When tragedy strikes, or when evil happens, we often ask, “Why?’ Some get mad at God for letting painful things happen, others doubt a loving God exists if there’s evil the world, and some work to find a reason behind tragedies, as if God is sending a sign or judgment.
In the midst tragedy and evil/pain, we hurt, cry, get mad, feel despair, and often feel hopeless. And these moments often seem without reason or purpose. Some ask why does God let bad things happen to good people? Yet, we all go through pain, have loved ones die unexpectedly, and deal with sudden tragedy.
