Because you're dealing with more than memories — you're dealing with unlived tomorrows. You're battling disappointment. You're also battling... anger!
It may be a flame. It may be a blowtorch. But anger lives in sorrow's house.
- Anger at self.
- Anger at life.
- Anger at the military or the hospital or the highway system.
But most of all, anger at God.
Anger that takes the form of the three-letter question, "Why?"
- Why him?
- Why her?
- Why now?
- Why us?
You and I both know I cannot answer that question. Only God knows the reasons behind His actions.
But a key truth on which we can stand is this: Our God is a good God!
David wrote these words in a dangerous and crazy time:
Taste and see that the LORD is good (Psalm 34:8)>
God is a good God. We must begin here. Though we don't understand His actions, we can trust His heart!
