When God Pretends He Is Not There

“If God is loving, and powerful, and sovereign….then why does my life hurt so much?” “Where is God when I am in pain and call out to Him….and He seems so silent?” “How can God’s plan be loving, how can He be good — when my life is so hard?” These questions, and others like them, are some of the hardest we face in our lives as Christians. Suffering can bring crisis in our faith like nothing else can. If we will persist through the hard questions, however, suffering, even the worst of it, can be an opportunity to know God’s closeness and His love for us through Jesus in a much more real, personal, and lasting way than we ever could in the sunny times alone.
