WHAT IF YOU HAD THE POWER

Sunday, April 24, 2016

50 Is Not Old | What if you had the powerDid any of you watch the movie, “Bruce Almighty?” It was a movie starring Jim Carrey, and Morgan Freeman. It is a movie where the character, Bruce, complains to the Lord over and over. The Lord decides to let “Bruce” do the job to teach him a lesson. I remember a scene where Bruce is tormented by these voices asking for this and that. Heal me, save my marriage, help me win the lottery, on and on went the voices. He realized that it was the prayers of millions of people he was hearing. In typical Hollywood fashion, he answered ALL the prayers via email. He hit select all, and said YES to every prayer. He thought he was making everyone happy, and then the prayers would stop. Of course mayhem was the result.50 Is Not Old | What if you had the powerHave you ever wondered why bad things happen to good people? I know I have. I have thought, “why would You let so many terrible things happen to one of Your devoted children?” “Why did they have to die, why was he/she born with a deformity, why did they lose everything they owned?” 50 Is Not Old | What if you had the powerOr, on the other hand, why does good things happen to bad people? Why would a liar, a thief, or someone truly evil seem to prosper? How many times have you thought that it just wan’t fair? 50 Is Not Old | What if you had the powerAs best I can tell, temporary treasures on earth are not our blessings. Our reward will not come in this life, but after this life. I do not pretend to understand, or to say that I don’t sometimes questions why. I can only say, that I am glad that He has a plan, and I am just along for the ride.

Read Psalms 73 to understand, we are not the first to ask why.

If you’re going through bad things now, know that us “gurls” love you. We are here for you, and will say prayers for you.

Details of outfit on tomorrow’s blog post.

Have a blessed Sunday!

    I love your post. My dad passed away last week. I’m not really asking why, but I am thankful for God’s love, mercy, and peace that passes all understanding. I would appreciate your prayers for me and my family.
