Being a Christian and a believer in God, when I realized the extent of this disaster, I found myself questioning God and why he would let this happen, especially to the children. The God I believe in is not a vengeful, punishing God, but a loving and forgiving God. Even, if he was a vengeful God, those children had done nothing to warrant his anger.
Maybe, I am looking at this the wrong way. God did not deliver this tsunami to punish his children. Maybe, I am struggling too hard. I should just let go and if God wants me to know the answers, he will give them to me in his time not mine.
God has a master plan and reasons for everything he does. It is not my place to know his reasons, but to accept what he has done and build on it, be it a call for world peace or simply a call for peace within my home and community. My contribution although only a small drop in the pond is one more drop that wasnít there before.
Itís not important to know why God let this happen. What is important is how we as Christians respond to it. God expects us to respond with generosity and love. To share ourselves and our souls with those in need. God expects us to share the love that he has given us with others and bring them willingly home to him. This great wave of water should create in the world a great wave of love that the heavens feel. Let God see that we are his people with all the good values and morals he wants us to have. We are Godís people, all of us, and the time has come to take on his armor and declare ourselves. WE ARE GODíS LOVING PEOPLE!
