TRAgEDY OR bLESSiNg?

“What I am doing, you do not understand now, but you will understand later.” – John 13:7
After many years, the Clark family of Scotland had saved enough money to go to the United States. They already had their passports and gotten reservations on a new liner. It was a dream come true for them.
Seven days before their departure, a dog bit the youngest son. Because of the possibility of rabies, they were quarantined for 14 days. The father was so disappointed and angered by the turn of events that he cursed both his son and God.
Five days after the ship left port, they received tragic news. The Titanic — the ship they were supposed to board — had sunk.
At one time or another, we’ve experienced setbacks in life. There were times that we had it all planned and then the unexpected happens. Our world crumbles. We feel depressed, angry and disappointed. Sometimes, we even blame God for our seeming misfortune.
We may not always understand the Lord’s wisdom behind every event but all things happen for a reason. Who knows? What we may consider as tragedy may turn out to be a blessing after all. Judith Concepcion

REFLECTION:
“We know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

When things don’t seem to go my way, help me to trust in You, for You know best.
