Where Is God?

It’s easy to question God when tragedy strikes. My friend
Sandy Clark wrote of her own journey through pain: “When
we lost our baby, I was angry, disappointed, and depressed. A
mess emotionally, I blamed myself and questioned my faith.
There were no words to express my grief to God; I couldn’t
pray. So I cried out, repeating the name of Jesus, nothing
more. God taught me that when our faith falters, He remains
faithful. I read about St. Teresa of Avila who suffered physical
pain for many years. In her quiet moments with God, she
created a mental ‘garden of prayer.’ She would retreat into this
garden when her pain was unbearable. She developed four
steps of ‘watering’ her garden: stillness, meditation on God’s
Word, prayer for union with God, and receiving God’s love
through faith. St. Teresa never received physical healing in this
life, but her garden of prayer and daily watering produced
much fruit. When I retreat to a quiet place with God and use
St. Teresa’s four steps, receiving His love brings peace and healing
for my wounded, broken heart.”

O my LORD, You are a shield for me, my glory, and the
One who lifts up my head. I cried to the Lord with my
voice, and He heard me out of His holy hill. Thank
You for leading me and carrying me in Your arms.
