When a father received word that his son, a brilliant lad, had been killed in a railroad accident, he turned to his pastor & cried in desperation, "Tell me, sir, where was God when my son was killed?"
And in that tense & terrible moment guidance was given to the counseling pastor. "My friend," he said. "God was just where He was when His own Son was killed!"
“Often we become apathetic in our lives until we face a severe storm. Whether loss of a job, health crisis, loss of a loved one, or financial struggle; God often brings storms into our lives to change our perspective, to shift the focus from ourselves and our lives to Him.” - Paul Chappell.
The Bible says: “The LORD hears those who cry out, and he delivers them from all their distress. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted, and he delivers those whose spirit has been crushed. A righteous person will have many troubles, but the LORD will deliver him from them all.” (Ps 34:17-19 ISV)
