1. God is still God. God acts for his glory and to advance his kingdom. He does not have to explain himself to us, and even if he did we might not understand.
2. We still have faith. Even in pain, even when we do not understand, and even when our hearts are breaking… we cling to faith in our God.
3. We believe this life is not the final answer. We believe we will live with God forever after this world is no more. That is our reality.
4. God will make all things right. Death does not win. God will dry our tears. Satan is defeated.
So to our non-believing friends, we want you to know that God answers prayers. But please do not think our faith is dependent on God doing what we ask. We would never ask you to share a faith that believes we control God. We ask you to share a faith that believes God is in control no matter what. That is why we believe.
