Asking, Why, God? We are all alike in that none of us are immune from suffering, struggles...tribulations...adversary...distress. Yet our suffering makes us feel separate. These tribulations come in all different kinds of packaging. Wrapped up as a diagnosis, terminated relationship, human error consequence, monetary or emotional depletion.
The ordeal may have not have happened to us personally. Worse yet, it may have afflicted one that we love more than life itself.
"Never sacrifice what you don't know for what you DO know!" (says Jack Graham).
Good grief is one that becomes a hope seeker. Follow the Light of hope. Who hopes for what he sees? Are we there yet?
Keep on keeping on! Don't let the paralysis of analysis stop you. Keep your eyes on the Prize!
17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. ---2 Corinthians 4:17-18 (NKJV)
