When Bad Things Happen
We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28, NIV

Why does God let bad things happen to good people? to innocent people? to children? to me?

Sometimes His ways seem so hard to understand!

In Romans 8:28, Paul wrote to reassure believers who lived in a city dominated by Nero, a madman with absolute power. He wrote encouragingly, "We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."

Phrased another way, Paul was reminding the children of God they can be confident that . . .

all things work together for good,

brokenness leads to blessing,

death leads to life,

and suffering leads to glory!

So when bad things happen, just trust Him!

Blessings,

Directions for Life
Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with the whole heart!

Psalm 119:2, NKJV

God as our Creator has specific directions for our lives. If we live according to His directions, our lives work - we are blessed, and we experience life the way it was meant to be lived. If we ignore or reject His directions, we do so to our own detriment and experience much less than He intended.

All around us are

broken homes,

broken hearts,

broken hopes.

But God never intended us to be broken. He did not just create you and me, plop us down on Planet Earth, and say, "Happy birthday! Now you can guess your way through life." Instead, He has given us directions, which form a pattern that will prevent breakage of our lives and will help to mend the brokenness already present if we follow them.

So . . . open the Creator's manual for life - the Bible - and follow His directions.

Blessings,



Anne Graham Lotz
