Hope Through Tragedy

“Pain is never permanent.”  -Teresa of Avila

When tragedy strikes as it did in Boston yesterday we struggle to make sense of it.  Some wonder,” Why would God allow this to happen?”  Or, “How can this be God’s will?”  Although we will never entirely understand God, the bombing attack certainly was not a part of His will.  The truth is God gives us a choice: people either choose good or they choose evil.  The Word of God promises, however that what the enemy meant for evil God will use for good (Gen. 50:20).  As Americans let’s come together and pray for the families of those who lost their lives.  Let’s pray that in the midst of tragedy God can collectively draw us closer to Himself. 

Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning (Psalm 30:5, NLT).
