God's Will

"For everything God created is good...You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives." (1 Timothy 4:4a; Genesis 50:20) There have been many bad things in the world that have happened, and perhaps in your own life, where you thought, "Why would God let this happen?" God doesn't like bad things happening to people. All of God's ways are good. But, when He gave us free will to choose our path in life, He had to also allow some bad things to happen as well. We are responsible for the consequences of our actions, and sometimes God tests us, and allows things to happen, for our own growth. The good news is that when bad things do happen God can choose to minimize the bad, and also turn it into something positive for His good. There are always two sides to everything. When we see bad things happening in the world we can always pray, asking God to be sure something positive comes from it. The other good news is that God will NEVER leave us or forsake us, and He is always there to help us get through those bad times. For this we can be thankful and give praise. Love, Beau
