All You Need to Make It Through

GodIsInControlAllTheTime“Why do bad things happen to good people? The fact is, we’re not in charge of our lives, God is and He will allow so-called “bad things” to happen to us in the course of our days. You will find that the significant things you learn in life didn’t really come from the good times and the mountaintop experiences. They came from those times of crisis in which you were more dependent on God. Many of the most difficult days will, in retrospect, turn out to be unbelievably valuable, because it is through those so-called “bad times” that you will learn some of life’s most important lessons. The things we experience are not random events that float in and out of our lives. Rather, they are specific events that have been chosen by God and are timely and purposeful. This means the wonderful, happy times of life as well as the dark, difficult days. When you put your faith in Jesus Christ, you come under His protective care and He is fully aware of everything that happens to you. He pays careful attention to the smallest details of your life and is in complete in control of all circumstances that surround you. He knows what’s happening in your life right now—knows it better than you do. And His presence and provision will be all you need to make it through.”
