I find this dilemma at work in the earth. God is good, but evil exists within His creation. It hurts us. Pokes at us. It finds us when we least expect it. To say, “I don’t like it,” is an understatement.
Of course, we blame it on the dark side of humanity, of which we could trace all the way back to Adam and Eve. But, upon reflection, its source does not matter; it’s still here, now. We have to wrestle with it, look at it, and even experience its impinging force upon our lives.
BUT, oh for the cross! A beacon in the night that calls out to us…that draws us to its healing shores, that bathes us in its healing love.
Declare with me, “God is good!” Let everything else be silent.
