One time to say never.

July 16, 2018

In one week we saw two tragedies in our community. First, the devastating July 4th holiday crash of a family of five on Rt 1 and then the senseless murder-suicide of a family of five not more than ten minutes from our church.  In contrast, the story of the 12 boys and their soccer coach who were rescued from a cave in Thailand was so encouraging to follow. From the beginning, it did not feel like a story that would end well. Every week we hear about and even experience accidents and tragedies where even the believer can wonder where God is in all of it. Why do miracles sometimes occur and other times they don’t? We just will never understand while we are on this earth.

What God does promise is that He is never-failing. In Hebrews 13:5 He says, “I will never leave you, nor forsake you.” Quite often in difficult situations, we feel like God has forsaken us. We expect some sort of exceptional miracle to occur and it does not always happen. That surely does not mean God is not there when we need Him. He is always with us and He is our helper” in time of need. Just like His own Son, we experience times of great darkness, but we must remember The Light. We too are called to be the light in a fallen world. So next time you are going through or hear about a tough situation, remember… He never leaves or forsakes.
