Please pray for Steven Curtis Chapman and family

Especially for his teenage son.

Steven Curtis Chapman's daughter killed by car in driveway

I wrote this elsewhere and will share it here as well:

At times like this, many people - both those who believe in God and those who don’t - ask, “Why would God let this happen?” We can never fully know the answers to such a question, but what we can fully know is what God has promised us:

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

God had a reason for this and it will ultimately result in something good. It may be public or private, but it will be something that glorifies Him.

For those of us who love God, tragedies like this are bittersweet. While we certainly grieve the loss of children, we know that they are welcomed into the loving arms of the Lord and we will be reunited forever with them someday.
