Why God??

Many people have asked, “where was God during the Connecticut shootings?” Luke 2 tells us, when Mary was ready to give birth to Jesus, there was no room in the Inn. Even today people do not have room for Jesus in their hearts and lives, there’s no room for Him in our schools, often in our communities and work places, nor in our country!
When a society becomes so anti God, this is what tends to be the result. We have seen the depravity of man at its finest through this pointless massacre. This, leaves us all feeling uneasy and asking, why?
You cannot deny Christ in a society and then blame the very God you deny, when bad happens! Bad, is a result of sin; we are all born with a sin nature. When you couple that sin nature with a society that wants to live and do how it pleases, wanting nothing to do with what God set in place, you get this!
The Bible says, “all have made bad choices, and because of those bad choices, the result is death”. Jesus came with a free gift for you and I, and in receiving Him (the simplicity of the gospel… just receive Him) we receive eternal life!
Jesus, coming to the earth was His way of making a path for sinful men to come boldly to His Throne, there, we can receive grace and mercy in our time of need.
Gods grace and Mercy is available to all. That will be the only thing that will sustain our nation, while hope might seem lost.
I was so touched to see one father, who lost his 6year old daughter, stand firm on his faith in God. Where was God? He has there, sustaining His son, through the death of his daughter. One day, this father and daughter will be together again in heaven.
Thank you Jesus for making a way for us! Thank you, for the cross and thank you, for loving people so much that you refuse to leave us stagnate. Lord, bring Good out if this evil. May we as a society, see just how truly great our need is for You.
Merry Christmas all

About Sarah Rachel Hill

After graduating high school, a tragic surfing accident changed Sarah Hill's life. Suffering a broken neck and back, Sarah clung to Christ and through this painful journey, God's plan and purpose for her life started to become clear. After recovering from her accident, Sarah completed her Associate's Degree in theology from Calvary Chapel Bible College (CCBC). Trusting God, Sarah returned to surfing and became a missionary to the island of Kauai in June 2001. There, Sarah founded Kauai Child, a ministry geared toward the island's kids. Soon after arriving in Kauai, she began spending more of her time in ministry to junior and senior high students. Sarah has helped create youth groups on the North Shore of Kauai and ministers to more than 150 kids a week. Because of her fun and loving approach to youth, she has one of the largest youth groups on Kauai. Sarah takes the time to truly listen and understand the full scope of each student's needs. Her ministry also includes helping establish Christian clubs in public schools, discipling kids, counseling students and their families, and of course, her ministry to kids on the water while surfing! Grounded in her devotion and love for Christ for more than 17 years and in ministry for 12 years, Sarah's training allows her to recognize those in need and gives her the ability to reach out to them. After growing up in a tough and abusive home, through God's grace, she continues impacting lives for God's kingdom on Kauai ... and beyond. In SOUL SURFER, Sarah is portrayed by Carrie Underwood.

    Sarah, I cried reading what you wrote. The words are really deep. So many times, people (including me) let anything in the first place less GOD. And He is everything people need in this insane world. GOD bless you!
