Life doesn’t always go as planned. It seems that trouble finds us. If it hasn’t yet, it will. Pain, suffering, sickness, loneliness, and death are all coming. It seems when we go through these things it causes one of two things to happen. We either run to God for strength and comfort or we take it as a sign He is unable to help, doesn’t love us, or is not there.
This is a video from the ‘Before You Say Goodbye’ project. Rick, Josh, and Alisha talk about their experience of when their younger brother was killed in a motorcycle accident.
Trouble, sickness, loss of some kind will come to us all at some point. Life isn’t all roses but through it all we are promised we have, ‘a friend who sticks closer than a brother.’ (Proverbs 18:24b) In our troubles we can go to the one who also suffered. We can run to the one who overcame.
God is ever present, and ever working, even in our weaknesses and sufferings. At times we will very aware of how close He is, while other times we will have many questions for Him. However, in all circumstances, always stand on the hope that He will never leave us, He is always there to turn to, and to give you strength for every hardship you will face. Even in suffering make sure when you run, you run into His arms.
