We ask how can God allow suffering to happen. He doesn’t. That is our work.

Mommy Mantra July 16, 2014: “The Lord will not abandon his people.” Psalm 94:14 (Responsorial Psalm)
a
“The Lord will not abandon his people.” That is a promise! But we get so caught up in the everyday, we get buried by our own worries and concerns, we take on the news about celebrities as if it were mother’s milk, we hear about events of the world and we feel so overwhelmed by it all that God being in his universe and all is right with the world seems like a cruel joke.

We ask how can God allow suffering to happen. He doesn’t. That is our work.
Why does he seem to give more to others and less to some. Again that is on us. Why didn’t/doesn’t he answer prayer. How do we know he hasn’t?
a
It is said that all it would take to relieve hunger is 30 billion dollars while we spend 780 billion on war. It is not God that does this.
a
Yet God loves and provides for us everyday.
a
We pray and think God does not answer our prayer but how many of us look back over the months that have past and suddenly see God’s hand all over the situation? When we are in the midst of it we can not see the whole.
a
It does a heart good to detach from the news which feeds us facts along with hyperbole and spend time with God: praying, reading Scripture, absorbing the beauty that surrounds us. God’s good give balance to the evil of the world.
a
Today let’s pray for balance
