They don't believe there is such a thing. God is in control of the way our lives play out.
He allows negatives in His permission,
and blesses from His goodness.
Some have called this Divine Providence.
My dear friend told me that just a few days ago as we shared our grief together. That day I felt as though the pain was divided.
Share your grief , divide your pain. I've heard that before , somewhere.
For each sorrow or stress on my mind lately, God has sent someone who knows and understands to comfort me. The loss of my younger brother...then came Stephanie and Laura...not to mention all the cards and calls from hundreds of others! My mother's kidney troubles...understood by Tamara. Health concerns...and yet another who knows.The pain of my loved ones...those who knew told me they understood and were lifting my loved ones to God in prayer.
Many would say coincidence, but I know I found them just when God knew I needed them. They share my grief, and it divided my pain. There is always, always grace, if we see it.
