Sometimes I wonder how God handles seeing all the pain and suffering here on this earth. I know that He has feelings because we know he felt anger, disappointment in His people, at one point regret that He had even made man, but most of all we know that God is love, 1John 4:8 tells us, He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
I was praying about a situation and was moved to tears, my heart actually felt constricted with it and then I thought, “Why don’t I just believe that God has this handled? He loves them more than you do, after all He created them.” As I thought of that I actually got up from where I was kneeling (at my dad’s armchair where I saw him praying so many times) and felt the burden lift.
God loves us so much that He gave His one and only Son so that we could be healed, delivered from the things that terrify and oppress us and most of all so that we can have life eternal. I know I have said it before but it does bear repeating, after watchig my dad transition from this life to his glorious day with the Lord I have no doubt there is life after life, eternal life and I will never fear death again. What I fear is living in a world with so many people that are cruel and uncaring. But if I really trust God to care for me and the people that I love then why am I worried at all?
1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
If you have a problem, or if you are afraid then this is for you, God loves you more than you love your self, your closest loved one or your own child and gave the life of His son Jesus so that you could be safe in His arms.
Feeling at peace now I will say the little prayer my parents prayed over me every night, “Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep, if I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take, amen.”
