With all the tragedies I have read about this week and the negativity and stress of those around me I have been seeking more and more wisdom on what to pray for and why things are the way they are and where do I fit into God’s legacy. Some days I feel I am up to the challenges put before me and other days I am scared and paralyzed in fear.
Why God lets bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people? Questions many people ask. Have you ever wondered why someone you loved and treated with kindness and prayed for would still treat you badly? We ask ourselves why until we are so lost in the storm instead of looking up and kneeling before the Lord in humility.
Even the strongest of Jesus’ disciples stumbled and we still stumble today. Do not forget that no matter how rough the storm gets as long as you keep your eye on our Lord Jesus Christ, God will see you through with his promises.
The writer of the song “In the Eye of the Storm” was a paramedic for 8 years before he became a hit but in those 8 years God showed him all the things the stories that will forever shape his mind, body, and soul. And through his shape we hear God’s love songs to us all.
The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
A wicked messenger falls into trouble, but a trustworthy envoy brings healing.
Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
