It is through the crosses (life’s difficulties), we bear that God is calling us closer to Him. The beautiful cross which Christ gives us and/or allows us to bear to teach us His blessed ways is a gift and a blessing to show us Jesus’ love, forgiveness and mercy. Without such sufferings/tragedies, we wouldn’t be living as Jesus had lived. “Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple” ( Luke 14:27). No matter what happens “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5-6). Living the word of the Lord is the only way to true happiness. God loves us, and anything that happens to us is for our good (even if it seems so painful). Trying to figure out why God allowed, or allows, the suffering to happen will be in vain since the human mind can’t comprehend such matters. Simply trust in the Lord; He is leading you to eternal salvation in Heaven through your cross, teaching you His blessed ways, and giving you an opportunity to offer up your pain and suffering for your sins and the sins of others, in union with His suffering on the cross for the purification of souls. Praise God!
Daily, God allows seemingly horrific events to occur in our lives. Such sufferings are allowed to happen by our loving God. Those who truly trust in Jesus know He will never lead us down a path of doom and through those tragedies comes God’s greatest blessings and graces which makes the suffering a gift. God is constantly calling us to Him to carry our cross and live like Jesus. “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me” (Matthew 16:”24).
If you have a story of how God’s great blessings, as well as an amazing relationship with God has come to you from your tragedy, please share your story to bring comfort, hope and support to others so they too can find true faith in Jesus and live a life of peace which is given in all circumstances when one has true faith and trust in Jesus.
“In all circumstances, give thanks; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
