I’ve been through a lot of hurts in my life. I would wager you have too. Over the years, God has shown me a common theme throughout His Word. It is that He is God, He is good, loving, and just, and He is always working in our lives–through our circumstances, our losses, our trials, and yes, even and especially through our pain. Put another way, He has a purpose in our suffering. It is not just for the sake of seeing us squirm–as Jim Carey’s character stated in the movie Bruce Almighty.
Does the fact that we hurt mean God has abandoned us or that somehow He has failed us? Does it mean He is evil, bad, or mean? Although our human hearts often believe these scenarios to be true, they are not. Does God allow bad things to happen to us? Yes. The Bible is full of heroic Christians and faithful God-followers who suffered great pain, loss, punishment, disaster, or catastrophe–sometimes even in the name of Christ. As the late Elisabeth Elliot stated in one of her books, “All events serve God’s will.”
But we still want to know why, don’t we? I know I do. As I have processed and worked through my own trials and painful times, God has shown me a few of the answers to the question “why?”. That’s what this brief E-book is about.
If you or someone you know has struggled with the question “why?,” this E-book, Why Do Bad Things Happen? (And Where is God When They Do?) is for you.
