I just got out of the theater from watching World Trade Center. I want to say something but there just are no words that can express what it is I feel. I don't even know if I fully understand what I feel.
Why did 9/11 happen? Why would God allow so many people to die? Its more outside of our logic than anyone could even begin to imagine. But God did say that everything works together for good and, at least to me, that's good enough.
That horrible day in 2001 will live in everyone's minds. Watching our world collapse around us is something that is hard to experience. There may not be a purpose within our logic but one thing is for sure: God showed us something about His creation. He created us in His image but satan perverted that image and seperated us from the Love of God. On September 11th, 2001 we wittnessed something that was incredible and I'm not talking about the horrible events -- I'm talking about His creation coming together and helping one another. As humans we put all of our differences aside and worked for anyone we could for no other reason than it was "the right thing to do" (quoting the movie).
We constantly want to shake our fists at God and ask Him why He would allow something horrible to happen and yet, we never sit back and realize that He never shakes His fist at us when we fail one another. That is something that can not be explained.... We can ask why God allows horrible things to happen or we can ask how God can have so much love for people that have turned their backs on Him.
Why do bad things happen to good people? Its not for us to know but God sure does give us clues if we take the time to listen instead of blaming Him for the bad.
