After days like yesterday its really easy to ask why.
Why did that happen?
Why did people die?
Why would someone do something like that?
Why did God let this happen?
or some people ask questions like "where was God...and why didn't He stop this?"
Its hard. Its hard that stuff like this happens. Its hard that people are full of hate and can do things that can actually take someones life.
Its sad. really sad.
My heart breaks for all of those people who had to experience that.
But there is good news. The good news is that God is STILL here. He is still in charge. He is binding up the broken hearted. He is healing the sick. He is comforting the ones who mourn.
In the bible we are told that "perfect love casts out ALL fear"
The person who made those bombs, and placed them so carefully...fully expecting to destroy something so special to so many, they knew what they were doing. They wanted to steal, kill, and destroy. Just like satan does with our lives. He plans and he plots and then he carries out his attack.
We have to choose to trust God in ALL things. And to let His love and His peace take the place of fear and anger.
The person who placed those bombs doesn't get to be the victor. He doesn't get to win.
We do. God does.
