Why do bad things happen to good peeople?I often wonder about this.I know that God doesnt do anything wrong and that everything happens for a reason but this is always on my mind.Do you ever think about this?Why do you think this happens?

I dont think about simply because its all as it should be....Bad things happen to ANYONE BECAUSE they need to..We learn and grow from those experiences no matter how bad they are..IF WE CHOOSE TO that is (learn and grow i mean)...Of course as you knwo I dont believe in any god so that just doesnt come itno the equation for me....

Just like how Gold is tested in fire....here Gold would be good and fire would be bad...Gold has to be tested in fire to prove its purity the same i think goes with good people...they have to tested with bad things to prove their good worth :)

I always drive myself thinking about this . It is true i suppose . things do happen for a reason and the thing is usually you do find out why it happened. Life is hard, but sometimes when it rains it really does pour, and pour on the best of people . A mystery in life !

Ahhhh...a question I used to ask all the time. My three children were born with multiple medical needs, some very serious and life-threatening. We are Christians and I was SO very angry with God for "letting" these things happen to my children. Fast forward 8 years, lots of life lessons learned, lots of hospitalizations and surgeries and not great things....but fast forward through birthdays (celebrations of life, around here!), holidays, cuddles, snuggles, my children proving the doctors wrong TIME AND TIME AGAIN.... As the song goes.... I could have missed the pain, but I'd have had to miss the dance. I LOVE the dance. God is there. He's not leaving you. I don't even tend to think that God does these terrible things "on purpose"....He might "let" them happen... but I do think that its all for a reason and even if we can't see the reason at the moment... doesn't everything always work out? Nothing in my life...well, I just can't look back on anything and say "That shouldn't have turned out that way." Everything turns out how its supposed to. We may not LIKE the way it turned out, but time teaches us the reasons for things being the way they are. Keep your chin up!

Just because they are good people dosen't mean that they are exempt from life and let's face it bad things happen in life, if they didn't we wouldn't have the sense to appreciate the good things.
