What if something tragic or something painful happens in your family?
What if, one day, you can’t provide any food on your table?
What if your husband left you for another woman?
What if your teenage son doesn’t listen to you anymore?
What if your sixteen-year-old daughter got pregnant?
What if, after 20 years of marriage, you don’t feel “in love” with your spouse anymore?
What if you are now in your 40s and is still single?
What if your dreams for your family are beginning to shatter?
Is there still hope? Yes, there is. In fact, there is an Invisible Hand constantly and lovingly at work in the lives of God’s children – in their joy and in their pain, in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, in life and in death.
This truth is clearly demonstrated in the tragedy in Naomi’s family narrated in the Book of Ruth. God wants Naomi to see his Invisible Hand at work.
And He wants you to see that, too. May God grant us all spiritual eyes to see his hand moving even in times of tragedy.
