This Fallen World...

Sometimes, things happen that make you wonder why God would ever allow them to. The fact of the matter is that we live in a fallen world, where free will has been granted to humanity. God wishes us to come to Him on our own and out of love. I must remember this-- as I deal with the emotions that I and others have around my boss's illness that has left him unable to continue working and may soon take his life. Somethings are difficult, if not impossible, to grasp intellectually and I must depend purely on faith in the fact that God is in control.

Here are some things I do know...
God is in charge-- and what I think is a terrible thing may not necessarily be so, in His eyes. Because we live in a fallen world, things get sick and die. bad things happen to good people. Apart from God I am wide-open to the ill affects of this world, without hope for redemption. With God, although bad things will still happen, I have the hope for something far better down the road --and the sense of peace and security in knowing that He loves me in ways I could never fully measure or understand. When one starts to think eternally, the events of this world begin to take their proper perspective in the scheme of things. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:7.
