Why do bad things happen to good people
One thing that’s hard for me to understand is why bad things happen to good people. When our lives are interrupted by these situations we must not let it defeat us. God will not leave us to face these struggles alone. In John 16:33, He tells us these things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world, ye shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. We must remember that for a child of God the victory has already been won in that we can find the peace to get through the things that we don’t understand.
