For he wounds, but he binds up;
He shatters, but his hands heal.
We may not understand why things happen. We sometimes ask God why He allows pain and suffering if He really considers us as His children. Until I had watched an episode in the 700 Asia Club about Joy Tan-Chi, the daughter of Pastor Peter Tan. She was born and raised up in a Christian family. She was obedient to God’s words. One day, while her parents were away having Bible study somewhere, some men entered their house forcefully and stole valuable things. Worst, they raped her not once but many times. She was used by these men in different rooms and places in the house. Why do bad things happen to good people?
Here are some links about Joy Tan-Chi:
God has a purpose for letting challenges to come in our lives. We may not know it by now but later God will reveal the reason and life lesson that He wants to impart to us. We need to be wounded and shattered sometimes to enhance ourselves but worry not because the wounds will one day be healed and the shattered pieces will be bind up by God in His time.It takes a Great Healer to mend our brokenness and we need Christ to be able to make the journey from brokenness to wholeness (mind,body,soul and spirit).
