From a lost sheep…

29 Dec

I get angry at God when a child is hurt. When a mother is abused. When a father is killed. When we lose a loved one. When we suffer from hunger, thirst, illness and violence.

I get angry at God for allowing a pervert to rape a child. I get angry at God for allowing bullies among us. I get angry at God for not stopping a criminal from shooting his entire family. I get angry at God for everything bad that’s happening in our world. If He really loves us, how can He allow it?

And then someone like Ben Breedlove comes along and changes everything…and I’m ashamed for my anger.

    Ack, bawling, bawling! I know why he was sent back! He’s changed lives already =*)

    Thank you for sharing! I sometimes need the reminder that that there is somewhere wonderful waiting for me when I leave here!

      You’re right, Gena. Ben’s story touched me in way I can’t even describe. I’m exhausted by the mixed emotions I’m going through right now after watching Ben’s message.
