I want to share a video that a friend of mine posted on Facebook today. It is a sad video, but I highly recommend you watch it... don't be overwhelmed by the story and miss the point though.
A lot of people ask me "Why do bad things happen to good people" and there are 2 answers to that question... firstly (in short) that there are no good people (Romans 3:10, Matthew 19:17). But more importantly, bad things are allowed to happen to bring glory to God. This video is an excellent illustration of this.
"God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him" ~John Piper
Just thought you might appreciate the encouragement... if we are walking with the Lord and allow Him to carry us through the valleys, He will be glorified in us and we will be sustained in Him!
