening--
is there in the midst at the very moment of occurrence---
the same God who spun this earth into motion---
holds us all in His hand.

In the midst of the worst---in the middle of the horror---
in the moment of despair---
He is there with the promise---The sun will come up tomorrow.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7

Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
