Asking broad sweeping questions like, “Why is there evil in the world?” or “Why do bad things happen to good people?” is like trying to paint God with one color. Each of us is completely unique and God wants our relationship with Him to be the same. So rather than standing at a distance and throwing these questions out to the wind, we should draw close to Him and whisper, “What can I learn from this Dear Lord and how can we together survive and thrive?”.

    See, this is why I’m so glad I discovered wordpress.com. “What can I learn from this Dear Lord and how can we together survive and thrive?” I would never have thought about my relationship with God from that perspective. The more I think about it, the more deep that statement becomes because there are many layers to it. I will bring it up in Sunday school class today. Thank you.
