Events this past week have been heavy on my heart for a few days, and of course I turn towards this to have a sense of relief. Relief in letting things out and letting things fall out of my mind in a rapid pace to aid myself in not having to deal with the burden of keeping it in.
Why do bad things happen? Just in general. Bad things happen to good people and people have to deal with complications that occur in life and life just doesn’t really stop for anybody, you know?
When bad things happen to people, this leads them to having a deeper appreciation for the things that God brings them in life. Though they might not completely understand it, they come out even stronger than before. The obstacles that are brought to them allow them to grow more gentle and more passionate about the things and people that surround them.
If God wanted a world with no hardships, then it would be so. But how else would you feel closer with God if you didn’t have to go through a little suffering? Though some might suffer more than others, it’s still a part of this circle called life and it still allows us to fall on our knees in front of Him. The hurdles and interferences that are brought to certain people are brought to them for a reason. Despite the fact that we might not completely comprehend the reasons behind why things happen, we must know that everything that occurs is meant to help, not harm.
With that being said, I don’t believe that if you are good then good things will happen. But, if you don’t at least try to do good things, then nothing that you do will be worthwhile. Sometimes the darkest of times can bring us to the highest of places.
Your heart might feel a bit heavy, but I promise you are not weak. Your mind might be amiss, but I promise you are not broken. The breaks and tears within your heart due to past events will eventually heal — but until then, I promise you are not weak just because your heart feels heavy.
