Severe Questions

“Adversity is hard to endure, and can even be harder to understand. If God were really in control, why would He allow the tragic auto accident or crucial job loss? How could He permit cancer in a loved one or the death of a child? Grappling with His concern for us we ask, “Why is God allowing this?” or “What have I done wrong?”

–Jerry Bridges

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

Romans 8:28
