With all do respect for your faith.. and I'm not saying God didn't have anything to do with it...
It's just when I read comments like that..I can't help but think of all those families and friends who have prayed so hard and diligently for the
return of their young loved ones... and they are still searching for answers.
It must make them feel like God did not care about their child?
I myself.. thank the people who cared to search.. and the dogs who are so "awesome" at what they do.
I appreciate the way you made this post. God does not always give us the answer the answer we pray for. However, God always answers our prayers even
if it is not the answer we hoped.
I will answer this the best way I can from my own experience from my faith.
Many of us have suffered in our own right. Maybe some have suffered more than others. Personally, when I was 24 I suffered a brutal attack.
Although tragic for me, my family and friends I was forever changed through this horrible event. That change did not take place overnight, it took
place over many, many years. Had that not happened to me I would not be the person I am today. (My story is here)
above top secret
I now know that there is only one I can depend on for everything, and that is Christ.
God came to earth to deliberately put himself on the hook of human suffering. In Christ Jesus, God experienced the greatest depths of pain.
Therefore, though Christianity does not provide the reason for each experience of pain, it provides deep resources for actually facing suffering
with hope and courage rather than bitterness and despair.
I hope I have not offended you with my response.
This speaks to the argument if God is good why do so many bad things happen to us.
