"For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord, "plans to prosper and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."  Jeremiah 29:11

A couple of weeks ago, my family experienced a sudden and unexpected loss.  It has left us asking many questions.

"Why must these tragedies happen?" 
"Why must life on this earth be so painful sometimes?" 

I freely admit that over the last couple of weeks I have asked God "Why?" often.  It is so hard for this human mind of mine to understand why it must be this way sometimes.  However, I also freely tell you that I have not once doubted that God had a plan in this situation.  He only wants good for each one of us.  And, while the road to the good may be lined with difficulties, we can be assured there are many blessings to be found along the way.

Praying many blessings for us all as we walk the roads of pain and struggle in our lives.

Happy Sunday!

I always try to remind myself that it wasn't God who let evil and decay into the world, but us. He's preparing a better place for us than this temporary abode should be choose to accept His invitation.

May the Lord comfort you in this difficult time. That is one of my favorite scriptures.
