Life turns every person upside down. No one escapes unscathed. Not the woman who discovers her husband is having an affair. Not the businessman who has his investments embezzled by a crooked colleague. Not the teenager who discovers that a night of romance has resulted in a surprise pregnancy. Not the pastor who feels his faith shaken by questions of suffering and fear.
We'd be foolish to think we are invulnerable. But we'd be just as foolish to think that evil wins the day.
The Bible vibrates with the steady drumbeat of faith: God recycles evil into righteousness. Perhaps you read this in search of a quick fix for your challenges. "How to Overcome Obstacles in Five Easy Steps." I don't have an easy solution or a magic wand. I have found something better - Someone - far better. God himself. When God gets in the middle of life, evil becomes good.
