My friend’s uncle died unexpectedly.
Her family was left with hard questions unanswered.
The kind of questions you hope you’re never left with after a loved one dies. The kind you pray you know the answer to long before they take their final breath.
Suffocating. Draining. Wondering. Questions.
What do you say to your friend who’s grieving and broken and questioning?
I didn’t have the answers but I felt God saying there were lessons to be learned.
Pray for those who don’t know the Lord.
Keep praying even when you don’t see change.
Even when you’re weary and doubting.
Life is fragile. It’s here today and gone tomorrow.
When you’re faced with devastation and you don’t have the answers, you can cling to this:
God works everything out for the good of those who love him. (Romans 8:28)
We can’t always see the good – not in the midst of the pain – but eventually it will come.
Because it’s a promise He plans to keep.
Today, if you’re facing the unimaginable, if you doubt, if your hope is gone.
Hold tight to His promise.
He’s working it out.
