Repercussions of sin...

When the frosts are in the valley,
And the mountain tops are grey,
And the choicest buds are blighted,
And the blossoms die away,
A loving Father whispers,
"This cometh from my hand";
Blessed are ye if ye trust
Where ye cannot understand.
~Streams in the Desert

There are many things that happen in our life that we cannot understand.  Another person who sins against us with no care, wonderful relationships that are broken, pain that is inflicted because of selfishness...all these things are repercussions of sin.  One person's sin can ripple into so many others lives.  What I've come to realize is that in all things there is a purpose.  God doesn't waste a hurt.  Even when we are bombarded by the storms of life, we can still grow and flourish under His care.  God doesn't forget our pain or the good we have done.  And in the end, There is a day.  2 Corinthians 4:17 What was once broken, will be put back together again in Glory.
