When Bad Things Happen

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.—2 Corinthians 4:17 (NIV)

At some point in life, something will happen that is so distressing that it leads you to ask God, “Why did this terrible thing happen?” You might even question your faith or His goodness. In this verse the Apostle Paul reminds us that our pain won’t last forever. God is good.

Heavenly Father, I know that my pain is temporary. Your glory is eternal.
