A FERVENT HEART

Lessons from Tragedy!

The caves have heard the best prayers.

Some birds sing best in cages.

Some of the God’s people shine brightest in the dark.

“When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways – either by losing hope and falling into self-destruction habits or by using the challenge to find our inner strength” – Dalai Lama.

The answered prayers have built my faith, strengthened my walk with GOD and given me hope in the midst of life’s perplexing storms.

But, the silence of GOD creates tension in me.

I find God’s silence unfathomable and always impossible to explain.

When you find yourself dealing with an unfamiliar cocktail of emotions, the pain is so overwhelming and searing, that you wouldn’t wish it on anyone.

It’s difficult to describe the tumultuous wave of feelings that come and overwhelm you.

Tragedy instantly spells the end of a joyful period and the beginning of a rather painful journey.

The secret however, is to learn during the whirlwind of daily life, to relax more frequently.

Like a weaned child, you need to be content.

When that void in my heart aches to be filled, it’s the star of comfort that makes it whole.

I’ve got the Star – Jesus Christ who gives significance and purpose to my life.

When bitter sorrows robs the peace and joy of life, it’s the Star of God’s genuine love that whispers joy.

It never loses brilliance of hope; incomprehensible hope, one that we can only embrace when all strands of life burn out.

God’s perfect love dispels my fear and darkness, dries up my tears and repairs strands I cannot fix.

Thank you!

Smile and Shine!

    Your words are both inspirational and beautiful! I, also, try to understand trials and tribulations. Here’s my short list of why bad things happen, which can include unanswered prayers. 1) sinful and evil world 2) we have the free will to make wise and foolish choices 3) God allows a sinful world so we can freely choose Him 4) we need trials and tribulations to grow spiritually 5) God disciplines His children out of love when they don’t want to obey Him 6) Spiritual warfare, which is the biggest and most underestimated (ck out Dan. 10) God bless you!
