There are days life just slams you and you struggle to deal with it. But then you hear about a tragedy so horrific that you cannot imagine the pain, despair, grief and hopelessness in that situation. So you say, “My problems are nothing in comparison.” And you stuff it deep down in your soul. While what happens to others may put your life in perspective, it does not negate your pain, hurt or disappointment. God is with those who are trying to pick up the pieces after a horrible tragedy. God is also with you as you try to deal with what’s going on in your life. Indeed, God is with everyone who struggles, grieves, hurts or is abused. That’s because God’s love is so large that there’s more than enough to go around. And that means healing is real. New life is real. And hope is always present.
