Some weeks it feels like I hear one tragic story after another. My heart aches as I hear about pain and suffering.
We have all experienced hurt, and pain, and even loss. We wonder at times, “why do I have to suffer?”
After losing my Mom, I wondered if the pain of losing her would ever go away? I cried myself to sleep more times than I can count.
It never completely goes away. But through the pain, I have felt God’s peace and his love.
We need to remember, we aren’t seeing everything. There are things going on behind the scenes that we can’t comprehend on this side of heaven.
1 Corinthians 3:12 says, “Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity.’
We only see a tiny part of what God is doing in our life, and many times it doesn’t make sense. Why did I lose someone I love? Why is my child suffering? Why am I having health issues?
Several year ago, I heard this song. It was inspired by those words from John Piper, that there are thousands of things happening.
If your week has been filled with tears or pain, God hears and he is doing 10,000 things in your life right now.
Have a blessed Sunday!
