I can't imagine coping after such great loss, and although there are no easy answers as to why bad things happen to good people, Scripture teaches us that it does rain on the just and the unjust.
However, as Christians, we sorrow not as those without hope. Along with our grief, comfort can be found.
One of my favorite passages of Scripture is John 14, where Jesus said: "And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you."
Today, my prayer is that the Comforter will surround the Treadway family with his unfailing arms of love as they mourn the loss of their beloved daughter. ♦
