Thursday a group of ladies I was with was talking about the struggle we all have understanding how God allows suffering, especially the suffering of children.
I wish I could have been at that conversation circle, I need encouragement. Yes, you provided some in your post.
When I have the “what kind of God” question, I answer with “the kind that sends his own son to be crucified, and then I ask myself “so what do you expect from a God like that” Really, He lets his own son die, why would I ever expect anything from a God like that?
i think this was a great post. For one thing, god’s love is like a parental love. i have been giving my dd medicine for her throat this week and she is screaming mad at me and saying how can I give her this—? Why? because I love her. God’s ways are not our ways. His love is difficult to understand sometimes…but it is love.
i do agree about ppl needing to do God’s work on earth.
Suffering is allowed to bring about a greater good
