Where Are We When God Hurts?

Tedd (the associate pastor at my church) was talking with me today about his sermon for Sunday. We chatted about statements such as “I can’t find God in this situation” or “Where is God when everything is going wrong?”. As we chatted, he asked me a very poignant question, what is wrong with these statements. My response turned the statements around. Perhaps, God can’t find us when everything goes wrong. Perhaps, God is wondering what happened to us while he is hurting inside. Perhaps, just maybe, it is we who ran off and left God alone. Our Lord loves relationship. Where am I when God is hurting? I think I am usually off causing the pain.
