When Life Gives You Lemons...

Sometimes life is tough. Everything can be going well and then suddenly... BAM!... a family member is really sick, a friend had been in an accident, you're struggling with something huge, or some other major tragedy has happened. And you're sitting there thinking, where's God??

Why is it that we always jump to blame God for everything bad that happens in life? I guess it seems so easy... we can't see Him, and therefore we believe that there will be no retaliation for using Him as a scapegoat.

It is a really strange phenomenon. The Bible is full of examples of how much God loves us, how he knows how when a sparrow falls and that we are far more precious than any sparrow. He knows what is in our future and has a plan for us, no matter how dark things seem right now. I love the hymn
