Everything happens for a reason.

Everything in life happens for a reason.  So often we as humans just don’t understand why.  Sometimes disabilities are a result of our own mistakes such as drinking and driving or merely not thinking before acting.

When one is born with a disability or is genetically predisposed to a disabling condition we all too often go to God and ask “why?”  In our finite way of thinking we often see the disability as something negative, only thinking of ourselves.  This is not to say that we cannot question God or pray and ask Him to deliver us from our illnesses. 

My grand-nephew, the grandson of my brother, was born with Down syndrome.  My brother, in his first reactions, questioned God wondering how such a thing could happen.  After much thought and a grieving process he found peace.  In his prayer time, while seeking God’s comfort the thought came to him; “Has God ever made a mistake?”  Without a doubt, the answer had to be “No!”

In the New Living Translation, Romans 8:28 says “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”  It didn’t say “some things,” it says “all things.”

Even though disabilities happen, and whether or not they ever disappear, our lives touch and affect others.  Whether it’s for inspiration or to cause us be thankful for what God has given us, everything has its purpose.
