Preachers who have the guts to tell you this are few and far between. Preachers who have the guts to tell you that you’re not God, and that God is God, even when the worst things happen to you, are few and far between. That you’re still part of God’s plan when bad things happen. That when evil happens in your life, when the evil day comes, it is still part of God’s plan. And that is a reason to hope.
