A grief support page posted a quote from my book a couple of weeks ago. I think it’s worth posting again.
I read another status tonight about someone who survived a terrible car accident. “God was with him since no one should have survived this bad of an accident.”
Folks, God promised His children that He would never leave us or forsake us.
God was with Andrew when he, too, was in a car wreck but did not survive! God never turned His back or left Andrew alone. God was watching over my son when he was in an accident. He was with Andrew all the time.
Statuses like the one mentioned above imply that God was not with the ones who died in an accident. Or of cancer. Or heart disease.
Please remember that God is not one to show favoritism by “being with” or “looking out for” only those who are healed or survive. He cares for all of us, even in the midst of terrible accidents or circumstances. Even in the midst of suffering.
