I’ve heard many people ask questions like, “Why does God allow bad things to happen?” “Why do bad things happen to good people?” or “Where is God when I truly need him?” I’ve asked these questions to myself and questioned my faith in the process.
But I realized, God does not promise us exemption from suffering. In fact, he all but promises we’ll suffer.
God does not suggest that we won’t go through fire, but rather that we won’t burn up. He mostly promises to be there with us, grieve with us, encourage us, renew our strength, and grow us into good people in the process.
