Where was God...during the death of our loved ones over the years?
He was there to end their suffering and He was found in the form of love shown by family and friends -
who were there to comfort and console us.
Where was God...over the years of endless surgeries?
He was found in the doctors -
who could help alleviate some of the pain.
He was there in all the caring people -
who helped comfort me throughout those times.

Most of all, He was there in my husband and my son -
who sacrificed so much to show their love for me.
Where was God..through all the troubles and trials that life has thrown at me?
He was (and is) there in the form of HOPE -
Hope for a better future, here and for all eternity.
He was (and is) there in the form of LOVE -
Love for others and their love for me.
He was (and is) there in the form of PEACE -
Peace that comes from the ultimate knowledge that no matter what life throws at me
I can rest assured that God will be there
in whatever form I need Him the most
So, the next time you find yourself asking "Where was God?" -
just stop and look around you and you will be amazed
His Presence lies in so many things we take granted day by day.
The question isn't "Where was God?"
but rather "Why did I fail to see Him?"
