How is one gone and one spared in tragedies such as this?
It is a question we’ve all asked.
And the answer is: we don’t know.
Some people get very angry at God for this. I get that.
But ultimately, we have to reconcile yourself to the fact that there are mysteries we do not understand. God is close enough to us that we can experience him, but far away enough that we can’t grasp him.
It’s not one or the other. It’s both.
And to accept this is to trust him.
When you do that, you have peace.
The Bible talks about the trials and tragedies of life in a broken world that is not perfected.
But it also talks about the beauty of life.
Know this for certain: God is with us.
