Bad Things To Good People
You’ve heard it often; "Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people." But let's get one thing straight before I get to my article. It's not God who does bad things to anyone. That's satan's fun, and he usually doesn't get blamed. God may allow things we feel are bad, but look it up; they deserve what they get for disobedience. All those times Israel has been looted, burned and the people taken as slaves…they asked for it by ignoring their God and worshipping false gods. And time after time, God called that adultery. He even would warned them beforehand, what that would lead to, but they wouldn't listen.
But let me get to the point of the title of this article, by showing you my personal experience. The Lord took the most terrible and heart-breaking time of my entire life, and made it into something good! When my wife had to go to live where they could care for her, I noticed that the Sunday services there had no one to handle the 2nd and 3rd Sundays of each month. I'm not a minister, but my website was enough to accept their suggestion that I help out. And that became the most important thing I've done for the Lord in my entire life of 90 years, at this writing!
And the Lord had even given me a talent, if you will, to sing and write songs, which He helped along by giving me the ability to play the piano, to help with my song writing, that allowed me to include music in the services! Think of it; I was talking to persons who might be leaving this world at any hour, and I don't miss a Sunday of telling them how to give their lives to the Lord to prepare for their last move. And if even one accepts the Lord, it will have been worth it all. God had this planned, all along!
