I don't understand "Why" God?
I went to a funeral on Friday of someone who used to be in our Church in Dalton. We knew the family and it was important for me to be there. The message was challenging and I am sure that many people left feeling the need to get some things in order. Funerals can be like that - the important things in life become clearer & the silly things truly seem petty.
However, what happened on Friday night is what I don't understand. One of the sons (of the guy who passed away) came out from England to attend the funeral - leaving his wife and a 10 day old son behind. On Friday evening, he was killed in a car accident. Can you understand that? On the day of his dad's funeral, he dies too! What is up with that? I am struggling to make sense of that all. As if the family had not been through enough & then tragedy stikes again.
I have no answers to this. I know that the Psalms are a good place to look for the answers, so that's where I will go and search. In the meantime I continue to struggle with "Why?"
Live today for the glory of God - it may be our last.
May Grace firmly hold you in the arms of JESUS,
