Sometimes life is stormy.
Some people get angry at God because they say he lets bad things happen.
But what about the good things God lets happen? Are we thankful?
There is evil in the world. But there is also good.
So when things are really bad, remember that God gives us good, too.

We look at life through a lens.
We either see the good and are angry about the bad, or we see the bad and are thankful for the good.
With destruction, there is always hope.
The earth reveals who God is.
Why doesn’t he stop evil and tragedy?
I don’t know.
But I do know he brings something good from it.
It doesn’t make the pain go away, but it makes you live again.

Evil exists in a broken world.
People get sick.
Tires go flat.
Houses catch on fire.
We relish in the good – and so we should.
But sometimes, evil can shadow the good and we forget the good is there.
There is only one who can redeem the atrocities in our lives. God.
The Bible tells us he is compassionate and merciful. His love is so great that he died for the world because evil kept him at a distance.
Does his love stop there? No. It continues on and on and on.
And often, God shows he is with us when he surprises us with comfort when snowflakes fall gently upon the earth.
All around us is God’s presence.
