What is God doing?

Sometimes life hurts.  Sometimes we question what God is doing in the midst of this hurt.  I just listened to this excerpt from a sermon from when our pastor had cancer.  I love the truths here presented.

[8] For we do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, of the affliction we experienced in Asia. For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself. [9] Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead.
(2 Corinthians 1:8-9 ESV)

Because we put our tv in the garage this morning, I was able to listen to this during nap time. Reason number 1 why that was a good decision.

When things look dark, this really IS good news. We WILL live with Him.
