God Is Good.

Buddy's killer was booked and charged with his murder yesterday. He will remain in jail without bail until his trial. We are still unsure of how and what happened but it doesn't matter. It doesn't change the outcome. It's taking every ounce of me to keep praying to God to keep these feelings of anger, hate and malice out of my heart. It's infuriating to look at the person who killed Buddy with a smile on his face in his mugshot and out of touch with reality. Seemingly heartless and the look of evil in his eyes. It's hard to even read any more of Buddy's case because it simply is heart breaking. I know it is not right to judge and that I must forgive this senseless person and pray that my heart can be softened to do so. I know God has a plan for us and that His promises are everlasting if we so choose to do what is right and keep His commandments. I know He knows ALL and we must endure to the end. I will never deny His hand in all things and I know He is with us all and comforts us in our sorrows. Trials only make us stronger and I have a greater understanding on where our perspective should be. I only hope that when this life is over, I can be worthy to enter into His rest. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I am grateful you are all in our lives. Regardless of any situation, God is good. He is ALWAYS good!

  1. It is hard to forgive when people trespass against us, but knowing that this man took an innocent life makes it incredibly difficult. You're are so amazing, Talisha! Not too many people would immediately ask Heavenly Father to remove the anger and bitterness from their heart when such a tragedy has occurred. I hope the man that so carelessly took Buddy's life will be brought to justice. I am so glad they caught him.

  2. Thanks Holli. Your words really mean a lot. I read an article where Buddy's mother said that she has to forgive her son's killer, she has to because she loves God too much not to.  Regardless of what religion or faith we may be, she hit it dead on. We MUST forgive. It is not our place to hold that kind of grudge. God's love is ever so perfect and all we can do is try our best and endure to the end. We won't know just how sweet His love for us is until we meet our Maker. That in and of itself makes bad things easier to swallow and to handle. Love you Holl!!
