Loves Comes Softly Quote

Lael was watching a movie tonight, and I heard a quote that really struck me.  The main character lost his wife, his barn, and had to raise his daughter, Missy, on his own.  He was asked how he could love a God who allowed so many bad things to happen to him.  This was his answer.

Missy could fall down and hurt herself, even if I’m walking right there beside her.  That doesn’t mean I allowed it to happen.  But she knows, with a father’s unconditional love, I’ll pick her up and I’ll carry her.   I’ll try to heal her.  I’ll cry when she cries, and I’ll rejoice when she is well.  In all the moments of my life, God has been right there beside me.  The truth of God’s love is not that he allows bad things to happen.  It’s his promise that he’ll be there with us when they do.
