When You Question is God Cares

by | Mar 7, 2022 | Faith journey, Social commentary | 0 comments

My sweet friend Anna moved back to Ukraine last year with her husband and her five-year-old daughter. Yesterday I messaged her, and her words broke my heart: “I am trying to stay positive, but sometimes I can’t hold my tears. I want to run, but I can’t leave my family behind. I don’t want to betray this country.”

I just can’t imagine my daily life consisting of holding my little child, hiding in the bathroom every time the siren breaks out, and worrying about if my family will survive.

I want to reach my arms out to pull her out of this horrible mess, but I feel helpless. I pray that she will keep her faith and hope, but this is surely a better test than I can ever imagine.

What’s happening in Ukraine reminds us that this world is full of sorrow, sadness, evil, aggression, tragedy, loss, pain and hurt. The enemy is roaming around in his domain without an ounce of mercy.

But the most damage he can do is not war. The most damage he can do is destroying our faith and hope for heaven.

So keep your prayers up, friends. That’s the most powerful weapon we have in our hands. And please pray for our friends’ lives and faith in Ukraine.

The war has already been won, and there is no better time to hold on to this truth.

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6:12
