In Pain? Trust God's Love

Hearing of the the death of her husband, Sandra collapsed in tears. The love of her life was gone forever, the  friend, buddy, love  since high school would never again laugh together with her. She'd never again feel the warmth of his strong arms hugging her. Grief ripped at her soul. A scream began deep within and barrelled out of her mouth filling the room with anguish as she crumbled to the floor. . .  can there be words to help Sandra, to comfort the ripping away of a chunk of her heart?

Who can help? No earthly words can salve the pain. No person can fill the hole left by this bleeding gouge within. Only God. Only God who loves us all, Who knows everything about us, Who mourns with our hearts in the devastation left by bad news. Only He can bring comfort to her soul, but will she reject Him? Will she blame Him? Or will she trust Him with her pain?

Trust God? Its not always easy. Sometimes He is the only One "to blame", and the anger that comes with grief often demands someone to blame. . . And God is an obvious scapegoat. After all He could have stopped it; He could have kept Him alive. Why did He not protect her beloved? God is blamed many times for tragedy; some even walk away from God, because He did not do what seemed right to them. The God they see is so small that they believe they can judge His actions.

Gaze at a cloudless night sky from a dark place without city lights, and you will see the wonder of God. And if you had scientific knowledge of space, it would astonish you; it’s majesty would establish forever the greatness of the God we serve. Look at the gentleness of our Creator in a tiny newborn baby, in a bunny, in the caress of a Spring breeze upon Your face. That is the loving hand of God expressing His love for you. Yes, majesty and love are both of the character of God.

Our God is all knowing of everything. He knows past, present, and future. His actions always reflect the best for us. The enemy hates us and tries to destroy us, to shatter our faith and trust in God. We must always focus on the might, the love of God and trust Him in everything. It can be difficult, but it will always come out best for us.

The pall that hung over Sandra lasted awhile, but she did know God and she did come to trust Him and to turn her pain over to Him, and  her struggle was eased. The hole left in her being by the absence of her love, slowly began to fill as she allowed God to work in her again.

Father, Son and Holy Spirit: how awesome is our God! He answers all our needs when we let Him. He surrounds us with His love and protection and we can count on Him to always do the best for us, to bring us the best solution to any situation. Our God’s love is so powerful it encompasses us every day in every way. . . when we allow it and accept it. Trust God's love in all things.
