Sometimes we go through situations that are difficult to understand. We ask God why they happened and we wait for an answer, but none comes. Oh, we realize that sometimes we or the people in our lives have made wrong decisions that eventually hurt them and the ones they love. Sometimes natural disasters affect our lives. Sometimes the inattention of a moment brings hurt to ourselves and those closest to us. Those are situations we can understand. There are others we cannot understand at all.
I am so glad we have God, who understands all things. He not only understands, but He loves us no matter what happened or who, if anybody, is at fault. He forgives when we have sinned. He comforts when we place ourselves in His hands. That’s the secret to comfort: resting in His infinite knowledge and loving care.
