God is so good. I say this because I feel it, I have seen it, and I believe it. But I wonder if I could say it, if I had was the one who just lost a brother, my boyfriend, or best friend.
My love and prayers go out to those who have just lost someone they dearly love. I am so sorry for your loss--I don't know how to see good in this--but I pray that you will feel Gods goodness, even if you cannot see it. That you will feel His goodness of comfort, support and love.
God is so good. I say this because I feel it, I have seen it, and I believe it. But I wonder if I could say it, if I had was the one who just lost their house, loved on, or city to a devastating earthquake.
My friend is currently living in Christchurch New Zealand and experiencing this devastation first hand. I talked with her last night and my heart broke a little when I heard her recount the horrendous events of the past few days.
Today my life is great, the sun is out, my family is happy--but many people are hurting, and this bliss could end in one second. I could get a phone call that would change everything right now. I hope that we can remember to uplift those who are dealing with great suffering. When I acknowledge the pain and suffering many people face each day--it reminds me that life is all about perspective and maybe, just maybe if we took another perspective we would realize that we are blessed. We are truly blessed and that we should use that blessing to help in any way we can.
Life is too short and fragile not to tell those you love, how much you love them and to support those who need it.
