Explorations in Policing, Faith and Life (With a hint of humor, product reviews, news and whatever catches my attention)

Faith-where Rubber meets the Road

God is good.  God is always good.  God can never do anything that is not good.

But that is not how we always feel.  Faith is the bridge from the truth in the mind to our emotions that tell a different story and tend to betray us.  We are tested so that our faith remains firm but tragic events are not the test, our reactions to the tragic event is the test.  The event itself is for good, somehow, someway, by some means that probably we will never know until we are at rest with him.  But in the end it is for the glory of God.

One of our brother Officers is facing the ultimate test, one I wish never to experience.  One test that, I don't know if I could pass.

My wife and I and my two children are in prayer for Officer Todd Wood of the Sheldon IA Police Department.

On the morning of February 11, 2011, Todd was the first responding Officer at a fatal vehicle accident.  The fatality was his teenage daughter.

I don't really know what else to say other than my heart goes out to him and his family.  We are praying for you brother.

Luke 2:14
“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
