When Life Doesn’t Make Sense

There are a number of events that have transpired over the last few weeks that leaves many people questioning why life just brings so much pain through senseless acts of evil and violence. Well….I don’t have the answer to that, but I am reminded that God knows.  Discovering that your child has been abused can literally snatch the wind out of you, and you are left with countless questions.  This is the time when we must rely on God and depend on His ability to handle our questions and our doubts.

God is thoroughly acquainted with our thoughts and doesn’t expect us to sit idly by without seeking answers for life’s struggles. In fact, it is in the asking that we find the answers we seek. However, in asking, we must also be prepared for the lesson in the journey.

I’ve often made it known that I struggle with Romans 8:28 because I just can’t understand how our child’s abuse will work for her good or ours. But, I haven’t been shy about asking questions and expecting that one day God will answer. So, when life doesn’t make sense, we don’t just sit in our pain, but we go boldly to the throne of grace and seek answers from the ONE who’s got them……

  • Child/Teen sexual abuse is prevalent. Just not opening discussed. It is an incident that strengthens the abused. It opens eyes, it makes you question, it either breaks you or makes you a pillar of strength.

      Thank you for your feedback! There definitely needs to be more discussion taking place regarding this unnecessary evil that is plaguing our society. The effects that it has on the children who are affected by it is heart wrenching, which is why it has to be stopped. Please let others know that we are here. We strive to be a safe place for survivors and their families to land and find compassionate hearts and listening ears.
