Man and God were separated by sin long, long ago. He gave us our own free will to make the choices that we do all by ourselves, good or bad. I guess choosing sin must be easier for the majority of the people, for that is what is usually chosen.
Even after all our evilness as people, God loves us! He sent his only son to die for us, so we would again have the opportunity to walk with Him, side by side. I choose to be Spiritually connected and loved by Him.
My heart is breaking for the loved one’s of those who died or were injured in the Aurora, Colorado recent shootings. I read a blog written by a woman who survived it with her two girls, her first line was, “Maybe I survived this shooting so you would have the opportunity to read this, that God is Good! and that God loves you!”
I have learned through my own tragedies of life, that God is Good, and that something good will come out of this.
He says in his Word, Romans 8:28:
28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. “
Peace and Blessings!
