Thank you Lord, for a brother like Henry! I pray in Agreement. Our minds are too small to comprehend the work of the Lord, we are called to live in spirit, where life exists! Things of this world is death and destruction, but Jesus is inviting everyone, now, Today to a hire way of living. Focusing all of our attention on the Love of Jesus Christ.

Amen, John!

How about this great man did this act out of loyalty and love, God had little to do with it, besides killing him with that tornado.....

Only Jesus gave His all to us; however, there are "giants" among humans who do give their all to benefit a loved one and this was a case of a man who gave his life to protect his wife without regard for his own. Jesus showed us the Father's love to all of us. May we take these lessons of courage, sacrifice and love to "heart" and let each of us live, sacrificing our lives " in service to others in the world", so that many persons can be ready to meet the Lord 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18 at the time of Christ's return to this earth.

Some times God uses Death of some one for The Life to others. Jesus gave His life for all. Bethany's husband gave his life for his loving wife. Bible says, all things are good for those who are in Christ. I believe Bethany's husband is in Hevean with God. If God would ask to go back again to earth, perhaps he may come for his wife to tell her the goodness of God and beautiful, peaceful heaven other wise he would refuse to come here again. Truth is that One day every one is going to die. But bless are those whose name is written in the book of life. Dear sister, rejoice in the Lord because your name has been written on His Palm. God bless you.

My heart aches for you James. I know your pain and even your anger. It's at times like these that we want to question the sovereignty of God. We, as human beings want to make sense of these terrible situations and it's so natural to try and place blame. Questioning is never wrong in and of itself. Still the best healing can only come from a heart that is allowed to move from the question of why, to the question of what? Have you ever considered that perhaps God never wanted this for his perfect creation, and it may be a symptom of the fall? Is it possible that sin has caused all creation to fall from the perfect state in which God created it? Perhaps the world (could that include the weather pattern?) is subject to frustration and bondage to decay so that it cannot fulfill its intended purpose? See Romans 8:18-21 and then Genesis 3:17-19. God is not the author of evil, He allows it but we as humans actualize it. I wouldn't even catagorize natural disasters as evil in the largest extent, but a consequence of something more, or perhaps as simple as natural, that's why they call them "natural disasters". While we can sincerely wrestle with the "Why" questions, once we realize that we may never know why, this side of heaven, we can then move forward to the more productive question and ask "What?" What am I to learn from this? It's good that we discuss these things, but always with humility and a desire to not misrepresent Him. His ways are so much higher than ours. It's like an ant trying to understand a computer system. I'll be the first to admit, I don't understand enough to blame him for these tragedies. If you will, join me in this journey to understanding. Here's more food for thought along the path.
