Somewhere along the journey of life we realize that things happen in our lives that are beyond our control. We experience things like a broken or troubled relationship we can’t mend or a tragedy we can’t reverse. We experience problem after problem at home, at school, and at work. So why do these things happen to us, and why can’t we change them?
And why do we intentionally do bad things that hurt others and ourselves? Is there something wrong with us that would make us do something like that? We eventually reach the point where we see how small and helpless we really are. We can’t change our circumstances, and we can’t even change ourselves! We begin to look for answers to make sense of everything in life. We look for the peace and assurance that everything will be OK. So where should we turn?
The Bible contains the true answers and guidance for every person’s life. The Bible tells us the reason that we can’t have real peace in our lives when bad things happen is because we are missing something. We have a void that needs to be filled. Don’t miss the rest of this entry!!!!
