I have about a million questions for God. Why cancer? Why tsunamis? Why poverty? Why politicians? Why no-see-ums? Why…
If God is all loving and God is all good, how can there be evil?
I don’t get it.
One thing I know: God is working in all things. You are not on our own in the suffering. It is a great mystery. But you are not alone. The cross is the final word on that.
Whatever you do, don’t interpret suffering as God’s rejection. Find God in it. God is with you in pain more than anywhere in all creation.
This doesn’t make suffering easy. But it doesn’t have to be lonely.
