Faith in Hindsight

Stan origami

A five year old dies from meningitis

A young woman commits suicide within hours of being released from hospital

The blog of a young man suffering from severe depression

A young mother miscarries

Loss

Stress

Grief

Tragedy

Heartbreak

WHERE IS GOD?

THIS CARING,LOVING GOD?

Verses quoted by well-meaning but un-empathetic people

Become a weight round my neck

Adding to my misery and despair

I don’t see him Not even a glimmer

In the deep dark pit of

WHY?

It is only as I come out

Of the darkness of despair

That I begin to see

That God has not left me

And in hindsight

I see the provision

Growth

Change

Hope

Strength

For that deep dark chapter in my life

And my faith deepens

And I can say

GOD, YOU WERE THERE!

YOU ARE WITH ME!

YOU DO CARE!

Hindsight Gives me the strength

To hold on

When life gets tough

Bible verses only become real to me

As I live out the ups and downs of life

These are the verses I can hang onto

Strengthening my faith

AND I KNOW YOU ARE STILL GOD!
