Heard this on the radio yesterday morning and then saw it on Facebook that same day, and I can't seem to get it out of my mind:
Sometimes things happen in life that are so horrible our minds have a hard time processing them. And, we just don’t know quite where to place the horrific. Deep inside us an honest question often bumps around our heart.… Where was God?
Where was God when that earthquake hit? Where was God when my sister died? Where was God when my friend’s child got cancer?
Sometimes we'd rather make an excuse for God than be brave enough to actually go to Him and ask.
I know where God was. He wasn't too busy, cold or heartless, and He certainly wasn't caught off guard. He was there each and every time. He’s grieved over the brokenness of this world, and He reminds us that one day He will make everything right; especially those circumstances we can't possibly understand right now.” - Lysa TerKeurst
