Four years ago today, I posted a blog about my emergency room “miracle experience” after the Aurora Theater shooting. The post went viral, and created some controversy. Does God really do miracles? Why for one person and not another? Does a good God even exist?

We do not know the reason, but we praise God, and hope she will fulfill the purpose God has for her. We always wonder why did this one live, but another died? We just don’t know the answers. How did she get so unlucky as to be shot in the first place, and yet how did she get so lucky that the bullet did so little harm to her brain? Is anything really luck or coincidence? Does time and chance happen to all? Several died that night, yet this one was shot in the face and lives. Only God knows.

Sure we don’t want to walk around ignorant but sometimes in our “crush to know” the enemy turns the game around on people with doubts or human reasoning that when done from the wrong perspective can lead down quite a slippery slope. Thanks for your thoughts and Take care out there on the road my friend.
