If God is good, why do bad things happen?

Have you ever wondered why bad things happen to you despite the fact that God loves you?

Col 1:16 says “all things have been created through him and for him”.

Every good and bad thing happens because they point us to Christ.

A prolonged hardship,
A sudden loss,
A repeated failure,
A heartbreaking event,
All fearful circumstances,

They happen so God can capture our attention and we call upon Him. When we are burdened of our weaknesses, Satan takes us away and unconsciously we are embarrased to go to God.

The truth is we don’t need to empty our bag of “burdens” before praying to Him. We need to bring those burdens to Him.

1 Peter 5:7 – Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

God loves you so much. You are precious to Him ❤️
