      Me: I won’t God. And let me just tell you God, Thank You for Everything today. God: You’re welcome child. It was just another day being your God and I Love looking after My Children! —————————– God is great and God is good. We all need to remember that God works and allows things to happen in His Mysterious ways. Seventh point of light: God can bring good out of bad Though this truth is often bantered about in ways that are insensitive to the person who is suffering, it is still true that while bad things happen to God's people, he promises that he'll bring good – sooner or later – out of everything we experience (Rom. ).

      All of Scripture assures us that God is with us and that he loves us. Many of us have known this truth from childhood: “Jesus loves me — this I know. For the Bible tells me so.” With reassurances everywhere, we must reframe our question, instead asking, “Because God loves me, then why did this happen?” Because God loves me.   Harrison’s long-anticipated week at camp was over. On the way home, a very disappointed boy asked, “Why did God let this happen?” Corinne, a real trouper in her new parenting role, cleared her throat. “I don’t know, Harrison. But maybe God can use it for good.” As the days went by, Harrison managed to keep a great attitude.

It is primarily found in were killed in higher proportions than other groups; some scholars limit the definition of the Holocaust to the Jewish victims of the Nazis as Jews alone were targeted for the Final Solution. But for him the question "How could God let this happen to me?" came with at least one answer: "To keep me from exalting myself." This sermon explores how at times we may witness to God's glory through the way we deal with our suffering—a witness we would not be able to offer if God removed the suffering from our lives.

I was so upset. How could God let this happen to him. I wondered how He could let my brother do something so bad. After that, I started to get mad at God, and I turned away from Him. My brother was arrested twice more. I was so mad at God, I could barely stand it.
