Have you ever wondered – does God really care about me? I know I have at various times. It’s easy to believe in God and to think/know that He truly cares about us when life is going well for us. But what about those times that life throws us an unexpected curveball?
Maybe it was the death of a parent, persecution for our faith, a divorce, the loss of a close friend, or the loss of a child, maybe an unexpected job loss, or the loss of a home, or abuse against you. How do you react to these things? Do you still believe that God cares even though these traumatic events happened to you, or do you begin to wonder?
If God cares – why did He let these things happen?
You just lost your job – and now you are losing your home. If God cares for and loves you, why did He let this happen? Actually this did happen to me, but that is a story for another day.
Why does God allow these things to happen? I do not have that answer. Only God does, but one thing to remember is that God is not unjust.
