I am NO dummy by any means---but the answers seem to evade me.
I do not know why there is war, crimes beyond my imagination, hunger, desperation, loss, disease, trial after trial. Why there are parents who would sell their children, why some are born into desperation, why some choose temporary pleasure over eternal life, why some are profoundly disabled. I have no answers concerning the Why's of life.
I also dare to question God. I rant and rave over the unfairness in life. I challenge what good could come from circumstances. I get mad and quit talking to Him--give up on the desperation and seeming futility of trying to make it better for those trapped in the pit of despair. I look up and yell, "REALLY???". I become perturbed when He ignores my solutions and things continue to worsen in this world. I wonder why He stops communicating with me---where He has gone---why He is ignoring me. Why He has left me alone in the crowd.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower;
the righteous man runs into it and is safe.
