Last week, a friend of mine lost her 17 month old daughter to a rare degenerative disease. I can't help but wonder and ask God, why? Why do bad things happen to people? How could a loving God allow such heartbreak among his followers? I don't think we'll ever fully understand why these things happen until Christ's second coming. As a believer, I can rejoice in that hope and know that the world is not suppose to be this way and it won't be this way forever! God designed the world perfect. Sadly, the human race did not take that path. Adam, as the "father" of all human beings, chose a path of sin for our world and race. We were not designed to sin. Our world was not designed for sin and yet it's all around us and in us. It's like if we were to put the wrong gas in our cars, it wouldn't work as well or maybe not at all. Sin does not work for the human race. And tragically, the outcome is the deaths and diseases of our human race. Doesn't seem fair does it? Why does it happen to little ones who didn't even have a chance? Why does it to happen to "saints" who are doing the world some good? Why doesn't it happen to the "bad" people, like murders and rapist who can live until they're 80? That's what makes sin such a disgusting disease for our world to be infested with. I do believe God uses tragic events for His greater good and we may never know why until we can ask Him in heaven one day. There are two human men brought to this world perfect and without sin, While Adam lead humanity into sin, Christ made a path out of it. "By one Man's obedience, many will be made righteous." Romans 5:19. One day there will be no more suffering, no more sin, no more tragic deaths of sweet little ones. "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?" 1 Corinthians 15:55
This post might seem a little scatterbrained, but that's me. :) My mind has been going a million miles a minute thinking of the death of this sweet little girl. If you'd like to know more about their story and/or to help them with funeral and medical expenses visit this site set up to help them.
