Why Has This Happened?

"Now the people...sat in the presence of God until evening, weeping loudly and bitterly. 'O LORD, God of Israel,' they cried out, 'why has this happened...'?" Judges 21:2-3

My voice mingles with those of the Israelites. My question echoes theirs.

Trusting though not understanding, I face another day.

He is carrying you through this my friend. I am praying hard for you to remain in Him. Joy I know NONE of this is clear right now and NONE of it makes sense, or seems to have any purpose. So hold tight to the one thing that does...His amazing love for you, I am praying that today He showers so much of HIs love on you that He takes your breath away. Hugs and love I send to through this screen...and know I am lifing up some might prayers to Him for you!!!

Still checking in on you every day. Still praying. Still concerned.

Dear friend, He is big enough to handle all of your "whys". Give them to Him. He will take them tenderly. Trusting is not always easy, and I pray for your continued strength.

I am praying for you today! I have all of the same questions with the situation with my dad. I have gotten strength from your words and from your friends. I know I have to trust that God's way is the only way. Surrending to that is so very difficult though.

Praying for you and your family!

Still praying and grieving all that you are missing in your Daddy. I love you my friend and I lift my arms in prayer that God would sustain you with His unending grace and peace.

Dear Father God, hold your daughter close and comfort her in ways that only YOU can!

Praying for you as you try to make it through this incredible struggle. Know that He holds this all in His hands. He sees the plan even when we cannot.
