In the midst of sorrow.

Last week's earthquake in Japan was devastating.

The destruction is amazing. The death toll is horrendous-and rising.
If you or someone you know was directly effected by this disaster, my heart goes out to you. Be encouraged by the fact that millions of Christians all over the earth are praying for you. When tragedy strikes, people say many things to try to ease the suffering, sorrow, and pain. However, there is only one thing that we can truly take comfort in:

God is good. (Mark 10:18)
God is sovereign and does what He pleases. (Psalm 115:3)

If God does what He pleases, and is 100% good, then what He does can only be 100% good. He knows what He is doing! Take hope in Him.
