TRAGEDY SUCKS and GOD IS GOOD
This week at TFB a young mom died suddenly. She lay down to take a nap and never got up. She was not sick--so far as anyone knows. Just that quick. Yesterday's worship was touched by sadness and a facing toward God that was palpable. One corner of the worship center was in tears, all the while worshipping with arms raised. The next few weeks will be tough for many. There are many questions. Few answers.
My mom died when I was 12. That death has touched every bit of my life since then. I thank God that he had taught me an important truth by that age:
Death is always an evil
God is always good.
We may never see the "good results" of a death. Such hopes are shadows. The reality is that God is good now. He is always good. We must trust him.
