You know, this was actually a good week to have all of this “running around” because the challenge of clearing this container is NOTHING when compared to the challenge of enduring the genocide 15 years ago or even putting a country back together after total devastation. My few container challenges simply pale in comparison to the suffering that took place here.
This morning in worship the preacher asked, “Where was God during the Genocide?” Then he went on to ask, “Where was God when His Son was nailed to the cross?” It was powerful!
The presence of evil did not mean the abscence of God. In Jesus’ case, it mean the absolute love of a Father for His children. He had to suffer and live through the pain of death in order to truly give them life!
What a loving God we serve! He endured the cross and conquered death in order to break the chains of darkness once and for all. And although the evil one continues to try to destroy everything good that God has made, there is always hope for redemption, salvation, healing and ultimately RESURRECTION!
May you have a blessed day, knowing that He loved you enough to die in your place. Sweet Jesus, thank you!
