Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and early on after I broke my neck in that diving accident, I learned that when accidents happen, it’s okay to call them accidents –even the Bible does. When babies die, when whole populations starve, when young girls break their necks? These are terrible things. But the Bible insists on another truth simultaneously. When these things happen –when there are famines and birth deformities, bad medical reports and devastating tornadoes, God hasn’t taken his hands off the wheel for a nanosecond. His plans are being accomplished despite –even through –these tragedies. They are tragedies... he considers them so because  He takes no delight in misery. But God is determined to direct it for his own useful purposes. He allows what he hates to accomplish what he loves – learn more about this wonderful perspective at jonianfriends.org.
