Why Do Bad Things Happen To Good People?

You know we all have asked this question!  Why do bad things happen to good people?  We are fallible! We can be self destructive!  Becoming emotional hurt can hardened   Our best expectations sometimes fall short of what we should see for Gods outcome.

Today is one of those days when you wonder why things happen to good people?  Well I write this I taken to a road way where ambulances are gathered with medical personnel and Highway Patrol.  The chopper above.  Yes it is auto accident that will claim both victims.  One unknown high on drugs and the other a man who had a huge impact in his community.  The other man of only 22 years who was loved is now gone.

Another scene three girls and a mother mourn the loss of their father who gives up on life.  Tired of the fight of depression takes his own life.  Later that year the mother is claimed by an auto accident and leaves three children now without either parents.

All the people above are missed today and all had impact!  All those of loss still need hope!  As I go forward today and I remember the hurt of loss I am reminded that God has a plan for each!  I sometimes do not understand why things happen but I know that healing comes to of us who deal with the question.  “Why do bad things happen to good people?”   We call on God when we are in need instead of needing him always as a daily companion. I very guilty of this!  We all can think of situations when bad things have happened to us or to others.  As I personally go through today I am trying to let go and allow for healing.

But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish

  1. Most of the time I can overcome what’s happening in life, but recently I was having a “life isn’t fair” moment. Wouldn’t you know I read something in the book I am reading “Everybody Always” by Bob Goff, that night that spoke volumes. I read the following: “But here’s what’s changing in me: I don’t want what’s fair anymore. I want to be like Jesus. It’s a distinction worth making. “ I was like, ok, God. I get it. Now how do I get that mindset? So I’m praying for that very thing. 😊

    1. Thanks for sharing! I was playing with 3 magnets tonight and as I pulled and separated them the force would pull the 3 back together! It made me think of God the Holy Spring and Jesus always the force to come together for us! May God bless you in your time of need!
