The Problem Of Evil (Theodicy)

We've been talking about the Problem of Evil in youth group lately - from both an apologetics standpoint as well as from a Biblical and practical standpoint. An old song has simple, but great words - and I thought I'd share it - maybe some here are struggling (just possibly). Be encouraged. Oh - and one reminder from Job - God is wise, Almighty, and good. Trust Him!

Babbie Mason

All things work for our good
though sometimes we can’t see how they could.
Struggles that break our hearts in two
sometimes blind us to the truth.
Our Father knows what’s best for us;
His ways are not our own.
So, when your pathway grows dim,
and you just can’t see Him,
Remember He’s still on the throne.

God is too wise to be mistaken.
God is too good to be unkind.
So when you don’t understand,
When you don’t see His plan,
When you can’t trace His hand, trust His heart.

He sees the Master plan.
He holds the future in His hands.
So don’t live as those who have no hope.
All our hope is found in Him.
We walk in present knowledge,
but He sees the first and the last.
And like a tapestry, He’s weaving you and me
to someday be just like Him.
