I wrote this one year after The Accident. It’s been shared hundreds of times. I pray it helps someone today.
God’s ways are not our ways. His thoughts are not our thoughts. The secret things belong to God. We will not understand all that He does on earth; however, I know He is loving, compassionate, just, wise, gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love, and full of mercy. He uses junk to make beautiful things. He can and will use The Accident for our good and His glory. He promises in His Word that He will do so. Seeing good things come out of loss does not mean that we can understand the why’s of our child’s death.
