God is there in the Good and Bad

Philadelphia is basking in its first Super Bowl victory and fans are rejoicing and celebrating. This contrasts with a very different emotion experienced by a Kentucky community gripped by tragedy. I'm talking about Marshall County, where 14 students were shot and two were killed by a fellow student. Yet, in the midst of the two very different events something similar is happening. Both events point to God. In Marshall County, the community came together to pray for the hurting families. In Philadelphia, several players and the coach thanked God and showed His preeminence in their lives. Whether in times of deep grief or great joy people turn to God.  And just as God is the reality that sustains us, we need to acknowledge the central place he deserves in our lives, whether in times of celebration or heartache.
