How do you grasp these events, and others like them, and put them in the context of a God who loves us? How do you look at your own life and my own life and see the brokenness and the carnage and the difficulties and the heartache and the heartbreak and say somewhere in all of that there is a purpose and a plan?
I have found comfort in this particular passage because it’s given me understanding and wisdom into knowing exactly what’s happening in the life of so many people and in my own life.
It’s from John 10:10. The thief comes to steal, to kill and to destroy. But Jesus says I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. Right in that passage we begin to realize something very critical as to how we live out our life. That there are competing agendas regarding us.

There’s an agenda that the thief has and his single focus is to steal, to kill, and destroy us; that’s his only focus.
But yet there is another agenda at play and that is the agenda of our God. Our God who has loved us in Christ and is to give us life amidst the heartache and the heartbreak and the destruction that Satan brings.
