In reality...we often don't know why God permits certain things to happen to us. We do not know that evil is real, and we live in a world that is ravaged by sickness and death and sorrow- a world that isn't the way God intended it to be. Some day Christ's victory will be complete and all this will be changed- but not yet. In the meantime, put your faith and hope in Christ Jesus. He knows what it is to suffer; He went to the cross for us. And because He did, we have hope even in the midst of life's darkest hours.
" If only my anguish could be weighed and all my misery be placed on the scales! It would surely outweigh the sand of the seass." - Job 6:2-3
