When judging God is easy
Tragedy hits us all in its own painful way waiting to twist us up in an all-consuming knot where the pain is so much in our face we then judge God. It’s easy to do. But. It’s. Not. His. Fault.
Yes, God is everywhere. Yes, God is all powerful, so why didn’t He stop whatever it was that is causing so much pain in your life right now. Friend, I wish we could pull up a rocking chair on my deck and just sit and talk.
We don’t know why God doesn’t stop some things. But I do know this. He is good. If you have truly met Him you would know deep in your soul He really is all good and He loves you more than you could ever know. He cries with you and while He cries He reaches over and gently wipes the tears from your weary face.
In the midst of your grief you can bring all your feelings to Him. Don’t hide them. He knows they’re there anyway. He just wants you to freely bring them to Him so you can sit and work it out together. Your heart is so important to Him.
If it’s so important why did He let it get crushed? I don’t know. We may never know this side of Heaven why He allowed what happened in your life and in mine. But I do know this. As a Jesus-lover this is a close to Hell as I will ever get. I know someday I will get to walk hand in hand with Him in a Heaven filled with nothing but pure joy and ask Him all I need to know. And, He will tell me. And, I will say, “Oh my gosh. Now I understand. I’m so glad I didn’t turn away from You.”
There will be no more pain and no more sorrow. All will be made right in the end. I will share with you what I have chosen to do and what I feel gives Him much joy. When I am in the midst of my own personal hell, I look up and say, “I choose You anyway.” And I will continue to choose Him anyway. He is the only One who can quiet an aching screaming soul. He’s the only One who can help in ways so far out of our scope. He is only one Who can really comfort the lost, the broken, the castaways, the forgotten.
Friend, you are not forgotten. Never have you been unheard, unloved, unwanted. He gave ALL for you. Every knee will bow and declare Jesus is Lord. Will you do it this side of Heaven and be saved? Will you choose Him anyway knowing He can be trusted to do what is right? Will you give Him everything in your life telling Him to make it His? It’s the only way to live. Ask me how I know.
