God makes no sense. . . this side of glory. Try as we might, we cannot reason through His ways. Scripture warns us that His ways are not our ways (Isaiah 55:8). Yet it still jars us when tragedy is part of the plan.
As we look around our world, we seem to find tragedy in the news everyday. How can a loving God allow so many awful things to take place. Because He loves us enough to give us a choice. The poor choices we make He mourns but continues to draw us back to Him. He loves us unconditionally.
While we cannot understand his ways, we trust His sovereignty, trust His plan, and trust His heart.
